LET'S RUN TOGETHER AGAIN
It's time to start reopening our stores, and we can't wait to get you ready to run with all the expert advice, specialist services and great running kit you've been missing, while following all the government advice designed to keep you and our experts safe. Make sure to check your local store page for the latest updates. It's great to see you.
Whether you're just starting your fitness journey, making the most of a new routine or trying out some home workouts, we've got all the kit you'll need. Our collection has the best running shoes, clothing, smart watches, wireless headphones and injury and recovery accessories you'll need to thrive in and out of lockdown. Getting out or staying in, we have you covered.
STRAVA RUN CLUBS
5K, 10K or just OK, for us it's not how far you run that matters, it's that you lace-up, step-out and just go running.
We might not be able to run together physically, but that won’t stop us from getting those miles in! Join us by sharing your solo runs with the club — and see what the rest of the club is up to!
If you're after some hints and tips or just inspiration to get you through this period, our blogs are a great place to start. For home training, our core workouts and injury prevention blogs feature video demonstrations of simple exercises you can do at home to stay in shape and prevent injuries. For some inspiration to keep on running, Cathy and Mollie's marathon training diary follows their journies to the big day, including how they're navigating the postponement and social distancing. The Asics Sound Mind Sound Body programme focuses on staying on top of your physical and mental health during this tough time. They will all be updated regularly so make sure you keep checking in.

If you’re a runner you’ve probably heard of a foam roller, most of us swear by them
It’s cost and time effective, doesn’t need much space, but it can hurt (which usually means you’re doing it right).
With so many to choose from, differing in size, shape, foam type, and cost, follow this guide on how to choose the best foam roller for you.
Running gives you the freedom to take part anywhere, anytime, at your own pace. Neverthless injuries are bound to arise so it's vital to be aware, train proficiently and stay ahead.
