Runners need good quality shoes! Please make sure runners are properly fitted for their shoes and that shoes are replaced as they get close to wearing out.
Then next they need a good running watch.
Coach Draughon, and many of the runners, use Garmin watches. That said, there are many different levels, and costs, to those running watches. Many of our runners use the Garmin Forerunner 55 or the Garmin Forerunner 255. Coach Draughon uses a much more expensive watch, which is absolutely not necessary for high school runners.
I will add more info about prehab and recovery equipment which runners will find useful. That will probably happen after the July 11th Time Trials.
