OUR STORY

For the runners and riders, built on connection and adventure. 

A shared love of the outdoors and a desire for more conversations, PAU is about bringing people together through the things they love, and an appreciation for this place we call home. 

COMMITTED TO COMMUNITY

From community events & initiatives to supporting grass-roots projects.

PAU is committed to making the running and riding worlds more accessible.

THERE’S A LOT GOING ON AT PAU

RUN & RIDE

For the runners and the riders, we have our online store which is home to the best brands out there. Running shoes, first bikes, all the gear and plenty of kit, to support you wherever you are in your journey.

We have three stores around Staffordshire and Cheshire where you can try it all on for size and get expert advice from our team of coaches, PTs, and trainers.


THE OUTLET

The kit you love at a price you’ll love even more.

Here you’ll find past season kit, at a really nice price. We know that running and riding can be expensive hobbies, and a discount can be a big help.

All our stock is still top quality gear and in perfect condition, it’s just perhaps a colour from a season gone by, or something that isn’t on our shelves in-store right now.

Our goal is to make ‘getting out there’ as accessible as possible. It doesn’t have to cost the earth!


PAU CAFE

Home to our events and right next to our Trentham flagship. It’s the hub for our runners post-parkrun, and a space for our community to gather and connect, serving proper coffee and nutritious food. Visit us if you’re passing or come and make the trip, and book in for our comedy nights, pro athlete talks, and brand showcase events.


ADVENTURE

We love the outdoors and we want you to, too. Adventure is at the heart of everything we do, whether that’s discovering a new trail or discovering running for the first time. Discover your next adventure and book one of our stays in Wales if you want to take your journey further – and see our bridge!


EXPEDITIONS

Organising expeditions for over 20 years, and with no signs of stopping. We create and lead DofE experiences across the UK (and beyond) so that you can set your sights on bigger adventures and grab the skills to go with it. We work with schools and private groups, with plenty planned for the future.


PROJECT PAU

Supporting the next generation of cyclists through our fully funded programme. Project PAU inspires and coaches young riders in partnership with Clancy Briggs, offering world-class training and guidance for their journey into the sport. 

Team PAU is our fully funded junior cycling team for our best performing riders in the programme. 


PARKRUN

Set in the gorgeous grounds of Trentham Gardens, with all parkrunners getting free access for the event. With hundreds of runners every week, a sense of community and camaraderie, once you run, we are sure you will be back. 


OUR JOURNAL

Our hub for advice on adventure, supporting you to get outdoors. From gear advice to hints and tips, guest blogs from pro athletes and guides to ease you into the sports, explore the journal and see where your next journey will take you.
