Phew! Over 37,000 runners took to the streets in the London marathon last month, and now everyone is dusting off their running shoes and pounding down local streets. We’ve got some passionate runners in the Premier team too! Hannah has been racing round the office as part of her training to take part in a 10k race later this month and Trevor can often be seen jogging out of Premier House after work – a regular at the London Marathon, he has raised money for Cancer Research and The Willow Foundation, and his personal best is a rather speedy 3 hours and 48 minutes. Speedy Trevor!
So, we asked our Premier running experts to share their top running products and here they are: Water bottles, pedometers and lots of other lovely running things.
First up is our Gildan Heavy T-Shirt, 100% cotton and available in many colours, this item is perfect to wear when you’re racing down the roads. Plus you can have a different colour for every day of the week!
The runner up is our Heavy Brushed Cotton Cap. With its adjustable Velcro strap and strong, sturdy crown it is the perfect running companion. A must have for those sunny days!
Taking the bronze is our Protein Shaker. You will need it to mix up all the protein shakes you’ll be making to revive those sore muscles.
In fourth place we have our trusty Water Bottles, because what’s a runner without their own branded water bottle? Here is a pick of our favourite three.
And last but not least, what’s a running kit without a Pedometer? Excellent for clocking up all those miles you’ll be running.
There you have it, Premier’s running essentials. If we’ve inspired you to get going, you can find lots of information about races and marathons on these great sites – runbritain.co.uk and runnersworld.co.uk and if you’d like to sponsor our Hannah, who is raising money for Wipe Away Those Tears, here is her just giving page.
