West Stride is a locally owned speciality running store. We fit runners and walkers for the correct shoe and carry many lines of apparel and accessories for the runner or walker. We also host groups run on many Saturdays and very early on Wednesday mornings too! We help you hit your stride!
Most guided sightseeing tours pose severe health risks—muscle atrophy, loss of bone density, and blinding rage, to name a few—due to the lack of physical activity. You’ve probably suffered one or all of those symptoms while on these tours:
Oconee Outfitters eliminates pretty much any reason to stay inside?unless of course a customer needs to buy some more outdoor gear. The store stocks kayaks, bicycles, hammocks, and other items that allow for adventure in the great outdoors. The staff also rents kayaks and tunes up bicycles. Then it's off to hit the surrounding trails or kayak down a river.
Each trip from Big Frog Expeditions lasts approximately three-and-a-half hours, and provides all of the necessary whitewater equipment––Coast Guard–approved personal-flotation devices, paddles, and helmets––to pit you against Mother Nature's flowing water tresses on the Ocoee River. Today's deal includes transportation to the launching site, pre-trip orientation, and a gearing-up session before you hit the aqueous road. Big Frog's professional guides will climb aboard the self-bailing raft and help you steer through the thrilling sights and frothy spumes of continuous class III and IV rapids. With today's Groupon, you can choose between exploring the Upper Ocoee River or the Middle Ocoee River from the available rafting dates on the calendar.

"We offer a window to the outdoors that many could not experience without a guide," says Rob Benson, manager of Big Frog Expeditions. He and his staff give visitors to southeast Tennessee a closer look at the area's beauty during guided whitewater-rafting adventures, kayaking trips, biking outings, and hiking excursions.
The guides?who are CPR- and first-aid-certified when necessary and who participate in swift water rescue classes?take locals and out-of-towners to little known waterfalls and high ground with breathtaking vistas or help groups easily navigate Adventure Class rapids on the Ocoee River. After the outdoor jaunts, guests can unwind at Big Frog's outpost, which feature 27 platform tents, volleyball and basketball courts, and hot showers, which is what every camper desires apart from a hookup for their cotton-candy machine.
