About the Shop

At A Snail’s Pace Running Shops, our specially trained staff will make sure you’re fit in the running shoes that are best suited to your individual needs. Our 5-Step fit process typically takes anywhere from 30-45 minutes, during which we conduct a digital foot scan, which analyzes your foot and arch length, height and pressure points, analyze your foot strike using a treadmill and video cameras and make appropriate footwear recommendations from the over 200 running shoe styles we carry. All you need to do is discuss these options with us so we can help you select the ideal pair which fits and feels the best to you. It’s easy and it’s fun!

In addition to running and walking shoes, we also carry a full line of running apparel and accessories. Whether it’s shorts, shirts, or tights; accessories for injury prevention or injury care; hard-to-find items from head lamps to hydration belts – you name it, we’ve got it.

We have all the name brands you have come to trust in running – Adidas, ASICS, Brooks, Mizuno, New Balance, Nike, Saucony and Under Armour – along with many hard to find specialty brands – Altra, Hoka, Addaday, Swiftwick, Feetures, Travis Mathew, Pro Tec, Zamst, Zensah and more.


 

Be sure to look into our renowned running club, which can make your running a more enjoyable and interpersonal experience. We also offer a range of training programs in our Running Academy, which will get you ready for your first 5k, or that marathon or half-marathon that you’ve been thinking about. A Snail’s Pace is your one stop shop for all your running needs!

In addition to our retail offerings, A Snail’s Pace’s popular Running Academy courses are unique, fun and very successful. Running 101, Running 102 and Running 103 are courses designed for new or returning runners looking for a supportive and safe group-training atmosphere in which they can progress through the three early stages of running fitness. As a follow-up, the Running 201 course is held several times a year at the Running Academy, and uses the group concept to improve endurance, stamina, and prepare runners to run one of many local Half-Marathons. To complete the upper division classes offered at the Running Academy, there is Running 301, which will get you to the Finish Line of one of the local marathons with a safe and sensible group training over six months. Many runners have started out in Running 101 and, over time, built up their fitness to the point where they have successfully completed their first marathon!
