LET'S RUN TOGETHER

In these strange times it's more important than ever to stick together, albeit not physically. At Runners Need, we're dedicated to supporting our running community whether that be through Run Clubs, special offers or social media. On this page you'll find everything you need to keep fit during the lockdown, from the kit to the company, and we're constantly updating it so make sure you keep checking in for the latest blogs, events and advice. Let's run solo together.


EXERCISE KIT

Whether you're just starting your fitness journey, planning your one-a-days or trying out some home workouts, we've got all the kit you'll need. Our collection has the best running shoes, clothing, smart watches, wireless headphones and injury and recovery accessories you'll need to thrive in lockdown. Getting out or staying in, we have you covered.


STRAVA RUN CLUBS

5K, 10K or just OK, for us it's not how far you run that matters, it's that you lace-up, step-out and just go running. 

We might not be able to run together for the next few weeks, but that won’t stop us from getting those miles in! Join us by sharing your solo runs with the club — and see what the rest of the club is up to!


BLOGS

If you're after some hints and tips or just inspiration to get you through this period, our blogs are a great place to start. For home training, our core workouts and injury prevention blogs feature video demonstrations of simple exercises you can do at home to stay in shape and prevent injuries. For some inspiration to keep on running, Cathy and Mollie's marathon training diary follows their journies to the big day, including how they're navigating the postponement and social distancing. The Asics Sound Mind Sound Body programme focuses on staying on top of your physical and mental health during this tough time. They will all be updated regularly so make sure you keep checking in.
