WIN BROOKS ADRENALINE GTS13 WORTH £100!

Lucky 13 is our best Brooks Adrenaline GTS yet. We
have paid special attention to the underfoot flex by
adding Omega Flex Grooves and continuing Omni
Grooves into the forefoot, allowing the outsole to bend
and shape naturally. Continuing with the tradition of a
tailored fit, stretch eyelets lock into the medial side to
capture the foot better and technologies like Flextra
and anatomical Brooks DNA deliver customised
stability and cushion.

Closing date is 30th June 2013, Good Luck!

Keeping You Up and Running Since 1992
Up and Running first appeared on the high street in 1992, providing expert advice for those with a passion for serious running. Now, over 20 years later, we have more than 30 different stores and an e-commerce arm with more than 1,500 products in stock, yet our commitment to providing individually-tailored expert advice regarding
running gear remains.

We stock all the major brands, from Books, Asics, Mizuno and New Balance to Inov-8, Sub 4 and Ronhill, and we ensure that what we sell you is the right product for you, wherever your running endeavours take you - whatever you want to achieve, we want to help.

Most people may think a trainer feels comfortable on their foot when they are sat in a shop, but it may not be so suitable after a few miles pounding the pavements. Knowing how the foot affects your gait, as well as its potential for injury, is crucial before selecting a good running shoe, and in many cases bad advice can be worse than no advice at all. This is where the expertise on offer at Up and Running can be vital.

Pronation concerns how the foot rolls to one side after the heel strikes the floor. Ideally, the foot should roll inwards slightly after striking, ensuring that the force of the impact is distributed evenly. Of course, not everyone runs in the same fashion, and most people actually overpronate, meaning that the arch collapses through the gait cycle and the foot rolls inward excessively. Do this consistently with a long period of running and it can cause problems in the ankle and higher up the leg.

Up and Running's expert staff will analyse how you run to establish your pronation type and identify the trainers that will correct it, taking into account other factors such as running frequency, terrain type and budget. We're aware that injuries will still occur from time to time, and we'll be there to help if this unfortunately happens to you - our experts can also provide assistance with braces and supports that will keep your training schedule on track.

Up and Running is committed to making running a better experience for everyone, helping you achieve your individual goals. To find out more or to view their range of running shoes visit www.upandrunning.co.uk/shoes.html
