Running Kit

Kit you should consider buying if taking up running.

Buy a pair of specialist running trainersRunning kit can be as simple or as complicated as you wish.  Running is generally an inexpensive sport but the cost can add up if you buy all the latest gear.

The one thing you must definitely have is a good pair of specialist running shoes that are chosen to suit your running style and running surface.  Good running shops will be able to analyse your gait and advise on the best fit and style of shoes.  To learn more, read our separate article on running shoes.

Also, ladies should remember to buy a good sports bra as this will make life much more comfortable whilst running.

For other equipment, make sure you dress for the weather – layering under a waterproof but breathable jacket is a good choice in winter.  If you are running alone we suggest you always carry a mobile phone in a pocket or on a belt in case of emergency.
