If you're after some new running kit, now's the time to splash out! Here's how you can take advantage of the Black Friday running deals...
Let’s face it: there’s a lot of rubbish out there in the Black Friday sales. It can be difficult to know what to spend your money on amid all the noise, and you can easily end up buying things that you don’t need just for the sake of a shiny deal. That’s why we’ve curated this list of our year-round running faves that just so happen to have been given the Black Friday treatment. Tried and tested by the Women’s Running team, here are the discounts to take advantage of…
INOV-8 Terraultra G 270 shoes | £131
These are a firm favourite for the trail runners among us at Women’s Running. They’re super comfortable and springy, featuring what’s been dubbed the World’s Toughest Grip. Usually £145, you can save yourself a buck or two if you make the most of inov-8’s Black Friday sale. For more information, check out our full review before you buy!
SWEATY BETTY Power Leggings | £56.25
Esther tried these leggings out for the first time this year and says she can finally understand why everyone raves about them. “The fit is fantastic – they don’t budge; the thigh pocket is great; they don’t dig in; the fabric is immense. I just love them, they’re worth every penny.” They won ‘Best Bottoms’ in our 2021 Product Awards – and Sweaty Betty are offering 25% off them and everything on their site with the code CHEERS until the 30th November.
POLAR Ignite 2 GPS fitness watch | £159.60
Holly’s been using this for her training recently, and it’s completely brilliant: here’s her full review. It has all the usual Polar tracking features, like mileage and heart rate, and can be hooked up to an app that offers personalised training advice. Polar are currently offering 20% off with the code POLARCYBER21 for the next week – hurry!
LULULEMON Run Times Bra | £44
Wonderfully supportive and available in a wide size range, the Run Times bra was tester Claire’s favourite of the year. “It fits beautifully with minimal bounce but doesn’t feel too tight or restricting and allows you to breathe,” she said in her review. If you winced at the £58 price point, now’s your chance: get it for just £44 now!
HOKA ONE ONE Rincon 2 shoes | £73.50
The lightweight Rincon is one of our favourite HOKA models – and at such a reasonable price. It’s perfect for road running and racing, with a responsive and featherlight rubber sole. It’s usually retailed at £105, but rumour has it HOKA will be knocking 30% off for Black Friday – sign up to their newsletter for early access. And if you want to hear more specs, check out Holly’s review of the latest Rincon release here.

BAM Enduro Leggings | £27.44
We love BAM’s bamboo clothing: it’s so soft and sculpting, and these leggings are a great sustainable alternative if you’re eco-conscious. The waistband is lovely and supportive, too, and you’ll be spoilt for choice with all the designs available. You can save yourself an extra 30% on all their gear at the moment as well as bagging yourself a pair of gorgeous bamboo socks with the code BFYAY.
RUNDERWEAR Running Hot Pants | £15
You can enjoy up to 50% off everything on the Runderwear site at the moment, but our top pick are these running hot pants. Our team of testers voted these pants the best underwear in our 2021 Women’s Running Awards. Chrissie said: “They are seamless which helps minimise chafing, the material is really soft and the fit is snug without being too tight.” Get your hands on a pair now for just £15.
EXOGUN DreamPro massage gun | £101
This is Holly’s current favourite for an at-home sports massage: the ExoGun is powerful, easy to use and is bound to help with run recovery. “I think it may even be the best massage gun I’ve tested so far,” she said in her full review. You can save a few pennies in the Black Friday sale now if you want to get your hands on one of these.
