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!

Anti Blister socks

These are really good, comfortable socks for running with. They have relieved some of the foot numbness that I get whilst running, so for that alone, a great big thumbs up! However, if I wear them with my cycling shoes, they make the shoes too tight on my feet and cause some discomfort, not intolerable, but enough to make me not want to wear them for cycling.

So, great for running, not so good for cycling.

Perfect for UAE summer

Zero chafing on short and long runs in the stifling heat of a UAE summer.

Runderwear TriSuit

I rode 57km in mid summer with my new Runderwear Trisuit and found it reasonable comfortable and supportive. The seat pad is a little thinner than my other trisuit and makes for less comfort on the bike, but I suppose it would make for a more comfortable swim and run during competition. The material is more compressive than the usual Runderwear gear but is not restrictive. Reasonably happy with my purchase.

An amazing product, perfect for long runs in the hot summer of the UAE. Zero chafing, 100% comfort!

Great Trail Socks

I struggle to find good trail socks. I've worn these socks a few times on the trails now, they're comfortable and are good for movement on the downhills. Because of the double layer, they are a bit hot to wear in the summer heat.
