Ronhill and Running Clothing FAQ
How long will it take for my item to arrive?
Delivery times vary depending on your chosen shipping method and the destination of your parcel. We aim to deliver orders between 2-4 working days.
How long does it take to despatch orders?
Orders are packed and shipped within 1-2 working days. During peak times and in other exceptional circumstances this may take longer. Business days are Monday through Friday (excluding holidays).
I am keen to get my order as soon as possible, what do I need to do get my order next day?
Express shipment costs a little more and all we ask is that you ensure you place your order before 13.00 (Mon-Fri) so it can be delivered delivered the following business day. This is so we can make sure it is packed and ready for our next-day couriers collection slot, any later and we won’t have time to prepare your order before they arrive. Where possible we would ask that you choose standard shipping to reduce environmental impact. We will share your telephone number and email address with our shipping partner who may contact you to arrange a delivery time. Please note that weather, public holidays, peak shipping seasons and incorrect delivery information can delay the shipment of your order. Please also note that some postcodes are not applicable for express shipment, these are outlined on our delivery page and below. Ron Hill are unfortunately unable to control or reimburse issues related to any of the above. But we have taken great care to work with only the best courier partners to ensure that your order makes its way to you as smoothly/quickly as possible.

Who is Ron Hill?
Dr. Ron Hill M.B.E. is one of the world-class distance runners of his generation. Ron excelled at marathon distance running and was the first Briton to win the Boston Marathon. This, at the time, was a world record time (when it stood) of 2:08:29. Later in the same year (1970) Ron went on to win Commonwealth Gold in the Games staged in Edinburgh.
Ron had a unique combination of first hand running knowledge with a career as a textile chemist. Ron was the first person to use synthetic fabrics in sportswear and invented a lot of the fabrics that today’s latest products are modern generations of.
This passion and enthusiasm to improve sportswear lead Ron to set up Ron Hill Sports on 9th September 1970.
