Shaun joined the Run4It team as Assistant Manager in June 2017. He first got into running in late 2013 and went on to complete his first half and full marathon the following year. He enjoys any challenge that running can bring him and will take part in everything from Parkrun up to Ultra Marathons. Since 2018 he has developed a desire to get better by training better. As a result he has seen his race times fall quite considerably. Some of his proudest moments include a 1st place at his first ever Ultra (Glen Ogle 33, 2018), his first "sub 32" 10K (31:54, 2021) and completing a solo Marathon in 2 hours & 32 minutes! (2021)
Charles joined the Run4It team in January 2015. He is a qualified gym, Spinning and Concept 2 Rowing instructor at the Black Isle Leisure, in Fortrose. He is a keen runner and has completed the Highland Cross and several half marathons over the years. After a stumble the first time around he completed the Dublin marathon in 2017. Fun fact - He can row a half marathon faster than the majority of the population can run it.
Gordie rejoined the Run4It team in October 2016 after a 5 year hiatus. After a brief sojourn on the roads, he found his true love in the hills. He is now a mid pack V50 with over 125 hill races to his credit. He is Luke's father and enjoys nothing better than a simple day out with junior on the highveld.
Alasdair joined the Run4It team in October 2018. He is a keen Orienteer and has been a member of Inverness Orienteering Club since 2008. He participates in Cross Country racing through the winter season and dabbles in track running during the summer. He is however most in his element when Orienteering all across the UK. Alasdair's best performances were in 2016 and 2017 when he won the U16 Scottish Winter League. He currently attends Inverness Royal Academy in his senior year and hopes to study forensics in the future.
Nairn Road Runners are a small, friendly club, located in the coastal town of Nairn who cater for all running abilities. They run on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday nights, details and times can be found on their website. We have been working with NRR since December 2013 supporting both their Turkey Trot on Boxing Day and 10K in March.
Inverness Harriers is the largest running club in the Highlands based at Queens Park, boasting a whopping membership of over 300, including 3 of our own staff. Being our local club, Run4It has always worked closely with the Harriers, resulting in a great partnership; we support them at events, and they support us in the shop. Whether it is track or field, cross country or road running you’re interested in, the Harriers will cater to it. Meeting twice a week, the details can be found on their website.
The most elusive of running clubs in the Highlands – If you manage to catch 5 members together, it’s an achievement! They specialise in hill running, with some cross country thrown in, and only running on the road when they really have to. Training happens on Tuesday, but members will meet for unofficial training sessions throughout the week.
We are really pleased to continue to work closely with jogscotland who now have several groups in the local area, including Muir of Ord, Culduthel and at the local Leisure Centre. To find out more about meet up times and locations please visit:
The Inverness ½ Marathon is the perfect Spring race to keep you motivated and training through the winter months. This popular race follows a scenic route with great PB potential through the Highland capital of Inverness. The route starts alongside the banks of the River Ness near the centre of Inverness and takes in many of the city’s icons. A warm Highland welcome awaits all runners as they approach the finish line on entering Queen’s Park Stadium at Inverness Sports Centre – achieved by nearly 3000 runners in 2019.
The Baxters Loch Ness Marathon is quite possibly one of the most stunning marathons in the world. With spectacular scenery, fantastic atmosphere and a truly memorable experience – it’s no wonder it was voted in the top 10 UK marathons by Runner’s World readers in 2016 and is on the bucket list for many runners from around the world. The Loch Ness Marathon follows a spectacular point-to-point route alongside world famous Loch Ness, starting in an atmospheric moorland setting and continues through stunning Highland scenery, taking you along the south-eastern shores of Loch Ness, across the River Ness, to finish in Inverness, capital city of the Highlands.

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.
