Active Accessories for Every Budget

Parkrun flatpack

You’ve paired up with the perfect running shoes, you’ve got the kit – now all that’s left to do is take your upcoming summer parkruns to the next level with the right active essentials. Gear up with these budget-friendly accessories that’ll ensure your next workouts are anything but run of the mill.


It’s in the bag


From ultra-compact running waistbelts to pack-it-all backpacks, MRP Sport’s got just the bag for your next trail, road or parkrun route. Keep all those summer essentials – like sunnies and sunscreen – nearby.

And if it’s just your phone you’re packing, the Maxed arm pouch should do it.


Water bottle


Think beyond your go-to, everyday bottle, and team up with new faves like the big 1-litre bottle for extra-large thirsts, the ergonomically shaped running bottle, or the mist and sip bottle – its pop-up closure lets you take a sip, while its spray function cools you down with a refreshing spritz.


Take a towel


Keep all your small essentials nearby when you’re on the move with the cool, compact and handy zip-up pocket gym towel. The best part? These sweat-soakers are made with locally-produced cotton. This contributes to the 2600+ jobs that have already been created or retained in the local cotton farming industry.

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.
