Come running with us.
That’s why we’ve started the Sweatshop Running Community.
What is the SRC?
It’s an entry level running group within every store and runners are incentivised for regular participation. The wider aim is to create a companywide running community linked via a common webpage on our blog and communicated with by e-newsletter. The Running Community doesn’t just stop at this entry level running group with many of our stores offering a variety of running groups for all abilities.
What is its purpose?
We want Sweatshop to be able to provide support for runners of all abilities. If you have never run before but want to start, or run but have no one to do it with, we can help by giving you a place to come to, free of charge, where you will have a chance to go out with supportive and friendly staff at Sweatshop plus other runners to share this experience – with a real community feel.
- A maximum 5K beginners run/walk every week
- Guides on every run – you’ll never run alone
- Back marker pacer – no one gets left behind
- Qualified running leader at every store
- Mapped out local running routes
- Great free kit incentives – the more you run, the more you get
- No membership fees – EVER!
- 5 weeks – FREE adidas Sweatshop Running Community technical t–shirt (worth £14.99 – available to buy)
- 25 weeks – FREE nutrition pack
- 30 weeks – FREE Sweatshop foam roller (worth £25)

*Your run record covers a 52-week period as indicated overleaf. Only stamps claimed in this period count toward SRC rewards. You may run more than once a week with the SRC but you will receive only one stamp per week. All rewards are collected from your home store. ** No change will be given if chosen shoe is less than £100. If shoe costs more than £100 the difference can be made up. Applies to sale and non-sale footwear.
How to get involved
If you’re already a member of the SRC we look forward to continuing to run with you. If you’ve not signed up – you don’t need to register to come running with us*. Why not try one of our runs and if you get as much from it as we hope, you may wish to register online so you can then be eligible to receive some incentives as a reward for the more times that you run with us!
All of our SRC groups meet in store before the run, where a member of the Sweatshop team will be waiting to welcome you. There are no rules about what you should wear when running with the SRC – comfy, weather appropriate clothing and a trusty pair of running shoes are all you need! There will be a dedicated area in the store for you to leave your belongings while you run and a well earned drink of water waiting for you when you get back.
