A high-rise waist with an internal drawcord, reflective details for better visibility in low light and a zipped back pocket for your keys and a lipbalm, these Nike leggings are a go-to and a good price on asos.

Another affordable, yet important layer to have in your wardrobe, you can’t go wrong with this half-zip layer from Nike. Features include a high neck for those cold mornings, stretch material to allow full movement and reflective details to keep you visible in low light.

Nike Running 10K shorts, £22, asos.com

All female runners will understand the struggle of finding the perfect pair of running shorts – shorts that don’t rise up, don’t chafe and have a pocket for your essentials. Whilst these Nike 10K shorts are lacking the pocket (don’t worry, we’ve found these women’s running shorts that do have space for your essentials) they’re pretty good contenders when it comes to staying put and minimising chafing.

If you’ve just got into the London Marathon ballot, or are training for your first 10K, get ready to experience the joys of winter training. One key investment to make now? A good rain jacket. This waterproof option looks great, with a drawstring hood and adjustable hem, and most importantly, should do a pretty good job of keeping you dry.
