We Test Running Stuff

A group of experienced running, fitness and tech journalists, The Run Testers test kit for dozens of different publications. We cover everything from running shoes and GPS running watches to smartwatches, headphones, apparel and nutrition. Not to mention the latest wearable running tech. We bring all that testing together in easy to digest videos.

Nick Harris-Fry

Nick is a freelance journalist who works across a number of titles focussing on running gear and tech, including Coach, Live Science, Expert Reviews, Wareable and Get Sweat Go.

When not running he can be found looking after a baby and so not sleeping anywhere near as much as he should be.

Kieran Alger

A borderline-obsessed runner who loves a challenge over any distance from a mile to 100 miles. Kieran is closing in on 50 marathons, once finished top 100 at the Marathon des Sables and never lets anyone forget about it. He has also run the Thames from Source to Sea and recently ran 7 marathons in 7 days to test a watch battery life. Though he’s also failed two attempts to complete a tiny little hill race called the Lavaredo.

Kieran writes about running, tech, fitness, nutrition and health for Runner’s World, WIRED, Men’s Health, the Metro, Stuff, the Guardian and Men’s Fitness, among others. He’s got his own jingle on the Runner’s World podcast and – when there’s time – blogs at Manvmiles.co.uk.

Tom Wheatley

Tom is the editor of Get Sweat Go and has written about fitness and running for Red Bull, ShortList, Wareable and Vitality. When he’s not running he can be found working his way through the James Bond box set or sat in a pizza restaurant somewhere around the world.
