XMiles UK Ltd - XMiles.co.uk
Dorset based independent 'Endurance Sport Store' focused on improving performance through nutrition.
XMiles is looking to change the way runners and endurance sports enthusiasts think about nutrition and to promote and inform how improved nutrition from a healthy balanced diet to the correct race day nutrition can provide massive gains for all levels from being that 'running for the first time' to 'elite / top level club athletes' .
Alongside supporting local running events, XMiles has an established on-line presence with a great social community through social media channels and its 'Runners Profiles' posts giving an insight into how real runners and endurance sports athletes prepare and execute on race day.
During late 2015 and 2016 XMiles introduced its successful pop-up store and is now ready to take the experience to the next level through the #ontheroad campaign.
What's different about us?
We are more than just a store, we are part of the community and passionate about supporting events and about the products we stock and sell to our customers. We want to educate to provide a better foundation for achieving goals and improve all round nutritional wellbeing.
Who we are?
The business was started by England International Ultra Runner Anthony Clark in 2015. Anthony has been an active member in the running community since he first took up the sport in June 2007, taking him on a journey from a 16.5 stone ex smoker to achieving the honour of representing his country in 2016.
Through his own personal journey with running, improved nutrition, experiences and the passion to continually improve provided the desire to launch XMiles UK Ltd.
The past 12 months have been busy to say the least. Alongside working with local events and running clubs across Dorset, we launched our pop-up store and Anthony has been back studying to gain his qualification in Nutrition and Weight Management. Together with the steady growth of the online business has enabled Anthony to go full-time with the project from June 2016.
Primarily, we want to be the No.1 sports nutrition provider but, looking at the short term, this year we want to continue our growth and build long term relationships in the running community and education in nutrition focused improvements for runners.
To continue to grow and raise awareness, we need your support.
We are asking you join our journey and be part of our build to bring the XMiles Store #ontheroad. The concept is to create a mobile store that will be a hub at events where you can hang out, chat, meet others and grab something from our ranges.
The concept has been embraced by the community and we have already secured some great new brands such as 'Like The Wind Magazine' to be part of the journey.
We are running a flexible crowd funding campaign via crowdfunding.co.uk where you can make a pledge and receive a reward from XMiles.
