How it works

Xempo running gear is ideal as either racewear or as training gear for marathon, half marathon, 10k and 5k runners. And it doesn’t just feel good. It is the only kit out there which shows (off) just how fast you are.

Different colours in the range represent different standards. So whether you are an elite runner, a mid-pack improver or a first time long distance runner, there’s a Xempo colour for you.

So reward yourself for that recent PB, show it off to your rivals, or simply let others know how good you are. And as only runners of 5k, 10k, half and full marathons will be wearing Xempo gear, you’ll be joining an exclusive club. Just tell us where and when you ran your race and we’ll do all the verification for you.

The colour system

The Xempo scale works like the martial arts belt system. Increasing standards of race performance are rewarded with different colours from the Xempo range.


You must have achieved your qualifying time in a 5k, 10k, half marathon or a marathon from 2008 onwards to be eligible for the Xempo range.


When buying from the Xempo range, just enter the details of the race in which you (or the person you’re buying for) have achieved the required standard and we’ll do the rest.

A colour for everyone

The first colour in the scale is white. You’ve earned this for whatever time you’ve achieved in a 5k, 10k, half marathon or full marathon. So well done! You’ve already qualified.

From yellow...

Next up, yellow. This is for the runners who have achieved a sub 26:00 5k, sub 55:00 10k, sub 2h00 half marathon or a sub 4h15 marathon. gold

Gold is for that elite group who’ve achieved a sub 15:30 5k, sub 32:00 10k,  sub 1h10 half marathon or a sub 2h30 marathon.

Wear with pride

You’ve put the work in. You’ve run the race. And now you can show others just what league you’re in. Only those who have completed races at the relevant distance are eligible.

More to come

We’ll be extending Xempo across different disciplines and sports in the near future - watch this space!
