Run to The Big Issue Shop for marathon deals

Warm up for the London Marathon with custom kit that goes the extra mile

Spring is here and that can mean only one thing – it’s marathon season.

The London Marathon makes its annual return on April 22, hoping to break the world record for an annual single day charity fundraising event for the twelfth straight year after raising £61.5 million in 2017.

A total of 40,382 runners braved the historic course last year and whether you’re a 26.2 mile-veteran with a raft of anecdotes about taking on ‘the wall’ and winning, or you’re donning running shoes for the one and only time in your life in aid of a worthy cause, you need good quality equipment to get you over the line.

The Big Issue Shop will be with you every step of the way with the all-new Marathon Collection.

When you’re feeling good as you eat up the miles early on, and then when the aches and pains start to slow you down as you deliriously acknowledge the final mile marker with a grimace, our fashionable running-inspired gear will help.

If you’re tired of the dayglow neon polyester, put your best foot forward with any of the 100 per cent cotton t-shirts on offer, letting you stand out from the crowd as you sprint your way through the traffic. You can even add your own personal touch by adding your name to let the watching fans something to shout about out just as you start to flag in a last push for the finish.

And best of all, every purchase makes a difference, helping The Big Issue’s mission to eradicate poverty gather pace.

Run the rule over the Marathon Collection in The Big Issue Shop here.
