Runderwear™ goes endurance riding!

Posted on
When we started our Runderwear™ our aim was to keep all runners chafe free and comfortable when they ran.  It has been amazing to us just how many different sports we have also helped along the way! One of the sports we consistently hear about how much Runderwear™ benefits them is long-distance endurance riding.
Here at Runderwear™ we are happy to announce we are supporting two endurance riders, Jill Thorburn and Gaynor Jones from the Cheshire Endurance Great Britain group. Both riders regularly complete in endurance riding events.
Jill has ridden up to 45km on her young horse, Leesview Tobias, known as Toby to his friends. In his first season Toby had an amazing season achieving 5 grade ones and 3 grade twos in his novice season. He was well and truly in the lead in the National Novice Trophy when sadly he had an accident in the field and had to cut short his season.
After a good rest Toby has come back fit and well and has successfully completed eight rides over this season with a plan to complete another two before the winter comes and he focuses on his jumping which he loves. One of his highlights of the season has been that for the second year in a row Toby was part of the winning Inter-regional team achieving a convincing victory at Cirencester.
Jill has reported that she will wear no other underwear since she first found out about Runderwear™. ‘We spend a lot of time swapping tips to reduce chaffing and talking wicking qualities of fabric in the endurance world as you can imagine. I will never wear any others since finding out how comfortable Runderwear™ are even over long distances. I have told all my friends they too can be more comfortable if they chose Runderwear™.
Gaynor has a beautiful horse, Orlando who has had a fantastic season. These two have had a wonderful partnership over the years and Orlando has matured into a brilliant endurance horse. Gaynor is so proud that he won 146km race ride earlier this year. He has also successfully completed 96km and 82km Competitive Endurance rides was 5th in the ride where he also competed for the winning North west of England team. This winning partnership are about to compete in their first FEI 1* 80km race this weekend at Euston Park. Gaynor will be wearing her Runderwear™ bra top and knickers so will only need to be concerned with the welfare of her horse and not herself to hopefully get round successfully.  ‘Since I discovered the comfort of Runderwear™ on long rides I would never consider using anything else’.

These socks are the best running socks I have ever purchased

Good service, product is fit for purpose

Service is great, and the boxer shorts are good for running and so the job they are designed for. Little disappointed that they are not ethically sourced, they have a cheapish feel to them which was a surprise.

Thank you for your feedback Duncan. Runderwear's range of seamless underwear has sustainability benefits over cut and sew garments by reducing wastage of fabric at manufacturing stage. We are testing new fabrics that have been made using sustainable fibers and aim to bring these into our range in the near future. All our factories are quality control checked to the highest standard and our small team regularly visit them and are satisfied that working conditions are ok. We are somewhat surprised you find the pants have a cheapish feel to them. But maybe you mean that the material is not thick and when you stretch it and look up-close it has an almost gauze-like appearance; this is the nature of the product and gives it the moisture wicking properties. We hope you will like using them and will realize how comfy they are.



Super comfy and stay in place. U.K. size 10 and ordered small.

Women's Running Long Shorts

At last... chaff free running.

Had just about given up with the belief there were running shorts out there that don’t chaff. Purchased the long shorts, and have to say they are wonderful. They are stable, breathable, comfortable and total chaff free.
I would like to highlight I was under the impression that these were “proper” shorts, however they could possibly be described as a base layer shorts. Some form of lightweight run shorts are recommended to wear over them to cover your modesty. Wearing my lightweight run shorts over the top of them didn’t detract from the long shorts benefits.
I typically run up to 21km.
