An often overlooked part of running, yet a highly important component, which when the right decision is made, contributes to a greater experience along with enjoyment and comfort. Choosing the right piece of clothing to suit your needs can be confusing and complex thought. We can talk you through all the pros and cons of individual items and the purpose they serve, working with you to narrow down an array of items to a fit for purpose bunch which you can then choose your favourites from.
Scotts Summer clothing range
Scott has been in our store for a number of years, especially with their shoes. In recent years they have become ever more present and prominent. During this time Scott has produced some great pieces of kit, which we feel is both functional and comfortable. Their term 'No Shortcuts' really some up the research and testing that goes into their garments.

Windproof VS waterproof
A battle through the ages, well maybe not that long but a very interesting conundrum non the less. Both will keep the wind off yet a windproof will only hold water off for a short period, whilst our waterproofs keep us dry in harsher conditions. While each has their pros it can be difficult to decide which to take.

An essential to your running wardrobe, a good top is lightweight, highly breathable and sweat-wicking. If you think ahead when adding to your wardrobe the summer tee turns into a winter baselayer. Our aim over the next few years is to only stock clothing made with recycled content. See all our Tops and Tees here
Finding the right shorts is a dream come true. The wrong pair can lead to no end of uncomfortable runs. When you find the right pair it like you are hardly wearing them. Here at Accelerate, we have a wide range of different models and styles. See all our Shorts here
Waterproof, windproof, thermal. They keep us warm and dry. Many of us need them to be tough others, to be lightweight, some need both. That's why it is important for us to test them and stock a range of jackets to fit different needs. See all our Jackets here
Tights, normally saved for the winter months when there is frost on the ground and a nip in the air. So whether you are after them for warming up before a race or cold snowy winter runs here at Accelerate we have a range to fit your needs. See all our Tights and Trouser here.
Often an overlooked part of your running wardrobe but a good pair of running socks can transform your running experience. Lightweight or cushioned, no show or crew length, strippy or plain. We have plenty to choose from. See all our Socks here
Another winter essential is a hat and gloves, perfect for trapping in heat and keeping your extremities nice and toasty. Ranging from super warm thermal hats to thin lightweight gloves we will have something you are looking for. See all our Hats, Gloves and Wraps here
After running shoes the next most essential item for women is a sports bra. They should be supportive during exercise without causing any discomfort and fitted right for you. See all our Underwear and Sports Bra's here
Compression socks are always popular. They offer a nice tight fit around the foot with the benefit of compression. Some compression socks fully cover the calf to help stabilise the muscle, to increase blood flow and aid recovery - can be very helpful for sore calves, especially if you sleep in them.
