RUNNING KIT ESSENTIAL


Ask any runner and they’ll tell you the right kit is vital if you are going to enjoy the time you spend pounding the roads or hitting the trials. Eliot Lincoln outlines his running must-haves


Dri-Fit running top


The thing to bear in mind when it is raining and you are running is that you will get wet, so avoiding cotton is the first recommendation. Lightweight, breathable fabrics are a must, as is visibility. Dress for the temperature rather than the amount of rain. Nike produce affordable, quality gear. £19.99 (price can vary. See ‘Recommended vendors’)


Ron Hill gloves and hat


When it’s cold, the first thing to feel it are your extremities, so keeping your head and hands warm is hugely important. Ron Hill is one of the most affordable running brands around and you really can’t go wrong with these. £15.99, www.amazon.co.uk


1000 Mile socks➔ Nike Lunarglide+


For day-to-day training, I can’t recommend these enough. Without doubt the most comfortable neutral/cushioning training shoe I’ve ever run in. It’s important to buy a shoe that supports the way you run, so a professional fitting that matches your style is recommended. If a neutral/cushioning shoe suits you, then you can’t go wrong with these. £80, nikerunning.nike.com


For protecting my feet from my trainers, I use nothing but 1000 Mile socks. There are two key types, the single layer sock and the double layer. For people who may not have ‘broken in’ their feet, the dual layer ones are pretty much guaranteed to prevent blisters. The single layer socks are great for shorter runs too. £10, www.1000mile.co.uk
