Why did we start Runderwear™?

Posted on

 

Jamie and I met at Loughborough University. We were put on the same corridor in our Halls and instantly became friends as we were incredibly enthusiastic about sport. I was a runner and at the time Jamie played most sports. 

After university Jamie started to run more and did an ironman in the UK. We trained together and to prepare Jamie went off to do the New York Marathon. Whilst there he realised he had great technical clothing but was wearing his usual underwear.  He ended up looking around the expo and all he could find was a pair of Large Womens Hot Pants! Not ideal, but the only option. 

When he got back he said to me we need to find some really good running underwear. We looked around and tried a few things but nothing was perfect. So we decided to make our own. 

This is a business built on passion so we were in no rush. 2 years of trialling at the running club we belong to began. Different fabrics, styles and fits were tried until we found the perfect formula that all our fellow runners loved. Runderwear™. 

We think that running underwear is a seriously important part of the kit bag that runners haven't had the opportunity to have. We constantly innovate to become the best sports underwear brand in the world.

 

Healthy regards

Runderwear Long Boxer

Excellent product

The Anti Blister Low-Rise Running Sock

Best Socks for Trail Running

Wore a pair during Oman Desert Marathon, only changing to a clean pair on day 5. No excessive sweating (even with the double layer) and no blister even after wearing them for almost 100km in very hot (above 40C) running condition and soft sand.
Also that double-layer gives an extra cushioning making them very comfortable for long runs on rocky trails.

Awesome Base Layer recommended for training in fresh to very cold environment

Tested the baselayer while running for 4 hours by -10C with only 1 extra layer to protect me from the wind and it kept me warm all the way. I also like to wear it for my early morning running session in the fresh Dubai winter and I don't feel to warm as it is very breathable and wicks moisture.

Perfect Baselayer

Garment material is flawless and keeps ur body warm in cold morning runs. Fit is also as per normal standards. A perfect addition to my running gear.
