}, 1000);
});

Answer Source

It's all about z-index property and nothing wrong in your javascript. Your span.runmenu wasn't clickable because the navbar2 block was positioned over the span. Change the css and get the problem resolved.

give

.runmenu {
  z-index: 999;
  cursor: pointer;
}

.navbar .navbar_two {
  z-index: 0;
}

See the fiddle

Preview

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('span.runmenu').click(function() {
    console.log("ok");
    $(".menu").animate({
      "right": 0
    }, 1000);
  });
});
