Top award for Up & Running


Up & Running scooped the best national retailer prize at The Running Awards 2017.

The team picked up the Gold award in the highly acclaimed Best National Retailer category, as well as Silver in the Customer Service category and Bronze in the Online Retailer category.

With an array of categories from best charity to best marathon, the industry awards are a prestigious highly-sought prize, decided purely by nominations and votes from runners, and Up & Running were delighted with the support they received from their customers to achieve this success.

Six members of the team travelled down to indigo at the O2, in London, for the glitzy ceremony, ahead of this year’s Virgin Money London Marathon.

Gillian Macfarlane, Up & Running managing director, said: “It was a phenomenal event.

“We are all delighted and thrilled to have won these prestigious awards, and cannot thank our customers enough for their votes and our staff team for their commitment and hard work throughout the year to ensure our success.

“I know that we have inspired many customers to take up running and make running part of their lives and, as we approach our 25th birthday, we will continue to keep the UK running with the same integrity and commitment that we started with in 1992.”
