What a gorgeous sunny Reading half marathon Sunday we had!

First of all, well done to everyone who ran it and completed it - you are amazing! It was probably a bit colder than you thought - so we were prepared to provide you with gloves and other accessories to warm you up!

Secondly, we started at 5am to set up and wait for you to visit our stand - big thank you for all of you who visited, said hello and got things you needed! :)

We had a great team working on the stand, supporter by Allison from the head office and Oxford manager Giuseppe!

We also had Jamie who represented the most sustainable compression brand #Pressio and its new biodegradable range. Have you heard of that before?!!!

Lastly, thank you Goldline Events and Unleashed Performance Reading Half Marathon and Green Park Challenge for a great race and partnership :)
Can't wait for the next one!

P.s. take notice of the picture of me with about 6 layers of jumpers πŸ€ͺ Still had to dance around to keep warm! What a great fun though ;))

New brand in store...... 🀩

🚨PRESSIO🚨

Not just another apparel brand. This is the most sustainable brand we have in store with their clothing made from fully recycled yarns from plastic bottles.

They stand out by being transparent and honest about their production and ethics.

Assistant manager Tom has had a chance to test it on a few runs and loved the brand! The compression brand boosts the performance by increasing muscle power and aids recovery by supporting the muscles after your training.

Come to store to find out more!

Sad day at us at Up & Running Reading… today is our Yellow Fellow Jake Dellow’s last day πŸ˜•

We will miss tripping over his bike 🚴🏿 , his many bananas breaks 🍌 , but mostly his mischievous smile after dropping one of his famous puns 😜

Wishing you all the best on your next adventure! You will be missed by all! Though I have a feeling we will RUN into you around town soon enough… πŸ˜‰

Don't forgot tonight's SRG 5k run!! 🀩

We still advise all runner's joining us to bring either something reflective or to wear a head torch/chest light but it won't be long until we say bye viz. πŸ‘‹ 😁

See you all later 😁

Is there anyone looking for a challenge?

Only 4 weeks away but a great race to do for a great cause!

We’re a local charity that supports families in Reading through difficult times, to help parents give their children the best possible start in life.

Last year six people ran the Unleashed Performance Reading Half Marathon for us, raising just over Β£2,000. Families are really struggling this year, so we’d love to raise more!

Would you consider running Reading Half Marathon, the Goring Gap Half Marathon or, if you’re feeling more ambitious, the Goring Gap 50K Ultra Marathon on our behalf?

Taking part in Reading Half for us is free of charge – we’d just ask you to try and raise at least Β£50 – and you would get 15% off the fee for the Goring Gap runs.

If you’re interested, feel free to either comment below, drop us a message or email [email protected]. Thank you!

01/03/2022

The weather may not be pleasant but it doesn’t stop us running!! 😁

Come and join us for our SRG 5k run this evening. We head out at 6:30pm tonight so make your way to the shop from 6:15pm.

Our Story

Back in 1992 Gillian, a running enthusiast embarked in a modest way with our first small running shop in Harrogate. The formula was, and still is, simple yet effective:

Provide second-to-none customer service for the running and fitness community, and
be better than your competition.

Since then the company has gone from strength to strength; and now we have shops all across the country, including a successful franchise network, and a thriving web sales operation.

Voted by runners of the UK as the best national retailer 2019, 2018, and 2017 at the Running Awards.
