Shop Info ASP has been serving runners and walkers of ALL ability levels since 1979 and has been recognized as one of the TOP 50 RUNNING SHOPS IN THE USA for all four years the honor has been awarded. Our very popular running club--A Snail's Pace Running Club (ASPRC)--was also started back in the '70s. A Snail's Pace Running Club is populated with beginning runners, trail runners, 5-10k road racers, marathoners, ultra-marathon runners, and most of all: fun-runners! In addition to our retail offerings, A Snail's Pace's popular Running Academy courses are unique, fun and very successful.

Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
