What is your favourite bit of running kit?


Mine used to be my shoes, but now I love my new running jacket. My son, of course, prefers his Liverpool training top. How about you?

I love all my running gear...I feel like a completely different person when I'm in my stuff....I do like my running jacket though but I cant keep it on for more than 10 minutes!!


Me.... :) x

That's very true. You can replace everything else, but there's only one Oldfloss!

Ha ha! Good point

I must confess I am very attached to my buff 😊

I ask with some trepidation: what's a buff?

OldflossAdministrator in reply to trogdelight

Best thing ever..stops drips...snow hail..pull it up over your nose..tuck it under your hat..wear it as a hat..list goes on...

When your buff gets soaked, and it can absorb no more water, it drops unceremoniously down and hits your nose with a thump. Wakes you up! Tee hee


My 5k t-shirt, I did the race 3 days after graduating c25k. Would be even nicer if it wasn't both too big and fluorescent yellow but I'm proud to have run that race with 1600 others only 9 weeks after W1D1 .

That's great.


I think like Mummycav I feel different the minute I put all my running gear on . It's as if you go into runner mode . If that makes sense 🤗

That's exactly it!! I feel more superior!! Haha x

Oh yes 😂😂


My favorite bit of running kit is my red parkrun 50 milestone T-Shirt. I’m very proud of it and went through such a personal transformation journey to earn it.

Next would be my running shorts, Garmin Forerunner 35 watch and running shoes.


I am in awe of everyone who's earnt those parkrun t-shirts. I've only run 5 and volunteered three times so far as I can't do it every week because of taking my youngest to football.

My wife takes my 7 year old Son to Rugby and I take my 10 year old Son to parkrun. He loves it, most of the time. I have to beat him out of the bed most Saturday mornings.

When the football season ends bring your Son to parkrun. He will have a lovely milestone 10 t-shirt in no time.

I should think so...amazing

Oh yes Damien I couldn't be without my garmin now 😂


My new shoes! I think the low drop has cured my knee issues! Hokas 😍


Your son is pretty cool! I like him 😎


I love my leggings with loads of pockets around the waistband and one down the side of each leg. This means I don’t need a bum bag for my phone.

Also my shock absorber bra which immediately put a stop to my back pain.

Oh and my Aftershokz bone conductor headphones so I can hear what’s going on around me.

I suppose I should say everting then as I also love my cap, which means my glasses get less wet when running. 😂

I’ve slowly got that kit that really works for me and makes my running easier.

I love those tights with the side slide pockets which expand to hold your running grub. Mine look like saddlebags when stuffed with goodies

My wireless earbuds, when they work.

Lovely that you & your son run together😊 My favourite bit is just getting out there 👣👣👣


I think I like my Ron Hill cargo run capri's best. They are wearing out though and no replacement is available. They have a great big expanding pocket across the back and two side slide pockets for cramming all sorts in. I prefer to travel light but on a longer run i have my phone, door key and food to tote. The 150 ml soft flasks fit down each leg if it's a run when drink is required

I am gutted that they've stopped making them and I can't find a pair anywhere
