Running is an essential part of our business but because we believe that running shoes have to be fitted, not just sold, we do not sell running shoes online. We offer a full gait assessment in our stores and a very wide range of shoes from most suppliers. We are confident that when you buy running shoes from us they will be the perfect fit for you.
Above all we want you to enjoy your sport and we will do anything we can do to help you achieve this.

OLD REIGATIAN RFC
Founded in the 1927/28 Season by the Old Boys of Reigate Grammar School, who had recently been introduced to the "Game for hooligans - played by gentlemen" when their School, along with Guildford RGS and Caterham G.S., as well as many others, replaced soccer in favour of rugby in the School's curriculum. This was an ingenious attempt to meet the requirements of an Education request from the Government of the time for an increase in the number of boys taking part in team sports. At one stroke the playing field which had provided only 22 players with an introduction to the "beautiful game" were utilised to give 30 boys the opportunity to legally fight with each other.
The "Think Tanks" of the 1920's had come up with another winner! In addition an alternative to "going down the mines" was available to young Welshmen, who now took to the role of schoolteachers and sought to introduce running and handling skills to the foreigners on the other side of Offas Dyke.
We start our 84th season, with four senior sides and with the impetus that our new Clbhouse will endenger an almost certain 5th side in 2012/13. The Club will thus have 20 teams playing in the Green & Blue colours by the commencement of our 85th year in 2012.
In my preface I drew attention to the need for the players to be involved in all aspects of the club's development. Naturally the main thrust is for another team, but we do need for as many as possible to get involved in the running of the Club not just the playing..

I, Olivia Furner am one of the coaches at Performance Elite and the face behind oliviafurner.com. I started my blog to share recipes, health and lifestyle ideas with friends, family and anyone who needed a place to find inspiration.
In June 2015 I was diagnosed with a medical condition called Endometriosis, which can cause varying symptoms from woman to woman. Since my diagnosis I’ve researched various treatments and methods, but what really resonated with me is nutrition. I’ve always eaten a relatively healthy diet, but I decided to play around with different ingredients and focus more on whole, fresh foods. Fast forward to the present day, and I’ve been astounded by the role nutrition has played in managing my symptoms.
Although it's a large part of my life, this isn't the main focus of my blog. I want to help show you, that it's possible to lead a healthy and active lifestyle regardless of who you are. Whether you're looking for advice on getting started, speedy weekday meals or some baking inspiration you've come to the right place.
