Here are my suggestions for buying your first running kit on a budget.

I have scoured the ASICS.com website and using my product knowledge and eye for bargains to select whole kits for men and women. When starting a sport it can be daunting and we may not want to spend a lot of money or have a limited budget. I have managed to select whole kits which come £52 to £82 more than ASICS' top of the range racing trainers. I have selected full price items as sale items on the website will have limited size availability. Therefore you may be able to find even cheaper bargains. 

Summary

Men's items include a jacket, long sleeve top, tights/shorts, 6 pairs of socks and shoes for £277. Women's items include a jacket, long sleeve top, sports bra, tights, 6 pairs of socks and shoes for £307.
