Ronhill (Established 1970) has been making functional running clothing for all types of running enthusiasts over the past 40 years.
Ron Hill is the first ever runner from Britain to win the Boston Marathon, in 2hrs 10mins 30secs.
After graduating from university with a PhD in textile chemistry, Hill was convinced of the benefits of synthetic materials for runners. In 1970 he started a company named Ron Hill Sports, which pioneered various products including wrap-over shorts, mesh vests, waterproof running jackets and reflective strips. Hill says he founded the company "because I was running to and from work in the dark in winter and wondered what I needed to stay safe."
