Given that I just sweat all over them, then throw them in the wash, I don't really care what colour my running tops are.
At least, as a bloke, you don't get a choice of pink, pink, pink and, well, pink in everything.
I quite like vibrant running tops, I really like my lime green running tops and rocket red (its really a posh name for orange) its nice to wear a bright colour that I could not get away with in my everyday life.. I think its the same reason why I like wearing my lyrcra skin shorts.Just realised how camp that sounds.. perhaps there is a closet for me to come out of at some point .. lol
LOL! Top ranting Ian!
I quite like my bright green t-shirt (6€ from Decathlon). Fecking hideous but at least cars can see you.
'Gok' and 'gopping' are new words for me.
<scribbles in notebook for future use>
I read the title as gapping not gopping
was just going to say shut up moaning and put some weight on........................but now i have learnt a new word

Something a bit more earthy, browns, burnt oranges etc. Something a bit more in tune with the countryside that I'm running though rather than the colours of the discarded crisp packet wafting across the trail by a carpark.
Are you trying to sneak up on the wildlife Ian?
Actually quite a lot of manufacturers use browns, greens, burnt orange etc. - have you tried outdoor manufacturers like north face rather than a dedicated running brand? They use the same fabrics.....
Canterbury do a nice pink for the lads.

If you can afford it icebreaker do some good earth tones, though for sheep you still want white.
Urban Dictionary has an alternative definition for the word 'gopping'.
I've got tops in pink, orange, maroon, earthy brown - maybe girls get more choice?
I can see the appeal of duller colours for running off-road but if I'm running along roads I like to be very visible to reduce the chance of getting run over. I suspect that's why bright colours are more popular.
I think if the colour of your running gear is troubling you, you haven't really much to worry about.
Count yourself lucky.
