New Sweatshop opens in Bournemouth


For over 40 years, Sweatshop has been helping runners of all abilities to Be The Best They Can Be bringing them the largest choice of the very best running equipment available on the market backed by advice and information on products, nutrition, training and technique.

With university level training on specialist areas including biomechanics, nutrition and breast health/specialist bra fitting, the teams are renowned for their customer service, receiving the accolade for the best running retailer in the annual Runner’s World Personal Best Awards for the past eight years consecutively.

The new Bournemouth store opens in the town centre on 15 August making the total number of current stores 41. 

So you will soon see the Sweatshop Running Community (SRC, #yellowarmy) pounding the streets and beach offering free weekly running groups with rewards for running for all runners, irrespective of age and ability and led by qualified Run England Group Leaders. Rewards include a free technical running t-shirt after just five runs, and members also benefit from special training events, talks and product previews.

Nick Pearson, Managing Director of Sweatshop said: “We are thrilled to be opening Sweatshop in Bournemouth, offering runners the chance to experience our unrivalled customer service, the best choice of technical running gear, as well as the support and training advice through our Sweatshop Running Community weekly runs. We hope to get everyone joining us on our runs soon.”
