    Looking good
    Oakley is clearly the preferred brand when it comes to sunglasses – Oakley athletes won 107s medal at the London Olympics! Match up to them with Radarlock glasses, which uses Switchlock technology that makes changing lenses on the go, a breeze.

    Sound bites
    Whether you’re a seasoned runner or a couch potato venturing out for the first time, the W Series Sports Walkman delivers your beats on the move. Your ideal run partner (or even swim or shower buddy!), it features lightweight and snug-fitting, in-ear buds that are hands-free and wireless. Our top feature is that if you press the play button for two seconds, it’ll scan the database (ZAPPIN) to play songs to match the intensity of your workout. `6,490. At 100 Feet Road, Indiranagar.

    Burn bright
    Nothing like a flaming orange pair of running shoes to keep you in the game during the long stretches, where you really need to dig deep. The pair comes with hexagonal flex grooves on the outsole for a fuller range of motion, sock like uppers that take the natural form of the foot and a stretchy, double yarn make that offers flexibility and extra support. `12,995.

    Watch out
    Track time and fitness levels through the race with FitBit Surge. A sleek unisex watch, it is ideally worn further up on the hand to trace the heartrate. It uses GPS and heart rate to track workout speed, distance and exercise intensity, so you can monitor your moves closely. The best part is you don’t need to switch off post-race as it will track all-day steps, calories and sleep. `25,000 on amazon.in

    Full tank
    This hydration belt comes with a slim zipped pocket for light essentials, and two tilted bottle holders for easy access. Sitting just above or on the hips, it does not hamper with movement and the tilt ensures minimal stall. For the serious runner, Kalenji has a backpack with room for a one-litre bottle, keys, and a few other supplies. `899 and `2,999 at Decathalon, Whitefield. Details: 8095000898

    Stretch it
    A runner herself, Anjhe Mules knows exactly how important correct clothing is. That is why as the creative director of Lucas Hugh, you can rest assured that these leadlight printed stretch leggings will enable optimum sporting performance. High on functionality as well as light-hearted appeal through the prints, this second-skin format will make sure the fabric moves with you. We love the neat front pockets for your phone and the back compartment for a credit card or emergency money. `35,000 on netaporter.com

    Cover up
    Men, don’t let the ladies steal all the limelight. For the warm up and post-race revelries, we suggest you throw on the Reebok One Series jacket. If you choose, you could even keep it on while running as it is made with Playice, which means it absorbs moisture, and keeps you cool and
    ventilated. Elasticated cuffs and one- side zipped pocket add additional comfort and functionality. `5,599 at Residency Road. Details: 41517940

    Appy run
    Android and iPhone users who are just starting out could well do with RunKeeper by FitnessKeeper Inc.

It will integrate with your music app to keep beat to your pace while also ensuring that your heartrate is optimal. Keep it on after the race too and learn to step on it through expert advice and fitness challenges. In-app products `55 to `2,500. On play.google.com and  itunes.apple.com
