So you think A Snail’s Pace is a funny name, do you? How about Loeschhorn’s for Runners? Yep, that was our original name back in 1979 when Dave Reynolds decided to try the running store business! If you were a runner in Orange County in 1979, Loeschhorn’s is a name you probably recognize. John Loeschhorn established the very first running shop and social running club in Orange County in the latter ’70s. His original store in Costa Mesa was a Mecca for runners from all over Southern California. Our 1979 Fountain Valley store–originally located on Warner Ave directly across from Mile Square Park–was the 4th Loeschhorn’s store in OC and the very first franchise store.
