About Runderwear™

The Runderwear™ Story

The Runderwear™ story began as a solution to a problem that is the bane of many runner’s lives - chafing.

Runderwear™’s founders, Jamie and Richard met at Loughborough University when they were put in the same corridor in Halls of Residence and instantly became friends. Both shared an incredible enthusiasm for sport and Richard was a track and cross-country runner whilst Jamie played most sports, particularly football.

After university Jamie started to run more and decided to do the New York Marathon. Whilst there, he realised that whilst he had great technical outer clothing, he was wearing his usual underwear which was chafing. Jamie searched the New York Marathon expo for some performance underwear, but all he could find was a pair of large Women’s Hot Pants! Not ideal!

On Jamie’s return to the UK, he and Richard started to look for good running underwear; they tried a few brands, but nothing was right, so they decided to make their own and Runderwear™ was born!

Fast forward to winning ‘Best Underwear & Socks Brand’ at the 2018 Running Awards and the Runderwear™ range has grown to include different styles of performance underwear, running bras, socks, baselayers and triathlon suits. 

As the Runderwear™ product range expands, Runderwear™’s dedicated ethos remains focused on creating chafe-free comfort for runners.

Our Awards 

Our awards mean a lot to us and we’ve gathered a fair few over the years. Our pride and joy is ‘Best Underwear & Socks Brand’ at the 2018 Running Awards, as this award was voted for by our customers.

At Runderwear™, we are completely single-minded in our determination to make your running experience more comfortable, so awards voted for by runners themselves mean everything to us.

Runderwear™ has also been recognised by Runner’s World, Women’s & Men’s Running, Outdoor Enthusiast and 220 Triathlon, to name just a few.

 

 

Our Team 

The Runderwear™ Team is made up of a small group of runners. Richard and Jamie (Runderwear™’s founders) are keen runners and the Runderwear™ philosophy is built on creating innovative performance underwear, by runners for fellow runners.

With an array of different backgrounds, the Runderwear™ team are at varying levels and stages of their running journeys. These include, an ultra-runner who thinks nothing of running a 100 miler at the weekend, a marathon runner who is on his sixth marathon of the year, a relative newbie who is gradually getting hooked thanks to the amazing Parkrun community and a couple of local club runners who love to do the local league races.

As you’d expect, there is a lot of running chat in the office and a healthy level of competition between team members with various showdowns at local races and parkruns!

We have a regular Friday ‘Runch’ date, where we do a group run together in our lunch break, so if you are ever in the Poole area, come and join us! 

We are constantly testing Runderwear™ products to ensure they perform to their best so that we can all benefit from chafe-free, comfortable running.

Anti Blister socks

These are really good, comfortable socks for running with. They have relieved some of the foot numbness that I get whilst running, so for that alone, a great big thumbs up! However, if I wear them with my cycling shoes, they make the shoes too tight on my feet and cause some discomfort, not intolerable, but enough to make me not want to wear them for cycling.

So, great for running, not so good for cycling.

Perfect for UAE summer

Zero chafing on short and long runs in the stifling heat of a UAE summer.

Runderwear TriSuit

I rode 57km in mid summer with my new Runderwear Trisuit and found it reasonable comfortable and supportive. The seat pad is a little thinner than my other trisuit and makes for less comfort on the bike, but I suppose it would make for a more comfortable swim and run during competition. The material is more compressive than the usual Runderwear gear but is not restrictive. Reasonably happy with my purchase.

An amazing product, perfect for long runs in the hot summer of the UAE. Zero chafing, 100% comfort!

Great Trail Socks

I struggle to find good trail socks. I've worn these socks a few times on the trails now, they're comfortable and are good for movement on the downhills. Because of the double layer, they are a bit hot to wear in the summer heat.
