As the number of people running has increased, so has the number of retailers selling kit and there has never been so much choice available to the customer, because of this we have to work extra hard to ensure we are the right choice for you.
This means using our years of experience both of running and selling running kit, to bring you the best advice and gear available. All our staff are active users of the kit we sell, even if some of us are shuffling rather than running these days! We have raced, trained, run and explored all over the Lakes, the UK and the wider running world with several records held under this roof; from the most Munros in 24hrs (Jon Broxap 1988 – 78mi, 33,000m 29 Summits) to the Lakeland 100 (Terry Conway 2012 – 19:50:37) while on track and road we have Phil who has represented his country several times, taking Bronze in the 800m and 1500m 2005 World Cerebral Palsy Games.
Aside from our running experience, we have been selling this stuff for a long time. We have seen changes come and go; technologies and innovations emerge and become the norm. We regularly undergo training from our brands and suppliers to keep up to date on the latest ranges and even have a hand in advising some of the new developments. Thanks to how long we have been in the industry, we are very lucky to have a close relationship with some of the biggest brands in the industry, meaning we can respond to customer needs and feedback quickly and effectively.
We are not a big company, we are not a chain and we are not owned by a big conglomerate, we are family run and runner focussed, we hope this is reflected in the way we deal with our customers and our place in the running community.
