Likeys have closed


The Frome and Brecon trail running and outdoor independant specialist retailer have signed off with a "support your local specialist retailers or there will be no-one left to provide advice and fitting services" comment on facebook. Its a sad day to see such a lovely bunch of guys go out of business and we wish Martin and all the staff good luck in their future endeavours.

This is the third blog that we have done recently as local outdoor retailers have folded, White Water Consultancy and Baileys being the other recent casualties. As with our watersports and bushcraft departments we hope that our outdoor, trail running and mountain marathon ranges can fill that gap for all South Wales and South West Englands enthusiasts who like to choose quality product in an environment of friendly unbiased advice. A large proportion of our staff are trail, fell and ultra runners and also include members of the Long Distance Walkers Association and can all provide a relaxed personalized fitting service for all the kit you could need. We select our range of trail shoes, hydration packs, race vests, etc based on our knowledge of product and experience of the outdoors as opposed to an accountant only interested in profit margin. We test the kit and have demo days, in association with many of the top brands, that everyone can get involved with (often in association with local ultra running specialists Run, Walk, Crawl who also add their huge wealth of expertise).

If you want to try on running products from great brands such as Ultimate Direction, Inov8, Scott, Raidlight, La Sportiva, VJ, Montane, Salomon and many more then we are the place to come. Complement these brands with our lightweight outdoor ranges from the likes of Arc'teryx, Patagonia, Rab, Lightwave, Leki, Black Diamond, Terra Nova, Silva, Petzl and Scarpa and our ability to help you select and be fitted for the right product for you makes our store a must visit.

We attend lots of trail running events and see people that have bought kit online and end up with bruised and rubbed backs, feet and waists from ill-fitting choices. We also see people with kit that should fit them but due to a lack of advice from buying online or in a store with inexperienced staff they don't know how to wear their kit correctly. You can spend a lot of money entering trail and ultra events, don't end up dropping out by not getting your kit properly fitted and adjusted. We're here to help.
