Dark mornings, dark nights and freezing temperatures with rain, sleet, snow and gusty winds can only mean one thing – yes, it's marathon training season!
If you are one of the thousands of motivated individuals who’ve signed-up to take part in the London Marathon, or any other UK marathon taking place in Spring, you’ll have noticed that the 12-24 week training plan (depending on your level of fitness and experience) conveniently takes place during our winter!
Unless you’ve booked a training holiday to escape to warmer climes, the chances are you’ll be pounding the streets and putting in the mileage during our toughest season, so here are a few kit ideas on how to keep you warm, protected and running.
The Elements Top £34
This body-fit baselayer uses non-pilling fabric which means you can wash and wear it time and time again without losing the amazing soft, supple feel of the fabric. It wicks, breathes and dries super- fast so you can train in ultimate comfort. The reflective detailing adds the final touch to this extremely comfortable top.
The Business Legging £69
Now these really are the business. We've used our favourite non-pilling breathable jersey fabric and incorporated contrast mesh calf panels to circulate air around those hard working legs. Our signature wide waistband tops the overall style so you’ll feel nice and comfortable when you’re running through the city.
The No Bother Pant £69
Perfect for your warm-up or warm-down these pants layer nicely over your running shorts or leggings and will help maintain an ambient temperature. The soft technical fabric is brushed so it feels great against your skin and it's designed to wick, breathe and dry nice and quickly. Beware, they're so comfortable you may not want to take them off.
The North West Revenge Hoodie £65
Perfect for layering, this is a fully functional piece of performance kit which happens to feel amazingly soft. The technical fabric is brushed so it feels great against your skin and it wicks and breathes. The hood includes mesh panels so you can still hear when you're out and about and the distinct reflective branding will certainly get you seen.
The Air Head Beanie £29
And to top off your winter wardrobe, try our Merino wool Air Head Beanie which offers excellent temperature regulation and moisture management, so you’ll stay comfortable through-out high-intensity training.
