Who is Big G?

A 2.22 marathon runner back in Scotland, Big G came to South Africa and launched the country’s first specialist running store, The Sweat Shop, in 1977. South African athletes were finally introduced to the Nike and New Balance shoes they had only read about in magazines. In 1995 Big G established the Randburg Runner, which quickly became Johannesburg’s most popular running shop.

Big G has taken those 40 years of face-to-face experience with South African runners of all levels, from Parkrunner to Pentathlete, and invested them in this website, providing the personal guidance needed to choose the shoe that will work best for you.
