What we're about

Welcome to A Snail's Pace Running Club (ASPRC), the place to go for Mission Viejo (formerly Laguna Hills) ASPRC Members and others who would like to run and socialize with us and hopefully join us! ASPRC will keep you up to speed (whatever speed you are comfortable with) on all Club runs and related events. We run for many different reasons, with varied abilities and in many different ways, but we love to hang out and experience this little bit of life together. This group is created for people to meet and to share running routes, schedules, tips, experiences, and other social events. We are not professionals, we just want to create a fun environment for people to run and train together. We look forward to seeing you soon.

CALLING ALL SNAILS! WE NEED YOUR HELP AND YOUR COWBELLS! Let's show our LA Marathoners our Snail Spirit. We need as many enthusiastic volunteers as possible to help motivate and rejuvenate our hard working marathoners at Mile 23. Please wear your Running Club shirts so our runners can spot you...and yup, you guessed it...MORE COWBELL! Bring anything that makes noise. Here are the amazing details: IMPORTANT...you want to drive in via 26th street...there is parking behind Chase Bank and also just past Chase Bank there is an alley on the left that leads to a parking lot right across from where our Snail tent is at San Vincente and 26th. The alley is between Brentwood Shipping and Artisean Needlepoint across from the 76 station. The yellow ASP tent inside the greenbelt along San Vicente Blvd. This location is just past mile 23...check it out: https://www.google.com/maps/place/226+26th+St,+Santa+Monica,+CA+90402/@34.0475794,-118.4912799,617m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x80c2a355efd57789:0x70e37f6b36c9d49f?hl=en San Vincente Blvd. closes at 5 AM, but there should not be a problem accessing that shopping center by taking the 405 to Santa Monica Blvd...head south and turn right on 26th. Arriving EARLIER than 7:00 AM is recommended due to possible traffic and road closures. Thank you everyone, your support is greatly appreciated!
