'A Snail's Pace' Gets National Recognition

Monrovia runners, you're in luck: Our city is home to one of the nation's top running stores.

A Snails Pace, a running store that opened in Monrovia in July 2011, was recently voted one of the "50 Best Running Stores in America," according to this Monrovia Weekly story.

Snails Pace opened in 1979, and recently relocated from its longtime home in Old Town Pasadena to Old Town Monrovia, 750 S. Myrtle Ave.

According to the Weekly:
This national recognition is sponsored by Competitor Magazine and Formula Four Media. They conduct an intense, one-year evaluation process including nominations from consumers and members of the trade, and mystery shopper reports. They also rate the stores relationship with the community it serves.

“We are very thankful and appreciative for all our customers who have supported our stores and voted for us as one of the 50 Best Running Stores in America, We also want to thank our hard working and dedicated employees for helping us achieve this prestigious award,” stated Dave Reynolds, president of the company.
