About Accelerate and our Store

We love all things running.

Accelerate if more than a running shop- we have an amazing running community across Sheffield of all ages and abilities, a sports clinic Accelerate Performance Centre, a fantastic team of athletes who we are proud to support and so much more with our involvement in wider running community.

The Accelerate shop in Attercliffe is the HQ for all of this. We have a fantastic team of highly trained staff – who will talk running all day long- whether you are new or seasoned runner pop in for any advice or just a chat. We stock the biggest range of road and trail shoes in the area and only stock clothing, shoes or equipment we believe in. Most of which we have tried and tested. We also have a strong environmental policy and only stock brands fit with our values.

Our running community is run by the most amazing run leader and coaches. We have numerous groups throughout the week- Accelerate Trail Runner, Running Past 50 and WoodRUN.
