About the company
Established in 1979, A Snail's Pace (ASP) is the premier running source in Southern California to find everything you require to satisfy your running and walking needs. With running shops in Pasadena, Brea, Fountain Valley, and Laguna Hills, ASP has its finger on the pulse of Southern California running, walking, and triathlon.
Not only do we stock one of the widest selections of walking and running shoes anywhere--with all the best brands, including Adidas, Asics, Brooks, Etonic, Mizuno, New Balance, Nike and Saucony--but each of our stores also features Apparel Concept Shops from leading Fitness Apparel manufacturers like Nike, Brooks, Asics, New Balance, and B.O.A. Here, you can see some of the latest and greatest apparel designs in the industry.
In addition to our retail offerings, our unparalleled Training Programs are unique, fun and very successful. The Beginning Running program guides walkers and those new to running in a safe and supportive group atmosphere. Our Half-Marathon Training Program, held several times a year, uses the group concept to improve fitness levels and prepare runners to run one of the many local Half-Marathons. And, of course, we have our annual Marathon Training Program beginning in September to prepare runners for the Los Angeles Marathon.

ASP has been serving runners and walkers of ALL ability levels since 1979. And our very popular running club--A Snail's Pace Running Club (ASPRC)--was also started back in the '70s. Our running club is populated with beginning runners, trail runners, 5-10k road racers, marathoners, ultra-marathon runners, and most of all: fun-runners!
