ATHLETE GEAR PICKS

ESSENTIAL GEAR RECOMMENDATIONS BY THE ENDURANCE TEAM TO KEEP YOU FAST & LIGHT!

What you wear on Race Day will depend on WHERE you're racing.  For example, moderate temperatures and wind greeted some Bear Mountain, NY runners in 2012, while participants in the 2012 Washington, DC Endurance Challenge had some moderate heat. Layering was essential in both the Madison and San Francisco events this past year - weather conditions changed throughout the weekend, bringing wind, rain, sunshine and plenty of mud. 

Always train as much as possible with your gear before the race in order to get comfortable with it and break it in. By Race Day, your gear should be your best, most trusted running partner - one you know you can trust no matter what the weather, course conditions or distance. 



“Better Than Naked Cool Crew T-shirt - the best breathable running shirt ever! The body- mapped ventilation, and burn-out ventilation at the center of your back, all keeps you cool and breathing easier during tough race efforts.”
