Lockdown 3.0: Despair not! You can book appointments with us at Launceston Cycles or virtually



Dearly beloved runners,


Searching for positives at the moment is like trying to find the perfect running shoe...


But in both cases, the Run Venture team can always be relied upon to pull a rabbit out of the hat... or maybe that should be a running shoe. 🤔


So, it is with great excitement that we can announce that we have been invited by the guys at Launceston Cycles to operate out of their brand new store at Pennygilliam Industrial Estate in Launceston.


While running stores are not seen as essential, bike shops are...


As of Thursday 7 January, you will be able to book and attend a dedicated shoe fitting appointment between 10am and 2pm from Monday to Saturday.


Due to logistics and Covid rules, it is imperative that you provide as much detail as possible when booking, including:


  • running shoe size

  • road or trail

  • current shoes

  • any injury or biomechanical issues

  • a contact number (we may call to discuss prior to the appointment)


This is because while we will hold some stock at Launceston Cycles, most of our gear will still be based at our other stores, as space is limited due to Covid 2m spacing rules.


We require the above information to make sure we fill up the van with options for you to try that day.


Appointments will be limited during this weird time but we will do our best to see you face-to-face... albeit 2 metres apart!


If you are rightly cautious and feel that even though you need new shoes, a face-to-face meeting is not for you, we are still offering virtual consultations and then we can post or deliver shoes to you to try on.


In short we will do all we can to get, and keep, you running.


The Run Venture brand was set up with ‘community’ at its heart. I’m part of it, so is the team, and so are you.


Hear endeth the lesson
