Best running gear for women

Here at half marathon girl, we want you to be able to spend more time enjoying your run and less time searching for that elusive perfect piece of kit.

We’ve done the research, and will review and recommend our very favorite running gear for women to you.

We’re open to suggestions too, so let us know if there’s something you’d like us to cover.

We’ll be reviewing:


Shoes, glorious shoes! A girl can never have too many. Are you looking for trail shoes? A neutral jogger? Racing flats? We’ve got you sorted.

We’ll find the prettiest and most comfortable tops. Particularly ones with Em’s favorite feature: thumb holes!

Read all about skirts here, and a thorough review of available skirts here.


Can’t find a decent sports bra? Want to know the deal about bamboo fiber knickers? Look no further.

Wet weather gear

‘Cos we all know there is no such thing as bad weather for running, only bad gear!
