Delays in processing and shipping orders due to COVID-19

A message from JackRabbit regarding fulfillment delays due to COVID-19

To our JackRabbit Community:

The past couple of months have been challenging for many reasons and we want to say thank you for your support and patience during this difficult time. We’ve continued to prioritize the health and safety of our staff and community, but we know that has caused frustration with your orders and we’d like to apologize for the delay and fill you in on what is happening. As the Shelter in Place orders was put in place across the US, our retail locations were closed in accordance with state mandates. In the face of the pandemic, it was and continues to be first and foremost our responsibility to keep our communities, staff, and customers safe.

At the same time, with stores closed US customers were, for the main part, shopping online. As a result, we experienced a significant increase in online orders. The distribution of these orders is dependent upon our stores which are also our key distribution centers around the US. We have had to adapt and adapt quickly. We are currently operating at much less capacity in all locations, slowing down the speed at which we can process orders. Due to the increased online demand and distribution changes, we appreciate there have been delays. As a result, we have been working at the highest capacity possible to ensure we are safely processing and delivering orders. Our teams are working exceptionally hard every day to work towards getting back on track with orders, responding to customer inquiries, return requests all with the goal of getting runners back out there.


If you have an open order with JackRabbit, what is the best way to contact us?

We encourage you to email or use live chats. We assure you, we see every email and will respond. It just might take more time than we are all used to. In an attempt to try and help answer your questions we’ve included a culmination of FAQ below.

The entire team at JackRabbit is grateful for your business and we are grateful for runners. We are navigating this experience together and we appreciate your patience. Not only are we adjusting to the current situation, but we are also planning towards what the new normal might look like. What is certain are the continued benefits of running on so many levels. We will continue to run in whatever manner is appropriate to join our tribe of putting one foot in front of another. Thank you for your continued patience and may we run together – be it virtually, in spirit, or in parallel – for many years to come.


Shipping Updates/Timelines: 

As mentioned above, our stores and our fulfillment centers are not able to operate at full capacity which is delaying some order processing times. In addition, orders are shipped via UPS or FedEx who are also experiencing delivery delays. Please allow 10-14 days from the time you order. You can always track your items with the tracking number in the shipment confirmation email on the FedEx or UPS website. If you missed the email, you can view the tracking information on Just log into your account, go to your Run Rewards summary and scroll down until you see your previous orders. Click on “view order” and find the link that says “track your order” to locate shipping information. Product availability will determine when items in an order will ship. Orders with more than one item may be shipped from separate fulfilling locations so you can get all your items as swiftly as possible. The delivery time for your order is based on the time it takes to process and pick your order in the warehouse PLUS the UPS transit time. Estimated shipping timeframes shown in checkout are just that…estimates. Please note: We are not currently shipping to PO Boxes, APO, FPO addresses.
