As parkrun numbers continue to climb, it’s clear to us at Intersport that a few cold mornings can do nothing to dampen the fantastic parkrun spirit. With the right gear, you’ve been running your weekly 5K through wind, drizzle and frost, and we’re sure that post-parkrun cuppa has never been more welcome.
We’re particularly impressed with our friends over in Nose Hill, Canada, where temperatures hover around freezing and the parkrun course is compacted with snow…their furthest marshal point is even called ‘Siberian corner’! If the Canadians know anything, it’s how to dress for cold weather, and we’re here at Intersport to help make sure that you too have all the right kit, whatever the British winter throws at us.
Whether you need an extra moisture-wicking base layer or simply want to chat about your running goals, come and see us in store (find your nearest store here). At Intersport, we’re always on hand with plenty of expert advice, from tips about running through to gait analysis and finding your perfect shoe; it’s amazing what a difference the correct gear can make to your performance and enjoyment of running!
We also promised that we’d be bringing you more on our exciting product launch of Pro Touch by Intersport, and this is all to look forward to next week!

In 2011 I suffered my first traumatic brain injury. I fell 20 feet and landed on my head. A nurse who saw my accident thought I was dead, until she came over to me and realised I was still breathing. Nobody expected me to survive the night and was given just a 10% chance…
