Marathon des Sables Review

Posted on


 

During this years Marathon Des Sables, Susie Chan decided to use Runderwear™.  This is how she got on:

Running 156 miles through the Sahara desert in the Marathon des Sables, you need to carry everything you need to eat, sleep and live for the week. Not wanting to carry any extra weight whatsoever, I had no change of clothes for the whole race. It is absolutely essential to wear the correct kit. One bit of kit that really needs to do it’s job and be comfortable is your sports bra!

Running with a rucksack that weights upwards of 22lb  you do not want anything to chaffe. The sand gets everywhere, the temperatures hit over 50 degrees, you sweat,  the conditions are tough!

I chose the Rundwear bra. It is seamless, no clasps, so comfortable you don’t even know you are wearing it, it does it’s job and it was one less thing to worry about! It performed extraordinarily well. It is now a firm favourite and part of my essential  ultra running kit!

Runderwear Long Boxer

Excellent product

The Anti Blister Low-Rise Running Sock

Best Socks for Trail Running

Wore a pair during Oman Desert Marathon, only changing to a clean pair on day 5. No excessive sweating (even with the double layer) and no blister even after wearing them for almost 100km in very hot (above 40C) running condition and soft sand.
Also that double-layer gives an extra cushioning making them very comfortable for long runs on rocky trails.

Awesome Base Layer recommended for training in fresh to very cold environment

Tested the baselayer while running for 4 hours by -10C with only 1 extra layer to protect me from the wind and it kept me warm all the way. I also like to wear it for my early morning running session in the fresh Dubai winter and I don't feel to warm as it is very breathable and wicks moisture.
