2023 is upon us, and for many, the new year is all about taking up new hobbies, trying new things and setting new goals. If for you, one of these goals includes taking up regular running, it’s important that you equip yourself with the best activewear, tips and gear to see you through your ventures, no matter the weather or environment.

The right pair of running leggings will both fit you correctly and comfortably while helping to optimise the effectiveness of your exercise. The wrong activewear can be the difference between a good and a bad run – there’s no worse feeling than a waistband that you have to constantly pull up, feeling the nuisance of an improper fit or constantly worrying if the stretch fabric is too sheer.

We want you to have everything you need to feel your very best on your jogs, because the better you feel, the more motivated and comfortable your run will be. That’s why we’ve rounded up the best running leggings for all skill levels and preferences, and you can thank us later. Into speed-walking rather than a flat-out sprint? You’ll be after a looser, more flexible fit. Working on finessing your mobility and reaching a new personal best? We’ve got high-performance, muscular compression leggings for that. Scroll down to discover more options for yourself. On your marks, get set, go!
