Accelerate was conceived from a desire to find one running store where you could shop for everything running. A place you could count on getting the best service, knowledge and experience and a friendly approach to the sport od running. No one seemed to want to put it all together. So that's where the idea of Accelerate came from. Accelerate began by visiting events with a retail event store and with a website. Eventually the Sheffield store opened its doors in February 2009.

Accelerate is actively involved in the local running scene and in 2009 began the Gritstone Series - a number of established fell races, bringing them together as one series. 

The store grows by recommendation and draws runners from far and wide. We continue to look at ways of offering more.  Having teamed up with Accelerate Performance Centre, bio-mechanics assessment, soft tissue therapy treatment and podiatry is available at Accelerate.

Accelerate is Sheffield and the Peak’s Largest dedicated Running Store Road. Running, Fell and Trail, along with Adventure Racing are all covered in store. A wide choice of product is backed up with an unprecedented level of experience and running knowledge. At Accelerate we love our running, we would suggest it shows.

With around 2,000sqft of showroom Accelerate offers more than you would expect. The countries largest display of lightweight running back packs through to one of the most complete shoe fitting services you will find. ‘Total Foot Fit’ & Gait Analysis’ takes into account the length, width and shape of your foot. We also look at their alignment and then under video we review how the foot lands, moves and supports at mid-stance and then toe off

A large range of road shoes, for training and racing, is complemented by the areas largest selection of trail and fell shoes. We complement this with kit and gear suitable for high mountain and fell use, including mountain marathons. If you can find the product on this website it is also available in-store and at that price.

Accelerate also boasts:
