Plan for all weathers
Taking on a challenge means more time outdoors, and thanks to the great British weather, that means being prepared for anything.
Avoid cotton materials, which absorb sweat and moisture and leave you feeling damp and heavy. Instead, look for items made from Polyester, Polypropylene or Nylon. These are all moisture-wicking and will keep you comfortable in all weather.
Running caps can be a great addition to your kit. Not only do they protect your face and eyes from the sun, sweat and rain - they also help to regulate your body temperature. Making them great for all seasons. Our partner attainruncap.co.uk donate 100% of their profits to CALM, so you can stay cool and save lives!
Newer isn’t always better
Don’t save your brand new trainers or gear for the day. To avoid those awkward chafes and blisters, wear it a few times when training to make sure it’s up to the challenge!
Don’t forget about the basics
The right bra, pants and socks can make all the difference. Think about what you will be most comfortable wearing, and make sure they are breathable and supportive.
