Andy HyslopDirektor/ Unternehmensleitung
General Manager at Rock + Run
CEO at Rock + Run
We are Rock + Run, a rock climbing, mountaineering and outdoor equipment supplier based in the UK, providing specialist equipment for mountain enthusiasts.
Whether you're hiking up K2, on-siting your local boulder or going deep water soloing on Mallorca - we've for sure got just the right peace of equipment to help you achieve your mountaineering goals.
Since 2018, we're also active in Germany and offer great gear and expert advise on www.rockrun.de
Rock + Run was established in Ambleside, May 1983. We didn't know much about running a business in those early days but we did know that the technical equipment needs of climbers, runners and mountaineers were poorly catered for in the Lake District at that time. We thought about our customers and our own activities in the hills. By the end of the first year we came up with a slogan which attempted to encapsulate who we are and, the customers we were trying to reach.
"Specialist Equipment for Mountain Enthusiasts"
The same slogan still rings true for us today and is as relevant as was 35 years ago.
We've been involved in lots of creative projects in the mountains both personally and as a business. Individually, over the years, Rock + Run employees have climbed lots of new routes in the UK, made early repeats in Europe and USA, forced desperate boulder problems, broken mountain running records and generally been fully engaged with rocks, ice and mountains.
We're always on the lookout for talented individuals who love the outdoors, mountains and the gear that makes exploring them possible.
Having recently expanded to Germany with www.rockrun.de, we're especially interested in German native speakers to support our team in areas like site management, marketing, content management and customer support.
Sounds like just down your line? Get in touch, we'd love to hear from you!
