The best running tops in our 2020 Product Awards...

Best Running Top: Winner
ON Performance T£70

On stands out for superior style and quality, so we weren’t surprised to see it rise to the top of this category. Chrissie was impressed with the technical quality: “It’s so light I almost couldn’t feel I was wearing it. The length is good in the body and the arms and the  t is loose but not baggy. I like the breathable fabric, and it dried quickly. Great as a casual tee, especially in warm weather.”

Best Running Top: Best Value
PATAGONIA Capilene Cool Lightweight Shirt£35

We love Patagonia for all things outdoors, and this technical top offers value and great performance. Meg said: “The Capilene is a lightweight cooling top which allows you to stand out and be seen on your runs. I love how fast it dried. Scored highly for comfort and visibility, and it’s a great price, too.”

Best Running Top: Editor’s Choice
ZAAZEE Evangeline Fitness Tank£40

We can never get enough of Zaazee. Consistently great, female-considered design along with luxe fabrics means that every piece fits perfectly and works with your body. This new release is a case in point: a lovely long length, great cut and fabric, and performance is faultless. Hours and hours of happy summer running in this!
