IT’S OFFICIAL – Up & Running IS the best national retailer, as voted for by customers at the annual Running Awards.

The team scooped 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 and Up & Running could not be more delighted with the support they have received from their customers to achieve this success.

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

“It was a phenomenal event” said Managing Director Gillian Macfarlane “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”.
