Here we are, February and all and we're well into our second month of Kinisi Running! 

The last three and a half months have been nothing short of a whirlwind. Initially, we had other big plans but with endless hurdles placed along the way we eventually started to lift our gaze, expand our vision and see things we hadn't noticed before. With that very first seed of creating our very own space planted, the beast took on a life of its own. 

Next minute we found ourselves drawing up plans, signing shop leases, incorporating a business and purchasing stock like we had planned this for months on end. The first plans of the interior design were drawn up at the beginning of November by our biggest supporter, amazing friend, best architect known to us and only platinum loyalty member, Pete from Open Architecture. We had loose plans of opening by Christmas/ New Year and while this was ambitious for obvious reasons, Pete kept pushing along, roping in Nick from Form Joinery and our brand new landlords from Willowridge showed up and made things happen. The amount of crazy eyerolls we received when people looked at the empty space, white walls and lack of a ceiling when we told them with a big excited smile that we're pushing for opening at the beginning of the year was priceless.

The rest is history as they say. With so many amazing friends and supporters of this project getting together we somehow managed to open those doors on the morning of the 1st of January 2024 and here we are: proud to be providing a space for all things running. A space where the running community can get together, drink coffee, find running buddies and get raging support for the crazy missions they are planning for the weekend. Yes I'm looking at you!

But, ultimately, this is a thank you note. We want to say thank you to absolutely everybody: we could not have done it without you. Whether you come to the shop to grab some gear, drink coffee and chat about running, show up for group runs, provide us with stock, helped put together the fit-out, doubted our ability of pulling this off, you name it. Somehow you have all become a part of Kinisi Running and we love you for it.

Thank you for joining the movement. We're stoked to have you all along for the ride.

Ian, Jane and Tilly
