Scott and Sarah Gall, owners of The Runner’s Flat have been into running and fitness since their grade school years. Scott’s first 1/2 Marathon was at age 9. With uncles who were collegiate distance runners and a father who was a collegiate athlete, they were introduced early to endurance sports. Both ran collegiately and also qualified for the US Olympic Trials, Scott in the Marathon and Sarah in the Steeple Chase. Previous members of both the US Mountain Running Team and the US Snowshoe Team, as well as pro licenses on the Xterra, off-road triathlon circuit, Sarah and Scott have lived a life that exhibits keen focus on healthy living and fitness.
When they moved back to the Cedar Valley, Sarah’s birthplace, Scott and Sarah had hopes of impacting their community in a positive manner. In the Spring of 2006, The Runner’s Flat was opened. Continuing to focus on helping others achieve their health and fitness goals while encouraging new enthusiasts has been a sure fire way to ensure a successful tenure as the Cedar Valley’s only specialty running store that is also locally owned. By offering expert service w/ professional Gait Analysis, community events, run clubs, and kid’s programming The Runner’s Flat has continued to prove that their focus is on a healthy community.
