Tortoise and Hare Running & Fitness Center

Since the store opened in 1978, the cornerstone of Tortoise and Hare Running & Fitness Center has remained its staff members, who are well-versed in all things athletic and led by owner Karen Holappa. Today, Karen works alongside her son, Matt, and a team of fitness experts who help customers select the perfect running shoes from brands such as Adidas, Nike, and Asics. They might recommend a neutral cushioned shoe to support high arched feet, a motion-control shoe to comfort flatter arched feet, or cement shoes for life-size statues. The staff also can advise customers about athletic accessories such as toe flexors, which alleviate pain caused by bunions.


The employees are ultra respectful and don't try to push anything on you if you aren't interested.
