Geared Up

Three weeks ago today, The Food Runners relaunched in style. Nike Toronto stepped up in a big way to deck each runner out head-to-toe in the latest gear — including an apron to keep them motivated even when in the kitchen instead of outside pounding the pavement.

Since training for the Scotiabank 5k, half marathon and full marathon started at the tail-end of summer, it was important to provide them with versatile pieces that carried well into the fall.

On the women:

epic lux capri

Epic Lux Running Capris | These spandex tights provides a lot of stretch for optimal movement while still offering a tight, streamlined fit for support.

dri fit contour tee

Dri-Fit Contour Short Sleeve Tee | This breathable and ergonomic design boasts three types of textures for different degrees of cooling, which ensures a comfortable run in various temperatures.

On the men:



Dri-Fit Contrast Short Sleeve Tee | The knit-in mesh textures and ventilation zones ensures runners stay cool even on the hottest days. It also has near seamless construction for increased comfort and decreased chafing.

phenon 2-1 shorts

7” Phenom 2-1 Shorts | Made to keep runners dry and comfortable, these shorts have laser-perforated sides for ventilation, built-in boxer briefs for both support and freedom as well as back zip pocket to store small items.

As for the most important element of their new outfits, The Food Runners were given one of two pairs of shoes from the Zoom Collection.
