Accelerate was conceived from a desire to find one running store where you could shop for everything running. A place you could count on getting the best service, knowledge and experience and a friendly approach to the sport of running. Accelerate began by visiting events with a retail event store and with a website. Eventually the Sheffield store opened its doors in February 2009.
Accelerate is actively involved in the local running scene and in 2009 began the Gritstone Series - a number of established fell races, bringing them together as one series.
The store grows by recommendation and draws runners from far and wide. Having teamed up with Accelerate Performance Centre, bio-mechanics assessment, soft tissue therapy treatment and podiatry is available at Accelerate.
Accelerate is Sheffield and the Peak’s Largest dedicated Running Store Road. Running, Fell and Trail, along with Adventure Racing are all covered in store. A wide choice of product is backed up with an unprecedented level of experience and running knowledge.
