Running Gear

Running Clothes and Gear


At the Chester County Running Store, we understand just how important running gear is to each individual. Depending upon the weather and time of day you are running, your needs will vary. We hand pick each item we carry and choose many colors and styles of gear in order to allow runners to customize their outfits. We carry various brands which include; Nike, Brooks, Asics, Saucony, Sugoi and Mizuno. Almost all of the clothes are made out of technical fabric. This helps to regulate your body temperature by wicking moisture away from your body as you sweat. Our gear selection usually varies by season. For example, in the summer, we mainly carry shorts, tanks, singlets and light weight gear for hot, humid weather. In the fall and winter, we sell running tights, tech shirts made for layering, outer wear to protect you from the elements and reflective clothes and accessories. We also have a huge selection of water belts, bottles, braces and supports.
