Altra Demo Group Run

Thursday, September 30th at 6:00 PM, we will be hosting a demo group run featuring Altra Running here at our store. Altras are well known for their wide toe box and balanced cushioning, creating an excellent running experience. Give them a try for free! Our rep will be bringing favorites like the Torin and the new Paradigm 6.
All abilities welcome and encouraged, walkers, runners, dogs and strollers!
The course crosses a few busy intersections, so we ask that you be extra cautious, obey traffic signals, and never assume a driver “sees” you.

  1. Sign the waiver
  2. Obey traffic signals
  3. Wear bright clothing OR use lights OR other visibility gear.
  4. All dogs MUST be on a leash at all times.
    Please remember to sign waiver at the run. For more information, call 479-434-3571.
    In the event of inclement weather (lightning/heavy rain/high winds/tornadoes/hail/ice), the event will not be held.
