Thank you ATRA for listing and promoting our Sandhill Crane All Trail race.
Whether hiking or running marathon distances require the right shoe and proper fit. Coach Gunn has long promoted the need for a good "boot fitter." He recommends the Fleet Feet Mishawaka store in his training lectures. The staff is knowledgeable and their in-stock shoe selection is very good. And he appreciates the discount offered to his training team members.
