The Saucony Endorphin Pro

Posted on by Team Accelerate

I have been lucky enough to get my hand on a pair of the Endorphin Pro’s. The latest entry from Saucony in the carbon shoe battle happening right now. If you head to any busy running area you are bound to see at least a couple of people wearing carbon plated shoes. Ever since the first few companies released carbon plated shoes and amassed a cult following, PB’s and world records started dropping like flies. Until now I haven’t had a pair, so when the Endorphins bounced through the door I was very interested to see if the hype they … Continue reading

The Brooks Launch, Updated and Improved

Posted on by Accelerate Running Store

The Brooks Launch 7 is a lightweight and responsive trainer from Brooks. It uses their BioMoGo DNA midsole for a well cushioned ride while still giving off the racing flat responsive feeling. For team Accelerate member Jason Ward it has been his go to shoe since it was first released in 2010. Since then he has had a least 2 or 3 pairs of every iteration all the way through to the current version. We caught up with him and he shared his reasons behind why it is one of his favorite shoes. Jason has represented Great Britain on multiple … Continue reading

Race to the stones 100k – Virtually

Posted on by Accelerate Community

On July 6th 2020 Accelerate community member Simon headed out what can only be described as a monumental challenge both physically and mentally. Keep reading to hear what crazy feat he attempted.   The alarm goes off and I rush to silence it because I don’t want to wake my wife up: not at this hour. I creep through to the bathroom where I find my running kit piled in the corner ready for me and then I make my way downstairs to grab a quick bite to eat. I unlock the front door and in the porch I pull … Continue reading

Together Again… No Flapping Here!

Posted on by Team Accelerate

How many weeks? Fourteen, I think since we last met up for Team Training. So what have we been doing? With racing still looking like it is only on the horizon and possibly not set to return for a while, perhaps next year for larger events, training has not been as difficult as you may think. Some folk will always train towards race goals, such as the need to cover a set distance. Yet the Flamingos are very much geared towards improving that which needs improving.  It could be strength, it could be endurance or perhaps lactate tolerance. So during … Continue reading

UYN Community Face Mask, Tried and Tested

Posted on by Accelerate Running Store

What a strange world we are living in. People wandering around in face masks on is becoming a more and more common sight. However, running in a mask can be a completely different affair. Steaming up glasses, sweaty faces and struggling to breath are just a few issues you can run into. Well we have started stocking UYN Community sports face masks, greeted with some great feedback. So we asked our friends over Our Running Revolution to try one and see how they got on. The UYN masks are highly breathable, quick drying and have an ergonomic fit to help … Continue reading

Scott Supertrac 2, Making the fast, faster!

Posted on by Team Accelerate

Accelerate-Scott Team member Harvey has been lucky enough to get his hands on a pair of the new Scott Supertrac 2’s and over the last month has been putting them through their paces. Keep reading to hear what he has to think about this iconic shoe from Scott. When I initially heard Scott were updating the Supertrac i was very sceptical as they have easily been my favourite trail and fell shoe for the whole 2019. Weather it was racing or training, short or long it worked for it all. Thankfully Scott follow along the lines of if it ain’t … Continue reading

Scott Kinabalu Ultra RC

New Scott Kinabalu Ultra RC

Posted on by Accelerate Running Store

If there is one thing we can be certain of with Scott Running is this: “If it ain’t broke leave it alone”. This day and age that is a rare thing. Too many shoe brands update their shoes every six months or just bring in a new fresher colourway. Not Scott. Yes, as a shoe gains traction (Yes, that was intended :-) ) they will change the colour or the upper annually. Not a guarantee though. What you will see is the successful elements of one shoe taken into the next newer shoe. This plus something different and improved to … Continue reading

Opening!!

Posted on by Accelerate Running Store

The New Norm. Yes, it looks certain that we will be able to open the doors on the 15th June. The last few weeks have been very different for us all.  Yet, the level of support that the store has received has been fantastic, at times overwhelming.  The messages we have received, support with purchasing socks and Goodr sunglasses have quite simply ensured we will be back. Thank you, to you all. You know who you are. We have been helping folk with shoes over the phone, using video and photos to help get the selection right. Then often delivering … Continue reading

The New Polar Grit X – Tried and Test by Will Burton

Posted on by Team Accelerate

Late April Polar released their latest in wearable training aids in the form of the Grit X. Boasting longer battery life, some fancy new features and all in all an almost indestructible package. Accelerate team member Will Burton has been using a Grit X for the last few months and shares his likes and dislikes about Polar’s latest invention. I have been lucky enough to own a few Polar watches since I started running, they M430, V800 and now the Grit X. Something that always impresses me with polar is their attention to detail, even when it comes to the … Continue reading

Here We Go: A New Normal

Posted on by Accelerate Running Store

It looks like small shops will be able to open on the 15th June. Finger crossed this won’t change in the lead up to it. We all knew that the day would come, yet we have to remember, these are still very uncertain times and we must all continue to play our part in slowing the spread of the unseen Covid-19 virus. I have spoken to a number of people who have had the illness and the effect on them has been quite different. Thankfully they have all been fit and healthy and have come through the disease. Yet, in … Continue reading
