KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - There are only two cities in the United States that DICK’S House of Sport calls home: New York, NY and Knoxville, TN.

Even New York City doesn’t have the new Nike Running Experience, but they are exclusively at the DICK’s House of Sport Knoxville for this weekend only. It’s a celebration of the new Nike Pegasus Trail 3 shoes, released this week and only available to buy in person at the Knoxville store.

Try on the new shoes and take them for a spin inside the Nike tent, built to resemble a run through the mountains.

In addition to trying out the latest shoe technology, Nike athletes are scheduled throughout the weekend with numerous Q&As and training sessions to bring their knowledge and skills to other athletes in our area.

To attend, you must show proof of your DICK’S ScoreCard and Nike Membership connected accounts in the DICK’S app. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test within the last 72 hours is required to attend the events outside the store. Rapid COVID-19 testing will be available on-site for customers who wish to attend but do not have proof of vaccination or a negative test. Children under 12 years of age do not require proof of vaccination or a negative test but will require a temperature check.
