Peter Walsh Recalls His Favorite Memories At Coogan's, America's Track Bar

On The Run: Peter Walsh | Ep. 70

Coogan's, America's most iconic track and field bar, is set to shutter its doors in May due to exorbitant rent increases in the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City. Jojo is joined by Kevin Sully, the newest member of the FloTrack content team, to interview co-owner Peter Walsh about plans to save the bar, excitement for one final blow-out Millrose Games after-party, what they're going to do with all of the track and field memorabilia that covers the walls, and how a dying bar in a working-class neighborhood is perhaps analogous to the status of track in the greater sports world.

We also discuss which dessert on the menu is most popular — the Carl Lewis or the Matt Centrowitz, the Alan Webb or the Drew Hunter?
