Posted on by Accelerate Running Store

The Feline SL from Dynafit is the first in their new trail running range. It’s the combination of a shoe for high alpine terrain too rough and muddy peak district slopes. Striking colorways isn’t the only reason they will have you turning your head for a second look. While still a relatively unknown brand in the UK, Dynafit has a big presence in the European sky touring seen. We are seeing some exciting things coming from them in the coming season not just in the new shoes they have but also in their high-performance apparel.

Team A, The A Team

Posted on by Team Accelerate

I’m writing this after a tough, dark and windy solo session. Just a getting it done session. It’s the first proper session I have done since we have gone back into lockdown. This has got me thinking about how much value a team brings. If you have always been solo or always been part of a team, you may not be fully aware of how valuable it is. However, having been a member of (in my opinion) one of the best training groups out there to then having to go back to training solo is very weird. The Team Momentum: … Continue reading

Posted on by Accelerate Running Store

So, here we are talking about how we at Accelerate have taken to adapting our knowledge and experience into a personal shopping experience. Normally when coming into our store you would find yourself holding a cup of tea or coffee, or if you are like me and weird, a glass of water.  We would measure your feet, analysing your running to gain an understanding of the shoe you are after.

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
