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!
