LBH, running anywhere at any time is hard. But running outside in winter? That’s some next-level dedication right there. Of course, that task becomes a lot easier when you have the right gear to get you through the frigid weather. But what exactly do you need to throw on when temps dip below 50 degrees? And what the heck do you wear when running in 20 degrees? Outdoor workout pros have some strong opinions when it comes to choosing outfits for clocking long runs in the cold. Here a quick reference guide before layering up:
40–49 degrees: A long sleeve shirt, shorts or leggings.
30–39 degrees: A long sleeve shirt, leggings, gloves (optional), a hat to cover your ears (optional).
20–29 degrees: A long sleeve running shirt layered with a jacket, leggings (potentially thermal), gloves, a headband or hat to cover your ears.
10–19 degrees: A long sleeve running shirt layered with a jacket, thick or thermal leggings, gloves, a headband or hat to cover your ears, sneakers with extra tread (optional).
0–9 degrees: Two layered workout shirts, a windbreaker jacket, thermal leggings, gloves, a headband or hat, a ski mask or layer to cover your face.
