The ultimate 2020 Christmas gift guide for beginner runners...
When you’re starting out, you don’t need much kit. In fact, the gym-free, equipment-light demands of running are one of its biggest draws (that is, until you get seduced by the fit kit). So, if you’re shopping for novices, stick to the basics: shoes, bra, leggings, sweatshirt, headphones – and a Women’s Running subscription of course…
Not what you’re looking for? Check out our other gift guides:

For the best treat a runner could want, whatever their level, Women’s Running is your go-to running coach. It’s packed with advice and motivation to help you run your best and enjoy every step, and our cover stars are real runners, not models. The gift that keeps on giving!
2. ZAAZEE Alicia sports bra | £45
It’s supportive, breathable, sweat wicking and quick drying. It’s metal free, has no irritating labels, is made in the UK and comes in black, lilac, and a black and white pattern. The Alicia has push-up pads (removable) and looks amazing, so it’s sure to become a favourite in your knicker drawer.
3. THIS MUM RUNS organic sweater | £42
The new ‘Printed For You’ range means you can pick the garment, slogan and colour you want. These mid-weight premium sweatshirts are made with organic cotton and recycled polyester, and are Fairwear certified. Women’s Running readers can save 10% when using the code WOMENSRUNNING10.
5. LUCY LOCKET LOVES Cosmic Storm active leggings | £33
We can’t remember the number of times we’ve fallen prey to fall-downy, itchy, bad-pocket leggings, but these ones are winners. All LLL leggings have a superelastic high waist band and we love the design on these Cosmic ones. You can get an exclusive 10% off with this Women’s Running code: WRXMAS10.
7. OOFOS OOriginal | £45
The OOFOS story begins with the OOriginal Sandal. This combination of sleek design and revolutionary OOfoam™ recovery technology lays the groundwork for all future styles and models. This is a favourite among runners who crave that much-needed comfort while recovering after a tough training session or race.
