Lucy Taylor
Shop Manager

Lucy moved to Scotland for a Masters University degree back in 2015, fell in love with Scottish running and subsequently never left. She joined the Run4It team back in 2016 and was promoted to the management team in August 2017. A seasoned club runner and trail running enthusiast, Lucy started her journey ‘attempting’ to run 60m hurdles at the age of 9 for Bristol and West AC and much more recently ran the London Marathon for Aberdeen AAC, you really can’t get more diverse than that! With track racing all the way through to marathon running experience under her belt, she has a wealth of running knowledge to offer!

Jason Kelly
Assistant Manager

Following some early success in primary school and then many years away from the sport, Jason took up running again in 2016 and quickly saw some big improvements in his times across all distances. Now a regular on the north-east road racing circuit, his favourite distance is the half marathon although he also loves longer training days out in the mountains. Jason joined the Run4It team in 2017 and recently joined the management team alongside Lucy and Nick

Nick Milovsorov
Assistant Manager

Nick is old. Very old. So old in fact that no one can quite remember how and when he started running. All they know is he always has! There are rumours and vague recollections that it may have been sometime between his 8th and 10th birthdays. Suffice to say he is still soldiering on. Over the years he has performed on the road and cross country to a respectable club standard and unlike a good wine has not got better with age. Fortune favours the persistent however and in recent years he has amassed 12 Scottish Championship medals, of varying hues, in the Super Vet Category. These have included the East XC Champs, Master National XC Champs, 10k Road Champs plus road and XC relays. Every year gets a little harder with a new influx of oldies but with 1 year still in this age band the opportunity is there to add one or two more.

Sandy Laing
Staff Member

Sandy is one of the newest members of the Aberdeen team. Whilst he is busy studying medicine, he would always find time to go running…if he wasn’t constantly injured! Running for both the University Athletics Club and Aberdeen AAC, his ideal distances range from 10k to marathons. Being from Skye, falling in love with running was easy!

Jobs at Run4It

We are often told that the difference between us and other shops is our people. We think they are just the best. Each team member goes through a period of induction, training and assessment no matter what the job is. Over the years we have invested a load not just in the training but also in ensuring that we are giving the team the very best possible terms and conditions we can – it’s even written down in our business values.

Sorry, there are no current vacancies for this shop.
