Calea hails from Canada and joined the Run4It team as manager June 2022. A former collegiate footballer in USA, Calea turned her attentions to running to fill a gaping competitive void. Running quickly became a passion. The distances and challenges began to grow. From running a 10k race on the day her first child was born, to qualifying for the coveted Boston Marathon, only to miss out on a place by 1 second. The highs and lows are real and have led Calea down the path of middle-distance triathlons (70.3). Not one to be pigeon-holed, she has also completed a 60-mile ultramarathon and an 800km Switzerland to Germany cycle. In her 'spare' time, she can be found adventuring with her 3 active kids, wild swimming, run directing at the Junior Parkrun, and managing her Elevating Life Holistic Health Coaching business.
Lorna joined the Run4It Team in May 2023 after being self employed in the events industry for the previous decade. A long time hill and trail runner, Lorna has been a recent convert to road racing and duathlon and is a member of Triathlon Inverness. Lorna is a Hyrox and CrossFit competitor with a love of strength and endurance training. You will find Lorna in the gym, in the hills; running, walking or mountain biking and at Junior parkrun with her kids. Lorna also leads an active outdoor group in the Highlands, organising buggy running and bike trailer trekking for like minded parents.
Mark joined Run4It in July 2023. After 25 years in food service, food retail and economic development he decided to apply what he’d learned in business to his passion of getting active in the great outdoors.

Rachel joined the Run4It team in April 2022 and is currently studying Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Aberdeen.

He has a passion for boxing and loves the running that goes along with it! Due to an injury sustained through running he has been unable to run in recent times.

Nairn Road Runners are a small, friendly club, located in the coastal town of Nairn who cater for all running abilities.

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 Half 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.
For those working towards a shorter race distance, there's the popular the River Ness 10K and 5K - ideal for first timers, PB chasers and everyone in between.
A family friendly club based in the North of Scotland, Triathlon Inverness welcomes all.

Inverness Leisure is High Life Highland's largest sports, leisure and recreational facility in the Highlands - offering something for everyone all year round.

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.
