What to wear to run a marathon!

26 miles: it's a long way to run. Give your body the best chance with a bit of forward planning, the right running gear, and plenty of training of course! 


Breathable shorts

You'll see these a lot: unisex microlite running shorts. They are extremely lightweight, water repellant, breathable and very popular with runners.

Shorts to prevent chafing

If your thighs meet when you run, you may find the shorter shorts don't suit you and cause chafing. Consider longer shorts to help overcome this.

Fitted tops to prevent chafing & wick away moisture

Fitted tops help prevent nipple chafing: a serious problem for male long distance runners. The wicking properties of more fitted tops will be more effective too.

A looser top means there is less material in contact with the skin: preferred by many runners on hotter days.
