JackRabbit’s new ownership is bad news for New York’s triathletes

JackRabbit Sports has been the specialty store of choice for New York City’s triathletes (and serious runners) for years, but that era may be coming to an end.

According to the New York Times, since the Running Specialty Group (RSG) acquired the company in March 2015, swim and bike apparel has been disappearing from the shelves as the stores switch their focus to running only.
