About Us

Malcolm Croft & Derek RipleyEstablished in October 1998 by owner-managers Malcolm Croft and Derek Ripley, Tortoise and the Hare Running Specialist was created to provide everything required of the runner, whether a complete beginner or an experienced competitive athlete.

All our staff are experienced runners, between us we have clocked up many miles of running both on and off road for pleasure, fitness and competition and despite the passing years we all are as enthusiastic (if somewhat slower) as ever. In addition, we have also worked in the running industry for many years and have built up an in-depth knowledge of running shoes and kit. We want to share our enthusiasm and knowledge with all you fellow runners whether you’re embarking on a first time trot round the block or your umpteenth ultra-distance run. We are also keen to hear of your own experiences – the good, the bad and the ugly!

Tortoise and the HareOur philosophy is to ensure time is taken, as much as is needed, to discuss your personal running goals, training schedule, take account of previous or current injuries and to offer sound technical advice and ensure you are fitted with best equipment for your individual requirements.
