The most important equipment you need is good shoes. Your running shoes should be fitted at a running specialty shop and you may wish to consult a sports podiatrist.
Many injuries come from poor shoe choice so please look after your feet. A small investment can save you a lot of pain, suffering and expense if poor shoes lead to injury.
Running clothes to suit the weather and conditions where you are training are also important.
Many runners like to wear sun glasses and/or a cap.
A watch to monitor your time and pace is also important. If you train with a partner one watch between the two of you might be ok.
Finally you require access to the internet to enter the Partnerunning Academy site. You can read all material online but will require access to a printer if you want to print your training diary and other documents.
