"Just get your kit on, step out the door. You'll be as right as rain."
Dr. Ron Hill
An inspirational founder, Dr. Ron Hill, and our home, the industrial North of England, have made us what we are today.
For almost 50 years we've been putting the miles in - but It's not something we make a song and dance about.
We prefer to focus on expertly crafting faultless running gear, we owe that much to every runner out there pushing themselves. Running is pure, simple, unpretentious and deeply human. You become a runner by running – that's it. Put one foot in front of the other and go. Then it's just a question of will; legs and minds versus miles. A glorious, stubborn pursuit of better.
Like our founder, we define ourselves by our dedication to running and our unstoppable, daily hunt for improvement. Our testers have run thousands and thousands of miles over the years, and every stride of their insight and expertise lives in our gear. We're aware there are other sports, but we have no interest in them. All our energy goes into continuing Ron's legacy – forging the best kit we can for the purest sport there is.
