Embrace the Run: Gear Up for Running Season with Active Truth

Running season is upon us, and Active Truth is here to ensure you're equipped with the best. Whether you're lining up for your first 5K or challenging yourself with a marathon, the right running activewear is essential to enhance your performance.

What is Running Gear + Running Activewear?

Running activewear is specially designed clothing and accessories intended to enhance the performance and comfort of runners. Unlike regular activewear, which might be suitable for various sports and fitness activities, running activewear is tailored to meet the unique demands of running. This includes features such as moisture-wicking fabrics to keep you dry, breathable materials for temperature regulation, and ergonomic designs that reduce chafing and enhance freedom of movement.

Why Do You Need Running Gear + Activewear?

Investing in running gear offers numerous benefits that contribute to a more enjoyable run. High-quality running activewear supports improved circulation and muscle support, helping to reduce fatigue and enhance recovery times. The right gear also provides critical support to joints and muscles, minimizing the risk of injuries. Additionally, the breathable and moisture-wicking properties of these materials keep you comfortable by regulating body temperature and preventing excessive sweating. By ensuring you feel supported and comfortable, running activewear helps you focus on your performance and reach your fitness goals more efficiently.

The Running Gear Starter-Pack

Ready to run? Having the right running activewear is crucial. Essential items include:
  • - Running shorts or tights, which offer flexibility and breathability. The multiple pockets in our Running Tights are great for holding your keys, gels and phone with no bounce.
  • - A good running sports bra for  necessary support and comfort.
  • - Moisture-wicking running tops to keep you dry
  • - Quality running socks to reduce blisters when running.
  • - A pair of high-quality running shoes tailored to your foot type and running style.

At Active Truth, we recommend our top picks, including our versatile running shorts, supportive sports bras, and lightweight, breathable tops, all designed to enhance your running experience.
