about the owner

I am Rob Pullen, the proprietor of Leicester Running Shop which has been trading since 2007. I’ve been in the running scene in Leicestershire for many years, regularly competing in the Summer and Winter road leagues, various Cross Countries and fell events.

I’m a member of Westend Runners and the Bowline Climbing Club. I have previously been a member of Wigston Phoenix, Owls AC and Birstall RC. During my school days I ran for school, county, and the Coritanians in the 800 and 1500 metres and Cross Country events.

Since university, where I studied Biology, I had worked in several technical positions before starting the shop.
