Running Club

A Snails Pace Running Club, founded in 1978, is a social club designed to accommodate athletes of all abilities. You may have seen us in our New Balance Snails Pace uniforms at local races. The club consists of four Chapters with over 400 members: the original Fountain Valley Chapter, the Mission Viejo, Brea and Monrovia chapters. Our members run at all levels of ability, so you will always have friends to run with for training and racing! There is also a Racing Team available for those who can meet the qualifying standards.

The ASP Running Club is Social group for all levels of runners. Members meet either at the stores or at nearby locations to go on weekly fun runs.
