“I have had the pleasure of leading the team managing our relationship with Kukri for the last 3 years. The Kukri team has consistently been exceptional in supporting our evolving and expanding clothing needs across the whole of the England Athletics family, including England teams, talent programmes, coaches, officials, staff, clubs and most recently RunTogether groups. They have always been receptive to new ideas and ways of working whilst maintaining superb attention to detail and account management” Andy Anstey, Head of Business development at England Athletics.
“Kukri Sports are extremely honoured to be working with England Athletics. It a great testament to what we can do as a business, by working in all areas of the organisation and developing the kit requirements specific to each arm. An exciting aspect has been to be able to work with athletes of all abilities and ages, being able to provide athletics kit to a beginner, whether a part of Run Together or an affiliated club, or an elite athlete competing internationally. It is great to see Kukri providing that opportunity to performance and represent!” Josh Beal, Sales Director at Kukri Sports.
