What to wear on marathon training runs is almost as important as the training itself. The right kit can not only keep you warm and dry on the bleakest of days, but it can also be a great motivator to get you out of the door when every muscle in your body is telling you to stay on the sofa.

Over the course of ASICS Target 26.2 2015, we’ll be showcasing the essential ASICS gear that will see you through winter and spring. Gear that’s both functional and stylish, which you can wear both on training runs and in the big race itself.
