Hi, I'm new to the site. I started running a few months ago and am going to do my first 10km in April.
I need to get some decent shoes and looking through some of the threads here it seems the thing to do is to get advice from a special running shop.

So, can anyone recommend a good running shop near Coventry/Warwick?

Warwick Sports in Warwick have always been good with me. I can give you directions if you need them.

They will definitely take care with shoes for you.

I don't know about Coventry - try to avoid it as much as possible.

Wrong side of Brum but if you're passing then try Runaround Sports in Worcester, near Foregate Street station.

I've been to running shops down here, but Runaround in my humble and honest is by far the best. I make the trip "to see my family" whenever I need new shoes!

as mentioned by Ultra bunny Lorraine Baker in on the Burnaby Rd. there's also Grays in Rugby.

Theres quite a few on the Yam Yam side of brum. Sutton as already mentioned Birmingham Runner, Grove sports, Black country runner. But they'll all mean a trip up the M6 for you.
