Running essentials guide

One of the keys to performing or training to the best of your ability is the comfort and convenience of the clothing that you wear and the kit you have. The items recommended below cover a broad spectrum of the kind of items that can make your training sessions more enjoyable.

Some of our stores offer a free gait analysis service. Using this service a member of our trained staff will take a digital video recording of you walking and/or running on a treadmill in-store. This footage will be carefully analysed to reveal your individual characteristics and find the perfect footwear for you. See our store pages for details.
