Praise for Run and Become

  • “This is in my view the best general running shop in the UK. The shoe selection is massive. Most importantly, the staff are all running nutcases like me (but don't be put off by that if you are a beginner – it's a very friendly place). For keen runners, a trip to R+B is something approaching a religious experience...”
    Eddie Wilson, January 2017

  • “Excellent customer service this morning. Whilst looking for a new pair of trainers Amaravati analysed my gait and i tried a selection of shoes suitable for me. I think there were about 10-15 shoe boxes out at one point. No rushing or pushy sales just good helpful advice. Would highly recommend a visit to run and become.”
