Winter really is a testing ground for runners. While the cold, dark evening runs are certainly character-building, any runner that tells you they prefer winter to summer is quite simply lying. The prospect of warmer workouts is exciting by itself, but the prospect of copping your all-new summer running gear is even better.

Luckily, there isn’t too much legwork to be done. Our selection below is tried and tested, with an equal focus on style and performance. We’ve picked out all of the items you need for a complete summer running kit. From the trainers to the tights and everything in between, this is your summer running gear.
