About Us

We opened our doors in 2009 as an independent retailer, with only a small range of specialist brands and a love of running.  Today our passion to provide you with the best customer experience possible is as strong as ever.  What's changed is we have greatly expanded the choice of brands and products to include the best in the industry.  All of our staff are runners of different levels and abilities and they are very knowledgeable, so feel free to contact us with any running related questions.  Whether it's training advice, injuries or about any of our products, we are always happy to help.
