What should I wear for running?

This obviously very much depends on the weather! During the summer months a vest or T-shirt and a comfortable pair of shorts should be fine. Opt for technical fabric that wicks the sweat away from your skin over cotton. In the winter it’s worth investing in a waterproof jacket, some longer running tights and some high-viz gear so that you can stay warm and safe. Ladies, you may want to buy a good sports bra for extra support and comfort.
