Our Staff

A Snail’s Pace continues to be named one of the 50 Best Running Stores in America for the 12th time in the past 13 years and a finalist for the store of the year twice, most recently in 2015. We are thankful and honored for this prestigious award, but we couldn’t have done it without the best staff in the business.

From top to bottom, we are blessed to have such a diverse and eclectic group of individuals that share a vast amount of running knowledge with each and every customer. If you’re a walker, half marathoner, ultra-marathoner, long jumper, sprinter, Spartan racer, or crossfitter, our staff will get you into what you need to reach your goal!
