Grand Opening of Ad Astra Running – Our Presenting Sponsor in 2015!
Our 2015 presenting sponsor, Ad Astra Running, will be opening their doors for the first time on October 3rd, 2015.
Be among the first to shop at Lawrence’s locally owned running specialty store! Come by to check out the newly finished space – and bring your friends.
The store will be open from 10 AM – 5PM. Click here for map to the store. It’s located just off Massachusetts Street on the northside of 8th street. It’s directly across from the Sandbar and next door to Sandbar Subs.
About the Owners:
We are Grant Catloth and J. Jenkins, co-owners of Ad Astra Running.
This store is born of a belief that Lawrence and its environs deserve a local running store, locally owned, and locally focused. We care about this community because we’re part of it, and we want to spend our days working with and for all its members—be they runners, walkers, or those simply seeking comfortable shoes that fit (their needs as well as their feet).
We have met a lot of friends these past seven years, from all over northeast Kansas, and we hope to carry those friendships with us as we start this new venture.
Ad Astra Running—the name comes from our State’s motto: Ad Astra Per Aspera (“to the stars through difficulties”). We chose it because we want our store—your store—to be rooted in this area we’re proud to call “home.”
Plus we thought it sounded cool.
Thanks for reading and see you soon!
—J. and Grant
