The essential new kit to get you running in comfort and style this season
Arc’teryx Accelerator Zip Neck top

Gore Air 2in1 shorts

These have an inner short to eliminate that problem and also creates a compression effect, which encourages even blood flow to help reduce muscle fatigue. Plus no-one will get an unintended eyeful, however acrobatic your stretching routine.
Brooks Ravenna 6 shoe
