Why did we start Runderwear?

Posted on

 

Jamie and I met at Loughborough University. We were put on the same corridor in our Halls and instantly became friends as we were incredibly enthusiastic about sport. I was a runner and at the time Jamie played most sports. 

After university Jamie started to run more and did an ironman in the UK. We trained together and to prepare Jamie went off to do the New York Marathon. Whilst there he realised he had great technical clothing but was wearing his usual underwear.  He ended up looking around the expo and all he could find was a pair of Large Womens Hot Pants! Not ideal, but the only option. 

When he got back he said to me we need to find some really good running underwear. We looked around and tried a few things but nothing was perfect. So we decided to make our own. 

This is a business built on passion so we were in no rush. 2 years of trialling at the running club we belong to began. Different fabrics, styles and fits were tried until we found the perfect formula that all our fellow runners loved. Runderwear. 

We think that running underwear is a seriously important part of the kit bag that runners haven't had the opportunity to have. We constantly innovate to become the best sports underwear brand in the world.

 

Healthy regards

Helen said: Excellent socks!

Great socks. They are low rise so great for warm weather but also provide enough cushioning to protect from blisters. Nice design too.

Min said: Fantastic crop top

Bought this crop top as other sports tops chafe when I run marathons. This one does not chafe, perfect fitting and I feel secure. So happy.

I won these in a 5km race and have worn them a frequently since receiving in the post. I now wear them for daily activity use; a walk to the shop, a stroll in the park, and when meeting with friends. The runderwear brief, as you can see from the above, is a versatile product. I also wear the runderwear brief when playing football, as well as when running. For football they are now infact my go to underpants, because they allow for freedom of movement and mimick the netting you get in running shorts, which for reasons unknown to me, is absent from all football shorts. I will be purchasing more runderwear products in the foreseeable.
