Brighton Store

Our Brighton store has all you need to get out running or to replace those worn out shoes, shorts and shirts that you use on your daily run. So that we can provide the high level of service that we pride ourselves on, a shoe fitting (including gait analysis assessment) will usually take between 15 and 30 minutes.

Customer Testimonials

"I would like to write to tell you about the great customer service that I received in your Brighton branch earlier today.

I was looking for a pair of trainers and had been to two well known sports shops to buy a pair. The customer service there was dreadful and I left empty handed.

I found Runners Need on Google and popped in. I'm so glad that I did! Isobel was fantastic and asked appropriate questions to gauge what my needs were from the footwear. She managed to get 4-5 pairs out in my size and gave me time to choose.

I was reluctant to pay the price as I had Googled the trainers and they came up cheaper online. I was price matched and couldn't believe how lovely both Isobel and her colleague had been.

I will be returning here again."

"I came into your shop yesterday early afternoon for the gait analysis, and was looked after by a girl whose name I cant remember (Joanna).

I never usually send emails but she deserves a bit of recognition. She was absolutely fantastic, seemed really knowledgeable, gave me information above and beyond what was necessary and I left with a clear plan of action to achieve my step up from half marathons to full marathons.

I've always had issues with my knees and she explained exactly how to remedy this and what I could do to help with the pain, beyond just what running shoes to buy (even though she explained this very thoroughly too). I left feeling like I was a running expert because of her.

"I would just like to commend the service provided by Darren when I attended the Brighton branch last Saturday.

He was very friendly and helpful and provided an excellent, professional service."
