John is a seasoned runner, who will take on any challenge, from Park Run to ultra. Although most of his fast twitch fibres appear to have deserted him, he still enjoys taking part and sharing his experiences with fellow runners. He is not averse to running in disguise (Peter pan or a Smurf! to name but 2) and enjoys his annual pilgrimage to Durness to compete in the Cape Wrath challenges.
Romain joined Run4It in 2016, only a few weeks after he landed in Scotland. Senior Assistant Manager at the Dundee store and Run4It Journal content writer, Romain’s a busy chap, but he spends his free time wisely – out in the open, tearing up the Scottish hills and trails.
Lucy joined the Dundee team in October 2020 and is studying Dentistry at the University of Dundee. Lucy has run regularly from a young age, competing in athletics, but now she enjoys anything from a 5km to a marathon. When Lucy isn’t running she also enjoys road cycling and hill walking.
Catriona joined the team in June 2021 and is studying Medicine at the University of Dundee. She has been running for as long as she can remember and has steadily worked her way through the running disciplines, from sprinting to cross country to hill running. Her current passion is trail and hill running, mainly for the coffee and cake afterwards!
Ana joined the team in June 2021, and is currently studying Liberal Arts at Dundee. At eighteen, she started running to stage an intervention for her sweet-tooth and to make her head happy. A year on, she enjoys road running and sometimes lighter trails when persuaded by her nature-loving co-workers. When she’s not got her running shoes on, she likes drinking good coffee, playing guitar, and spending time with nice folk.
Natalie joined the team in May 2019 and is studying at Abertay University. She takes part in road and trail running and likes to mix up her training by including weights and high intensity training. She is also a keen sailor, hill walker and mountain biker.
Michael started running to get into shape for football but ended up becoming a distance runner for Fife AC. A physio’s worst nightmare, he spends most of his time injured, but when he can actually run he loves running cross country and can often be found lying exhausted on the ground at the end of a race.
Taking place in the delightful surroundings of Tentsmuir forest, these runs are usually held on the 1st Friday of every month. Meet at 6.15pm for a 6.30pm start. Car parking is available at the Links road car park, with possible overflow parking on the grass opposite or just outside Foodmek. From there, it's a short walk/jog along the shore to the Tayport picnic area for registration/start. We usually have around 50 folk joining us each month, it's free for all abilities to take part, friendly and welcoming, so come along and enjoy!
For more information visit facebook.com/pg/Run4ItDundee/events/ or call us on 01382 226744.
There are several jogscotland groups who stop by the shop - Angus, Fife, and City of Dundee all immediately spring to mind. Visit the jogscotland website to search for your nearest group and beome a member.
We are closely affiliated with the 'Hawks', a long established and friendly club with a whole mix of levels, abilities and age groups.

We think Fife organise more events than any other club we know but are happy to be proven wrong! The club have training nights at venues throughout Fife and welcome most ages and all abilities. They are active in both the road running and hill running scenes.
A friendly and very active club in the east neuk of Fife.
A relatively new club we've made friends with. They have a really active training programme and an active Facebook page.
We are great friends with Alastair Dall at Footcare Scotland, a very busy and successful podiatrist with clinics in Perth and Edinburgh, he also can be found doing additional work with Heal Physiotherapy here in Dundee. We are happy to send people over to Alastair as his knowledge and ethics are second to none.
We have worked closely with Heal Physiotherapy since we opened, expertly lead by Lynne and Sally, who head a team of experienced physiotherapists with the specialist knowledge and expertise to enable you to look after yourself and to enhance performance and prevent injuries. They have practices on Dudhope Street, Dundee and within Saints Sports in St Andrews University.
Based at Good Health & Fitness in the City Quay, where Stephen is the managing director and senior instructor, both Stephen and Louise have the expertise to help you achieve your fitness goals. If you want some really good strength and conditioning training to help with your running, these are the people to speak to. Louise has been known to run the odd ultra or two as well!
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.
