COVID-19 Update


In these difficult times, we wanted to let you know that we are thinking of you. And we hope that you, your families and friends are keeping well and strong.

As a small independent specialist company, we are undoubtedly going to go through a challenging period. Understandably, there has already been a massive drop in customers shopping with us during this challenging period, and we still have to keep paying our overheads meanwhile. We are all gratitude to you, our amazing customers. You inspire us every day, which is why we stayed open as long as we could. Due to the evolving situation with Covid-19 we’ve now taken the decision to temporarily close from 6pm on Monday March 23rd. We will miss seeing you and interacting with you in our branches. But we will be back! And we’re still here for you in a virtual sense :-)

During these extraordinary times, we are reminding ourselves and our customers that running releases stress, lifts the spirit and protects our mental health too. And that's what we need now more than ever.

Although we have taken the decision to close our shops, we remain committed to providing you with service, advice and support in the following ways:

  • Our online shop is open
  • Online Gait Analysis is coming soon, so watch out for our exciting launch
  • Training advice, stay-at-home fitness videos and more on our website
  • You can still talk to us – just call 0207 222 1314
  • We’ll be sharing our latest news and inspiration on Instagram, Twitter and in our newsletters

So do reach out to us, we will be happy to be of service to you in any way we can. When the time is right, we will be excited and happy to welcome you back into our shop. 

We would like to reassure you that the health and wellbeing of all our customers & staff is our priority. We are closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and following the advice of Public Health Authorities. As a result, we are introducing a wide variety of further measures to minimise the impact on public health.


We can reassure you that our online department is adhering to the advice of Public Health Authorities to keep our customers safe, while making sure you get your gorgeous new running gear on time.

When packing online orders, our staff are washing their hands and sanitising their workplaces frequently. Our delivery partners are monitoring the health of their drivers closely; vehicles are disinfected daily and drivers are washing their hands and using hand sanitiser regularly.


With a sad heart and a responsible attitude we decided for the time being to cancel all our upcoming store events, in order to protect the health of our customers and staff. 


Our in-store Sports Clinics are now closed. For the time being, due to the corona virus situation, we will only continue with our online clinics. Please check the listings on the Run Better page to see what clinics are still available. We are trying as much as possible to continue offering the best service we can in this unique situation.


At this time, we have been working to develop a whole new set of online inspirational videos to help you exercise at home and strengthen your physical and mental health. So do stay in touch via our newsletters or follow us on Instagram and Twitter. 

We love and cherish each one of you, members of our Run and Become community. And while none of us knows how the next few months will unfold, we here at Run and Become promise to continue working hard to support you during this period. 

All the best
Shankara & Dipika
Directors of Run and Become
