About Us

Our Story So Far…

Run North West was founded in 2016 to offer high quality races for the running community. It all began with the Alderley Edge bypass 5 mile in June 2016 with 500 participants. By 2022 Run North West have 20,000 race participants with a reputation for high level event experiences on fast courses with the best medals around.

In 2018 our business grew as we became events organisers and running specialist retailers when Run North West re-opened one of the countries most famous retail running stores. Originally opened 40 years ago by Ron Hill MBE, the Hyde store on Market Street has serviced runner’s needs continuously until September 2017 when Sports Direct the holding company for Sweatshop decided to close the store along with many other Sweatshop locations. With a team of runners it was a natural progression from our existing events business to showcase our love of running and our passion for great products and exceptional customer service. Run North West offer you the full running solution including events, shoes, merchandise, nutrition and sports massage. Soon after opening our first store we extended our offering online with the aim of giving you the same great products and range found in store. In 2019 we took the decision to move our store to Wilmslow, Cheshire with this being the HQ of our events business. By merging our team to one location we have been able to focus even more on providing a world class experience.
