Hi, I’m Callum and I work in the Farnham store and have been with Alton Sports for 2.5 years.
I enjoy running as a warm-up and recovery tool for before and after my weightlifting training and I prefer to do this on the treadmill or out on the country roads. My favourite shoes to wear are the Adidas Ultraboost 20’s. My favourite post run snack is a protein shake and my favourite distance to run is 5k!
Hi I’m Lucy and I work in the Eastleigh store, I have been with Alton Sports for nearly 2 years now.
I love running and couldn’t be without it! I enjoy the buzz of racing, getting a PB and the feeling of achievement knowing that all the effort you put in over those long training blocks was worth it. My favourite running shoes currently are the Saucony Endorphin speeds! But I am a Nike fan too. My favourite place to run is along the sea front during the summer months. My favourite post run snack has got to be sliced banana on toast with crunchy peanut butter! but I am a sucker for an ice cold can of coke too after a long run! My favourite distance to run is 10 miles, with the Great South Run being one of my favourite races.

My all time favourite place to run is the coastal trails at the Gower Peninsula! I also love a track race over in Watford!

Hi I’m Scott, I am the co-area manager and have been with Alton Sports for 3 years.
I love running and sport. I follow it a lot and love competing. I’m always down a local club or at an event to help runners out with showing off our fantastic gear and talking about our instore services. I love the freedom of running you can go pretty much anywhere you want in the world. My favourite brand to run in is Hoka, I’m currently using the Hoka Clifton Edge. I love Peak performance clothing too! My favourite place to run is the beach on the IOW. My favourite post run snack is malt loaf with jam and my favourite distance to race is 10 miles.
Hi I’m Richard. I’m Swedish, I have worked for Alton Sports at the Farnham store for 4.5 years.
I’m an active member of Hatch Warren Runners, where I´m amusingly referred to as the ´Speedy Swede´! I have been running for over 30 years, having started in my teens. I enjoy all distances from park runs to marathons. I have completed 27 marathons to date, the last one being in Paris. I love negative splits on a long run, even if I am 60 I can still do 19 min on the last 5k in a 30 k. I like to run at least 5 times per week either on the nearby track or in the beautiful countryside surrounding my home. My favourite place to run is the Tramway Blvd in Albuquerque and I enjoy running in the Adidas Adizero Adios and Adidas Boston. My favourite post run snack is a cappuccino!
Hi, I’m Chris and I’ve worked at Alton Sports for 4 years now.
I love running for my clubs; Vegan Runners and Stubbington Green Runners, and pushing my body to see what it’s able to do, either up massive hills or occasionally round and round in circles at the track! My current favourite shoes are the Karhu Ikoni and the Hoka Clifton, both great all rounders for mileage and speed sessions. My favourite places to run are normally wherever I can get to from my front door! My favourite distances to race are 5k and 10k road races, aswell as some 5 mile technical cross country courses. The best post-run snack is avocado and marmite on toast. Seriously, try it.

Hi my name is Toby Lambert, I am the Director of Alton Sports and I play an active role overseeing all branches.
For me running is life and there’s nothing I’d rather be doing than helping our customers enjoy their sport, whether they run or enjoy any of the other sports we cater for! A day without running for me is like not getting up in the morning or not brushing my teeth! It simply has to happen! So no matter what pace you run, I always say something is better than nothing! We as a team get out and test all the products we sell every day , whether it be kit for on the trails, on the road, on the track or out racing marathons, so rest assured when any of us see you in the shop we can offer you the best and most trusted help and advice !!
And if you see me about, join me for a run!
