Travis & Sara Esterby
Travis and Sara Esterby have been a part of the Clarksville community since 2005 when Travis was stationed at Fort Campbell. Their passion for fitness and running lead them to open The Runners Hub in March of 2012. Their goal was to provide quality running shoes and accessories in a warm and friendly atmosphere and promote health and fitness throughout the community.
Travis is the more competitive one in the marriage. When he is able to he enjoys running ultra-marathons but is known to race a 5K here and there. Sara runs the shop and she enjoys running and has a few half marathons under her belt. Together they have two kiddos Aubrey and Atlas, whom are often at the store (insert eye roll from tween).
In June of 2017, the Esterby's joined the Fleet Feet Sports family and are looking forward too helping the community become healthy and reach their goals while providing excellent customer service!

My passion for running did not begin until March of 2018. It took six months after developing a curiosity about running to give it a try. I immediately fell in love! My journey started with joining the first training program offered by Fleet Feet Clarksville. It was more than just a training program and I met some amazing people. Completing a half marathon was a personal goal of mine. I was able to accomplish this goal by being part of an amazing group. This experience led me to pursue my certification as a RRCA Coach. Being Coach Amy has been rewarding as I get the privilege to help others overcome obstacles and achieve their goals. So, like most novice runners, I had to start somewhere and understand all the things that can prevent someone from trying. As I always say, "don't compare your journey to the runner ahead of you, it's your journey!"
