  • Your Own Marathon Pace

    The Marathon. The ultimate, time-honoured yard stick that distance runners measure themselves by.

    This year we have designed a running kit for the modern footracer.

    'Rushup Wind Jacket'

    For the modern footracer the long run is a staple in the weekly training schedule and is often run in changeable weather. For this the ‘Pedestrian' requires a breathable, lightweight layer to shield them from the elements that can be packed down and stored in a waist belt or rear pocket if needed as the weather lifts.

    Rushup is a hill in the peak district (elev 550m) which can throw the harshest wind the Peak has to offer. It proved a good testing ground for this piece. 

    - Lightweight wind protection with an athletic cut.

    - Designed to be used in temperatures below  5°C

    - Gamex windproof main fabric, combined with Airmesh breathable side panels

    - Sturdy YKK zip

      

    'Oxstones Winter Tight' 

    Nestled up on Burbage moor, the Ox Stones act as a navigational point when the weather closes in. Under foot is a mixture of thick boggy peat and course heather for which the Ped requires a full length water repellent tight to provide both warmth and protection when traversing this ground through the autumn and winter months. 

    Equally at home pounding the pavement the Oxstones Tight features reflective ankles and the subtle Mamnick colours giving extra visibility along with a rear pocket to store phone and keys.

    - Main material: Tempest* - warm, light and water repellent

    - Wide elastic band with internal drawcord for an adjustable fit

    - Reflective PXL inserts on the trouser ends.

      

    'Higgar Lycra Shorts'

    For those quick and short winter runs the modern ‘Ped' requires a go-to piece that provides muscular support when descending or pushing the pace. The Higgar Short is lightweight and made from Lycra Performer material; a cool, light and elastic fabric that provides a compression effect which supports your muscles and aids circulation. A wide elastic band with internal drawcord provides an adjustable fit while Silicone leg grippers ensure the fit is secure.

    - 4 way stretch: A textile's elasticity is one of the main determinants of the freedom of movement, fit and comfort of a garment. 4 way stretch textiles have the same elasticity in all directions and therefore ensure perfect support.

    - Breathable: The body heat produced during exercise must be dissipated even in cooler circumstances. Breathable fabrics dissipate surplus heat but do not let cold air or moisture in.

     

    ‘Black National Jersey' 

    Kinder Scout is a firm training ground of the Peak based footracer. This colour-way pays homage to the unforgiving, black peat covered plateau. The quick drying nature of this technical t.shirt will help you clock-up those winter miles in changing weather.

    - Lightweight, short sleeved running shirt for training and racing in moderate to warm temperatures.

    - Breathable, lightweight main fabric.

     

    ‘White National Jersey' 

    Many aspire to earn the right to pull on a national jersey. Here we have crafted a Mamnick National Jersey. You earn the right to pull this jersey on by being naturalised in the free thinking state of Mamnicism.

    - Lightweight, short sleeved running shirt for training and racing in moderate to warm temperatures.

    - Breathable, lightweight main fabric.

      

     

    'YOMP Singlet' 

    Some will attempt to tackle the distance clinging onto others and inevitably get blown out the back. The wise footracer will run his own pace. After months of training in the cold mornings and dark evenings race day will come and it will be time to toe the start line. YOMP! Your Own Marathon Pace.

    - Lightweight, breathable running top 

    - Taped neck and armhole seams

      

    'YOMP Butterfly Racers' 

    Paired with the YOMP singlet, these shorts are a statement piece for the modern Pedestrian. They are laser cut from Aquaracer fabric and have a classic racer fit with a functional zipper pocket on the back.

    (Not to be worn in the park whilst calling yourself a PED. Save them for the race day!)

    - Made from Aquaracer* fabric

    - Zipped rear pocket

    - Lined with laser cut-seams

    *Tempest ~ A thermal breathable material with a brushed layer of microfiber and an out layer that protects the body from the cold. This textile has undergone a treatment during the weaving process. During this process, special threads are woven into the textile, which form a physical barrier from water. This is how we obtain a material that is water-repellent, breathable, quick-drying and comfortable. Because it is woven in, rather than a coating applied on top, these features are permanent, even after repeated use and washing.

    *Aquaracer ~ This multidimensionally elastic, fabric is naturally stretched in every direction. This ensures a maximum freedom of movement. A gentle retention mechanism creates an extraordinary and particularly effective second skin effect.It features UV protection (factor 50). Aquaracer offers maximum breathability, yet allows water and air to slide off without penetrating the fibers, thanks to a hydrophylic treatment on the inside and a water repellent treatment on the outside. This hydro and aero-dynamic advantage is already demonstrated during numerous tests and races.
