Let’s set the scene. You’ve got your trainers on. You’re hydrated and you’ve just scoffed down an energy bar or banana. You shut the front door, phone and keys in hand, and are about to embark on your running route. Your hand automatically reaches down to put your phone in your pocket and … there isn’t one! This is a classic situation for most runners.
Running clothes are not always sufficient when it comes to pockets and storage space. If, like me, you dislike carrying essential items in your hands when you run, here's a list of fantastic clothing and accessories with storage solutions. Whether it be a little thigh pocket to subtly tuck your phone away or a more substantial pack to keep everything in one place on your longer runs, welcome to pockets galore.

Why carry your phone while running?
Why you need to carry your keys is an obvious one, but what about the phone? Most of us are probably over-dependent on our smartphones in everyday life, and for some people running is the only chance to switch off from devices and communication. But running with a phone can be useful:
- To make a call in an emergency
- To listen to music
- To help you navigate
- To track your run
- To take a sweaty selfie for Strava when it's over!
More and more, brands and manufacturers are starting to get clued in as to how necessary it is to have pockets and storage on your runs. Whether it be just a simple armband for your phone or key, or a bigger hydration back for your spare clothing, nutrition and water, or even a subtle thigh pocket under your twin-layer shorts, stay safe and secure on every run with our great range of clothing and running accessories with extra storage for whatever you need to take with you.
