Run in the sun


The days are a little longer and the runs are definitely a little hotter, but don’t let the heat stop you from taking on those summer parkruns! MRP Sport has the coolest range of fitness accessories, perfect to keep you cool and comfy throughout those runs in the sun.


Visors and caps: These are great for protecting your eyes and face from the sun’s harmful glare. They look cool too.


Water bottles: Stay hydrated on the move with a water bottle that’s perfect for you.


Sun protection: Not just for beach days and weekends around the pool. Stock up on Sun Doctor’s range of sunscreen to protect your exposed skin (arms, neck, chest and face) from the sun’s skin-damaging UV rays.


Sunglasses: MRP Sport’s range of lightweight, wrap-around sunglasses all feature UV400 protection, designed to protect your eyes from 99 to 100% of UVA and UVB light.


Towels: MRP Sport’s range of zip-up gym towels are great for parkruns and beyond. Available in an array of colours, these feature a zip-up pocket, perfect for keeping those small essentials at hand.


For these summer parkrun essentials and more, check out your nearest MRP Sport store, shop online at or shop on the MRP app, now available on iOS and Android.
