WE are fortunate that our sport is brimming with innovation, expertise and creativity, that we are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing between old classics and cutting edge technology in the world of clothing and gadgets geared to make us move faster.

But how to choose? That’s where we come in. Here at AW HQ, we have pooled our decades of experience, our insider knowledge and unbiased opinion to come up with the ultimate list of everything you will ever need in athletics. Find out what’s on it over the next 10 pages...

Asics Gel DS Trainer 21 (£115.00

ONE of our all-time favourite running shoes. They strike the perfect balance of being lightweight but with enough support and have a great fit. Perfect for speed sessions and taking vital minutes off your marathon time.

From Last to First: A long-distance runner’s journey from failure to success by Charlie Spedding (£8.99

WE’RE of the opinion you can never have too many running books and this should be included in any collection. It outlines a simple, logical and effective way to improve your running and get the best out of yourself. What more could you ask for?

Xempo Running T-shirt (£23.00

DESIGNED by runners, for runners, this clothing range has all the technical qualities you’d expect from a specialist brand — the top is lightweight, comfortable and feels brilliant to run in —but comes in ranges that are colour-coded to show off your PB.

Hilly TwinSkin socks (£11.00

YOU can’t beat the feeling of a new pair of running socks and these from Hilly (founded by the legendary Dr Ron Hill) are the ones we go back to time and again. They are moisture-wicking and feature the ultimate anti-blister double layer that absorbs friction.
