Steven Clark

Steven started running his sophomore year in high school with West Forsyth’s cross country program. He loves the 5k and 10k distances, but he still has goals of running longer distances. Steven's favorite running shoe is the Hoka One One Clifton. "I love the shoe for being light weight and great cushion." You will see Steven running mostly on the Bethelview Greenway, but you might see him on the trails at Haw Creek Park!  He loves to follow professional runners and two of his favorites are Tyler Andrews and Fernando Cabada. He recommends looking up their stories. He believes both runners are great examples of consistenty which will lead to great results whether they are big or small! "Hope to see you soon at North Georgia Running Company!"

Stop in! We would love to meet you!
