Just wear something you can move freely in, there’s no need for Lycra or technical fabrics. Layers are good so you can take them on or off according to how hot you feel.
Any brand and any age will do, dig out the sports shoes from the back of the cupboard. You can invest in a new pair once you’ve got started.
If you have one; our coaches will be able to advise you if you don’t. In the meantime, just wear the most supportive bra you have and perhaps a tight fitting vest too to give extra support.
Bring a waterproof coat and something dry to pull on afterwards.
Wear a hat and gloves, a light scarf can be a good idea too.
Grab a cap, sunglasses, sunscreen and a bottle of water.
