TerraLoco is the only store in our area to provide video gait analysis for runners. Hop on our treadmill for about a minute and we’ll figure out what support category you need for an injury-free run. Our staff are experts as analyzing your gait, foot shape, arch and more, and can quickly eliminate or recommend the best shoe for you. Plus, with our 30 day guarantee, you won’t be stuck with a shoe you don’t like! (Don’t worry, non-runners will also enjoy expert analysis!)

 

Get active & give back at the same time! Almost every Monday at 6PM, March through October, we host $5 5K for a different local charity. Simply arrive a few minutes early to pay & register. To learn which charity we are hosting each week, see our Calendar of Events.  All ages & abilities are welcome to attend. Walk, jog, stroll, run, or bike – however you choose to move forward is up to you! Well-behaved, leashed, and vaccinated pets are also welcome to join.

TNT is TerraLoco‘s training and accountability group. Perfect for beginners, or those who just need a little more encouragement, our Coaches will lead you through a group workout every week. Coaches also provide customizable at-home workouts, support, and encouragement along the way. Weekly motivational email, technical shirt, and store discount included in your registration. TNT meets Thursdays starting March 22nd at 6PM. We offer three, 9-week sessions. Each session is only $40! Multiple session discount available. 
Contact Coach Jessie ([email protected]) for more information.

 

Need a little more of a challenge? Join our Middle Distance Group, April through the first part of October! This group meets Wednesdays at 6:30 PM for hill workouts, track workouts, or tempo runs. FREE to join, this group will meet off-site every third week. See store for more information or join our Facebook group!

 

At least once a month, TerraLoco offers classes or hands-on workshops on a variety of topics. Upcoming events include Self-Defense for Runners, Foam Rolling 101, and Injury Prevention. Each class will be facilitated by an expert in the field. Follow our Facebook page or check out our Events Calendar for details!
