Run City at Ellicott Square Fitness features Woodway treadmills, which have superior running surfaces and are designed to reduce the friction that traditional treadmills cause, reducing the shock to the body's connective tissue. 



What are the hours of operation?

Run City at Ellicott Square Fitness is open 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. Feel free to come whenever it is convenient for you. We are even open on weekends and holidays.

How does autopay work?

When you sign up for autopay, the membership fee will be deducted directly out of the account you have set up. If you choose monthly, the membership fee will be deducted from your linked account every 30 days from the date you sign up. If you sign up for 3-, 6-, or 12-month package, the fee will be charged immediately and then come out of your account automatically at the expiration of the term you picked (for the same package as you initially signed up for). Check out the membership options here.

What is your cancellation policy?

Should you need to cancel your membership for any reason, there are two options. You can put a freeze on your account if you are taking more than 30 days off from the gym, or you can cancel at any time with 30-day written notice (please email runcityesf@gmail.com to cancel). You can keep your access fob to re-use in the event that you sign up for membership again (door access will be terminated 30 days after cancellation notice, and can be reactivated upon signing up again).

What about the key fob? How do I receive it, and is there a fee associated?

Once you sign up and pay for your membership, you will receive your fob the next day. To get it the same day, you can call 716-331-2472 to get a temporary PIN, which will be good for 24 hours. There is a $10 one-time activation fee for the fob (it is yours to keep in the event that you sign up for membership again; there is no charge for re-activation).

If I buy a pack of classes, does that include a gym membership?

No. Classes are sold separately from gym memberships - you will register and sign in for all classes, while gym access is 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. Check out our classes here.

If I sign up for a membership, can I bring a friend to work out with me or give them my fob to use?

No. This rule is a zero tolerance rule. If you bring a non-member in or give them your fob to use, you will lose the right to be a member of the gym. In addition, all members must scan their fob individually at the door on the way in, even if you are with a group of members. In the event of an emergency, Run City needs to be able to account for all patrons in the gym at any given time.

What about parking?

You can park on Swan Street between Washington and Pearl. The entrance to Run City is on Swan Street. Parking is free from 5pm-8am and on weekends. It is $1 per hour during normal business hours Monday through Friday (8am-5pm). Download the Buffalo Roaming app to pay for parking throughout the city.
