NOTTINGHAM, England, March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
The lighter nights and brighter days of spring often mean that runners will begin to look at going on longer runs, especially if in training for a marathon or charity run. A steady increase of distance and gradient is perhaps the best way to achieve results from training, however, having the right running gear can also help to improve performance.
Having a pair of responsive and supportive running shoes, coupled with clothing that helps to wick away sweat, plays a big role in increasing running time and distance. If a runner is uncomfortable they will not run for as long or push themselves as much as a runner who is.
Running brand Karrimor, available at SportsDirect.com, have incorporated the latest technologies in both their running shoes and clothing lines to ensure that runners and athletes get the most out of training.
Karrimor's range of running shoes include the Duma and D30 models which all aim to provide the athlete with a flexible and comfortable running experience. The Duma running shoes start from £39.99 and feature a flexible, waffle print sole, coupled with mesh detailing for breathability and a moisture wicking insole, to avoid bad odours and discomfort.
The D30s start from £60.00,and benefit from shock absorption and gel technology to lessen the impact on hard surfaces. They also feature underfoot support torsion control, a lightweight construction and a clutch counter to the heel for improved stability and control which is advantageous when runners are picking up speed and changing direction often.
Within the Karrimor clothing range is their line of XLite running tights and tops that aim to make running easier and more enjoyable, in a bid to help the runner run for longer. The XLite technology works to produce a lightweight item, without sacrificing the durability or breathability which are both major qualities in running clothing. The XLite running t-shirts and shorts start from £5.00, with some also incorporating reflective detailing fro higher visibility.
