The team at Up & Running are in a celebratory mood after scooping gold in the Best National Retailer category at the annual Running Awards last Thursday (20 April). The running retailer has been an integral part of runners' training plans nationwide for over 21 years and, as well as their gold award, also claimed silver in the Customer Service category, and bronze in the Online Retailer category.
Six members of the Up & Running team travelled down to the O2 Arena in London for the glitzy ceremony, ahead of this year's Virgin Money London Marathon.
“It was a phenomenal event,” said managing director Gillian Macfarlane of the awards ceremony.
“We are all delighted and thrilled to have won these prestigious awards, and cannot thank our customers enough for their votes and our staff team for their commitment and hard work throughout the year to ensure our success. I know that we have inspired many customers to take up running and make running part of their lives, and as we approach our 25th birthday we will continue to keep the UK running with the same integrity and commitment that we started with in 1992.”
BBC Breakfast presenter Mike Bushell was on hand to present the team with their award.
