We're are all still high as kites from our recent fun and games in London, coming away with not one, not two but three highly prestigious awards from the annual Running Awards.
We are so happy to be recognised as THE BEST National Retailer, the Silver award in Customer Service and the Bronze award in Online Retailer.
When Up & Running started 25 years ago this year, it was so important to our founders to be an ethical company with integrity, that supports runners, the running communities around us and to be there for our customers with advice, support and the products that they need. This fundamental is equally as important to us today and remains the lifeblood of our business. Every member of our staff team embraces this ethos and that is why we are so proud to be recognised as the best in the business.
Gillian (MD) plus 5 members of staff headed to London for the ceremony – we knew we'd been shortlisted – but we had no idea if we had won. We all visited the Marathon Expo in the afternoon, caught up with various colleagues from the trade then made our way to the O2 arena for the evening's entertainment. Swanky and glitzy, the awards dinner was a seriously showbiz affair. Mike Bushell (from BBC Breakfast) was presenting the awards and Dame Kelly Holmes also presented. We were really in running paradise.
We have strived to be the best and we are now as committed as ever to remain the best.
