CAREERS

We are looking for talented individuals to join our committed, hard-working team.

Although the team is relatively small, every member lives and breathes the brand, thus contributing to the outstanding results we continue to achieve in a competitive market place.

We have two working hubs in the UK; one in Crook, County Durham, a muddy stride away from where the company was born in 2003, and the other in Staveley, at the epicentre of the Lake District trail running scene.

In 2021 we were awarded the ‘We Invest in People, Standard Accreditation’. This recognises the principles and practices we have in place to support our team members and make work a better place for all.
