A Snail’s Pace Monrovia is nestled up against the beautiful San Gabriel mountain range in Los Angeles County. At this location, we serve a mix of both trail runners and road runners, and many local running communities along the Foothills. Located at the base of historic Myrtle Avenue in Old Town Monrovia, runners and walkers alike will often make a trip out of visiting our shop, then eating at one of the many nearby restaurants. There is something for everyone!
Join us every Tuesday night at the shop, 6 pm, for our run fun. All paces, distances and abilities are welcome!
First Tuesday of the month:
Hug-A-Huggins: Both the 5 mile and 2 mile routes make a pit stop at Elite Race Team member Heather Huggins’ house, where her adorable two kids greet us with their own little aid station they built. Runners can indulge in fresh fruit and home baked goodies!
Second Tuesday of the month:
Kyle’s Krazy Loops. Practice your speed and drills in a workout prescribed by Monrovia fit specialist and APU athlete Kyle Bueckart.
Third Tuesday of the month:
Trucker Tuesday: Wear a trucker had for fun, and run the 4.5 mile route that will look like a truck on your gps map of the run! This route takes us up a mild hill and on a portion of the nice Royal Oaks foot path.
Fourth Tuesday of the month:
Pub Run. Tag along with the pub runners on a 2 or 5 mile route through Monrovia, which is approximately 3 miles road and 2 miles trail, then toast the beverage of your choice with everyone afterwards!

Photo scavenger hunt. Scour the streets of Monrovia looking for unique things, each item found results in a raffle ticket for some cool prizes!
