What running clothes should I buy?
Well, that depends on personal preference really, as well as the weather and trail conditions that you plan to be running in. For summer runs, think shorts and a tee and a decent pair of running shoes. When dressing to go out for a run in the winter, pants or tights and a tee with a soft shell jacket should suffice. However, remember you are likely to warm up once you get moving, so dress down or wear layers that can easily be removed. The clothing choices that you make can determine your performance when out on a run, so have a look at our guide below for what is included in this range,

What is moisture- wicking?
Unlike cotton which gets wet an stays wet, a material that has moisture wicking properties will ‘wick’ sweat and moisture away from your skin, helping to regulate your core temperature. This is particularly important when doing any high output cardio activity, such as running and is often a feature of clothes designed for the sport.
What are compression tights and why should I wear them?
Compression tights are able to assist in blood circulation, resulting in your muscles repairing quicker. They work by targeting the key areas and muscle groups that are under strain when you are running. They can also help to prevent cramps by decreasing the build-up of lactic acid. Lastly, they reduce muscle vibration when you are running, helping your legs to feel fresher quicker.
How should I care for my running clothes?
The moisture-wicking material that is regularly used for running clothes requires a little bit more maintenance than everyday wear, and you should pay extra care to look after your running clothes. Follow our tips below for keeping your new running gear at peak condition:
- Hang the clothes up after your run instead of tossing them straight into the laundry basket
- Wash technical items in a cool wash only
- Avoid fabric softener
- Wash at a cool temperature only
As always, check the individual care label on your garment before washing.
Is there anything else I need to remember?
Always, remember if you are running early in the morning or late at night, you need to wear something with is reflective or illuminating, such as a wristband or reflective vest, to ensure that cars can see you in the dark. Also, do not forget to protect your extremities, wear a lightweight, breathable pair of gloves during cold-weather runs.
