Running is a relatively cheap sport, however we do advise to buy some decent running trainers. We aren't asking you to spend £100's on the flashiest pair. but trainers which are designed/branded for running do help. They usually have shock absorption, more stability and support, which you may not get from astro trainers, fashionable trainers or shoes. There are specialist shops which can give you professional advice for trainers, especially if you have/you've had foot issues.
In the winter we just ask that you wear suitable clothing, bring a waterproof coat, jumpers, long-sleeve tops, thermals, to make sure you keep warm throughout the session. In the winter when it's darker, higher visibility colours are always a bonus.
The same applies for the summer and warmer months; sports-specific tops are made out of different materials which breathe better to control moisture, although many wear normal t-shirts/vests.
For competitions we ask everyone to wear a club vest, which is red with the DRAC logo and name on it.
