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.

Women's Runderwear Low-Rise Hipster

Amazing!

I recently purchased and used both the Runderwear Compression socks and Underwear in a 10km and Half-Marathon and cannot rate these products higher! After using both products during both events I experienced no chaffing or muscle pains in my calves or quads. Both products are incredibly high quality and no doubt will last many runs. The customer service has been great with fast delivery and a huge presence at recent fun-runs in Abu Dhabi.

Good Quality

Previously I purchased same set in different color. Used it on my full marathon last month in my home country. I really like the light fabric, finished my 42k chaff free. So when I came back I purchased again same items. Thanks Runderwear.

Socks

Great comfortable sock for running

Compression socks

Great socks and perfect fit. Really fast and professional service from Runderwear.
