There are many reasons to choose running for your workout, including stress relief, enhanced fitness levels, weight loss and training for a race. At Sweaty Betty, running is all about escaping to the great outdoors; enjoying a rare opportunity to focus the mind, discover new parts of the city or countryside, and challenge yourself to achieve new personal bests. From 5Ks to marathons, recovery runs to hill sprints, the reasons for lacing up your trainers and racking up the miles will vary from person to person – but all come back to an improved sense of health and vitality. Whether you choose to go solo or with friends, there is nothing like the strength you feel while running, nor the endorphin-fuelled high you'll enjoy long after your run.

what to look for

High-impact sports bras that provide effective support, reducing bounce while running.


Running trainers that are suited to your gait and foot type. View the trainer guide to find the perfect pair.


Technical fabrics across both tops and bottoms. Comfortable, sweat-wicking fabrics and anti-chafe, flatlocked seams will help you run further with ease.


Specifically-designed run socks to resist blisters and reduce friction inside your trainers during long-distance runs.


Compression running leggings are ideal when you want to reduce muscle fatigue and accelerate your recovery after a workout.


Get added functionality with headphone guides and built-in thumbholes on long-sleeved running tops.


Minimise distractions with practical run accessories like water bottles, media armbands, headbands and bumbags.

Feeling comfortable and supported during your run is essential, and that means a well-fitting sports bra, impact-reducing trainers and soft, anti-friction running clothes. Fabrics designed to regulate temperature will improve both comfort and performance, so opt for thermal, long-sleeved running tops in winter and sweat-wicking vests in summer. See Sweaty Betty's bra guide for help finding the right support for your individual shape and workout.
