A Snail's Pace Running Club was founded in 1978 in Southern California as 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 and distance, from sub 6 minute to 12+ minute miles. You will always have friends to run with for training and racing! Come trail a Snail!
