Gloucester Sports was established in 1982 as a specialist sports shop catering for a range of different sports. New owners Steve, Lofty and Rob took over the business in January 2009 and have turned it into the running specialist for Gloucester and the surrounding areas. We do also specialise in rugby and football and cater for various other sports, stocking a wide range of footwear, clothing and accessories.
We also do PRINTING on t-shirts, tops and almost all types of clothing. Prices depend on what you need printing, how big, how many colours and how quickly it needs to be done! We can do Stag and Hen Do t-shirts, together with team kits and one-off items, for an accurate quote pop in and see us.
As well as having our shop on Worcester Street, we take our mobile running shop to support many local events and races and have developed our online running web store.
Gloucester Sports offers the best choice in running shoes, sports nutrition, and women’s and men's running clothing, essential running accessories and much more. We don't have sales, but if you have a limited budget then we will always try to you find something suitable as we normally have certain shoes on offer! So whether you are running your first ever 5k or London marathon or anything in between, we have everything you will need to enjoy your run.
Gloucester Sports was the first shop in Gloucester to use video gait analysis to ensure that we put each individual in the correct footwear for their requirements. All shop staff are well-trained and highly knowledgeable about all aspects of running.
Running shoe selection can be confusing so we divide our running shoes ranging into supportive for controlling over pronation, neutral for a balanced foot motion, lightweight or racing flats for speed and performance and multi terrain for trail/uneven surface running. Our range of brands includes Adidas, Asics, Mizuno, Brooks, Nike, Saucony, New Balance, Puma and many others.
We offer a range of barefoot or natural motion running shoes. These are running shoe lower to the ground, have increased flexibility and less cushioning. Our trail running and natural motion footwear is ever expanding as the popularity grows, so if you want to discuss your biomechanical requirements with us then please come in.
We offer a large range of clothing and compression wear from a good selection of brands, together with a changing room in-store so that you can try before you buy.
Sports nutrition is key to running the longer miles. All staff at Gloucester Sports are well trained and experienced in the large selection available. We use and recommend brands such as SIS, High 5, cliff, nuun, sports beans and torq. Gels, sports sweets, energy bars and drinks are always in stock.
Steve is the store manager and carries out the majority of the gait analysis. He has a Masters in Sport and Exercise Science and spent five years working on behalf of Nike as a biomechanics and footwear specialist. A member of Gloucester AC, Steve runs and races at a competitive level, having won a UK Inter-Counties steeplechase title and eight regional titles, together with winning various local races including the May Hill Massacre, Chedworth 10, Cranham Boundary Chase, Berkeley 10km, Beacon 10km, Devil's Chimney Chase. Steve's PB's are 5km: 14.58 and 10km: 31.39
Lofty is the resident shop coach, having recently qualified for his UK athletics Level 3 coach award. Lofty has been running for almost 20 years on the local scene and has run just about every race in the county (and beyond)! Lofty has also ventured into the Ultra Running scene, so can give advice on all aspects of endurance running.
