Cancer Research UK launches new kit

CRUK launches affordable range of running apparel

CRUK

Cancer Research UK has launched a brand new range of high quality sportswear, with 100% of all profits going to the charity. The new range comprises quality apparel at an affordable price, while providing fitness enthusiasts with a new way to support the charity.

The new women’s range comprises Black Running Shorts (£20), Stripey Black Vest (£13), Pink Microfleece (£20), and Blue T-Shirt (£15). Here’s what our digital writer, Jenny Bozon, thought of the new range.

Women’s Black Running Shorts

What I loved about these shorts was their high-waisted fit. Pulling you in, in all of the right places, these shorts offer a flattering look and are extremely comfortable to run in.

Women’s Stripey Black Vest

The Stripey Vest was my favourite garment. Only £13, this vest offers the same quality as the sports vests offered by some of the leading brands on the market at a much more affordable price. The TACTILE™ sports performance fabric and high fibre 100% polyester yarn is extremely breathable and offers great moisture management. What’s more, it offers a comfortable and stylish fit and the design is pretty quirky too.

Women’s Blue T-Shirt with Pink Stripes

While this t-shirt is uber-comfortable and is sure to keep you nice and cool on a hot day, I found the fit a little unflattering. The crew neck is a little on the wide side and the t-shirt is definitely felt over-sized. Then again, if a “boyfriend fit” is what you’re after and you like your running kit loose, it might be for you!

Women’s Pink Microfleece

I wrapped up in this fleece ahead of my Saturday morning parkrun and it definitely did the job! Super warm and cosy, it’s ideal to slip on before a race, or if out supporting friends. Plus, it washes great too and still retains its super-soft feel.
