The sun has finally put his hat on, and with UV indexes climbing up during these months, we return to the ever present question of protection from the sun.

Wearing sunscreen on exposed areas is not always the solution – the sun will also penetrate many normal fabrics. Ronhill’s new collection includes garments with a SPF 50 – a high level of sun protection ideal for keeping the sun at bay whilst you run.

The summer collection for 2006 has it all: an array of colours, flattering fit and a high level of sun protection. Those planning on pounding the pavements this summer should look out for the health conscious Women’s Aspire long sleeve crew which uses Hydrowick fabric with a sun protection factor of 50.

Ronhill’s Women’s Aspire Long Sleeve Crew Tee at SRP £25 and use the exclusive Hydrowick fabric which transfers moisture away from your body keeping you feeling fresh, cool and dry. Simply styled, they offer comfort details such as a transfer label and flat locked seams to minimise chafing.

Ronhill provide a no nonsense range of clothing for runners, focusing on function and affordability, without compromising on quality. More information on the entire range can be found at

or at any sport shop worth its salt.
