• Buy the Salomon Soft Flask for £8.49 at Amazon No need to take a hydration pack for a shorter run, the Salomon Soft Flask will do just fine.

• Buy the Camelbak Dart Hydration Backpack for £58.17 at Amazon Especially if you go for a longer run, it is good to take some water with you and hydration backpacks are more convenient to carry than those circular water bottles that can't hold much water anyway.

On top of excellent moisture and sweat management, the Swiftwick Maxus also provides comfort with its plush footbed that sort of extends the cushioning of your shoes, making landing even softer and less impactful.

You'll need a lightweight pair of running shoes with a breathable upper, some fast-wicking running socks, loose-fitted running shorts, a short sleeve running top (or running vest) and potentially a hydration running backpack.

Its lightweight design combines sweat-wicking technology, mesh side panels and an internal sweatband for comfort as you run.
