Who owns Sweatshop ?

Posted: 29/04/2015 at 17:11

Good to know I'm not the only one who noticed a lot of advertising for Sweatshop and by pure coincidence, they get retailer of the year!!! Shame to see an institution of running retailing in the UK going down the pan...

Have I purchased the wrong spikes?

Posted: 10/04/2015 at 17:07

The Techstar Allround isn't a sprint spike, it's a general purpose track spike that can be used for most track events. XC spikes these days tend not to be much different in terms of cushioning and protection from some track spikes, you'd be better off using trainers for training and save the spikes for racing!

Ron Hill teamwear clothing is done by a company called Ridgeway Textiles, good firm to deal with from experience

Brooks Adrenaline - dramatic changes?

The Vapor 11 is essentially a GTS 12 but with a different name, great shoe.

Adidas Adizero Tempo's

Bostons will be getting Boost technology in September so will be a very different shoe. Adios is being discontinued from July, but the Adios Boost will continue. I'm racing and doing speedwork in Adios Boost, fantastic shoe, decent amount of cushioning for such a lightweight shoe

adidas MD 2 or avanti 2 for track training sessions?

Avanti have far more cushioning, best spike I've ever worn


Gait analysis, as waste of time?

Posted: 19/12/2013 at 14:00

I've had numerous shoes that fit well and feel comfy, yet have given me problems. I've done numerous assessments to ensure my running form is as good as it can be, yet I've still had problems. I've had less problems when getting shoes after gait analysis.

Gait analysis is not totally accurate but I do feel it can be a useful guide, so get frustrated when people make such sweeping generalisations that it's a con.

I'm not saying it's the be-all and end-all, but what is a better way of getting the correct shoes then?

Non league xc races in the midlands

Posted: 08/10/2013 at 15:03

Could try the Gloucestershire X-Country league (, quite a few Warwickshire clubs take part. First fixture was on Saturday but there are 3 more at Cheltenham, Malvern and Gloucester. Unattached or non-member club runners can run, only a couple of quid per race.
