If you're local, you don't have to run on your own, just pop down to our store and join either of our friendly running groups...or both of course, if you're feeling energetic. You can run with us on three evenings throughout the week with either our coached running group or our Nike Run Club. Both clubs aim to make your running better.

Coach and manager Stefan is the man behind the motivation of this sprightly bunch of fitness and running enthusiasts.

So, whether you're completely new to running or you're chasing that sub 40 minute 10k time Stef will be at hand to help, encourage and advise.

Every session is different

Every session is always mixed and a little different to the next. Incorporating interval runs, hill sessions, stair climbs, endurance runs, running specific body weight exercises and sometimes a combination of a few, this group will continue to challenge you as your fitness improves. Running form and technique is one of Stef's favourite areas to focus on.

Every 8 to 10 weeks Stef will organise a timed 5k run that is used as a fitness test to gauge improvements. The 5k route carefully mapped out never disappoints and will always put your fitness to the test.

Expect nothing less than a warm welcome and a well guided training session around Glasgow's West End.

Back in 2009 Nike Running provided the world with the genius that is Nike Run Clubs, supplying city runners with a free, weekly training hub.

Here at achilles heel our Nike Run Club is open to all: all abilities, all backgrounds and most ages – you get the idea. Both novice and seasoned runners are welcome to participate in weekly runs as long as you're 18 or over, if you’re 16/17 you can attend with written consent from your parent or guardian. Or even better, you can haul their butts along too.

It's tough but fun

Club organiser and leader Paul aka The Running Man is always on the look out to keep things interesting and fresh by introducing new routes around the city's West End with distances varying from 5-10k. Paul's monthly speed session is a night no one wants to miss, it's a challenge to us all and a great opportunity to dust off your racing slippers and push yourself that little bit harder. Post run stretches take place back at the shop and refreshments will be at the ready.

The clubs are supported by Nike's corporate marketing team who make sure to maintain a regular presence and collaborate with us to put on Nike Trial nights to allow runners the opportunity to try on the latest Nike gear.

Amongst all that, we enjoy smashing heartbreak hill and mocking treadmills.

Many people come straight from work so feel free to pop along early and use our changing facilities to get yourself ready to run. Bags and other belongings can be stored away safely.
