What MP3 Player for running
What MP3 player would people recommend? Before people say an Ipod I'm so Anti-Apple I couldn't even touch one!
I may have just signed myself up for the 10 mile Great south run in October and for those who know/have met me I'm not the smallest chap in the world so I have 6 months to get fit and get ready!

I brought this today just for running and out and about: Buy Philips SA3VBE04BN Vibe 4GB MP3 and Video Player - Blue at Argos.co.uk - Your Online Shop for MP3 players, MP3 players with video.
So lite its untrue! nothing to it, and loved the idea of quick charge in 5 mins for 90 min of use!

Sorry glennda, im not that much of an enthusiast lol, It normally goes into my shorts or joggers, and the headphones goes inside my top and out the neck...Tried it today and was great little mp3 player for 40 quid.

I've got an original Sansa Clip, nice little no nonsense player. I had a few issues using FLAC files (which I understand aren't as standardised as MP3s), but with MP3s it's been fine.

Another vote for the Sansa Clip. The 'clip' part of the design an excellent feature, you don't have to be exercising to use it, clip it to your shirt collar or sleeve. Far better than any arm band or pouch.
It's compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux, just drag and drop to/from the Sansa, no need for any software.

Forgot to mention rockbox for the sansa clip too - much better than the default firmware.
Rockbox - Free Music Player Firmware

I know your not an apple fan which is a shame because the combination of an iPod Nano + LunaTik strap using the Nike+ app lets you run with the nano on your wrist so you can listen to your music plus use it as a GPS so you can see the ever important distance and pace stats without having to pay a lot for a good garmin.

Did you get anything in the end? I've been thinking of getting one for a while now and with the weather getting better (I hope) I want something I can listen to when I'm out for a run. I just want it to clip on and go and also not spend a lot of money if I can help it.
