Meet our staff


Mike opened the Horsham running shop in 2003. A member of Horsham Joggers for over 20 years he has completed a number of both road & off-road marathon events. These days however, with less training time available, it's more a case of `shorter' distance 10K road running with a preference for off-road, which includes nightime headtorch running in the winter months.

Jackie and Pete have a similar wealth of running retail experience to advise on all your running and fitness needs.

Gait Analysis


It's important that your running shoes fit correctly: our trained staff can help find the right shoes for you: in a short session on our treadmill they can do a video gait analysis using sophisticated Dartfish software.

Find out more about gait analysis at UP & RUNNING.

NB if you would like to enjoy the full benefits of our gait analysis system and shoe-fitting service, please arrive at least half an hour before shop closing time.

Run With Us


One of Mike's local favourite runs is St. Leonards Forest ...

From the shop, head away from town along the Brighton Road turning left into St Leonards Road (by the pub). Continue until reaching Hammerpond Road and turn right (there is no pavement at this point so ensure you are running on the correct side of the road (i.e. towards oncoming traffic) as it is narrow and twisty in places. This road lives up to its reputation as being the local `switchback' however when you reach the Roosthole Car Park on your left, turn into it. Before turning left again into the car park itself, turn right and follow the track which will take you into St Leonards Forest and the start of what is locally known as Mick Miles Race. Local legend has it that Mick Mills (or Miles), a famous smuggler, met the Devil besides an old oak tree. The two raced for each others souls and such was their speed that the trees were set ablaze. Mick won and kept his soul but since that time no tree has grown on the path of their legendary contest.

Follow this track (1.5 miles approx) until you almost reach the barrier across it and turn right following the path down towards the bottom of the forest. Follow the lower paths all the way around until you eventually come full circle rom where you started i.e. the beginning of Mick Miles Race. Take the path (back down this time) to the Roosthole Car Park and retrace your footsteps, returning to the shop in Queen Street.

More Local Info for Runners


Alfred Shrubb Exhibition

Local Sussex born Alfred Shrubb was arguably the greatest runner ever in the history of athletics. As the forgotten hero of British athletics, he astonishingly not only set 7 world records in one night, but escaped death from an iceberg and raced against horses after his ban from the Olympics. A holder of 15 world records he lived up to his nickname of `The Little Wonder'.

See the exhibition now at the Horsham Museum - more info here
