Runderwear™ Joins The Longest Try

Posted on

The Longest Try is an endurance event like no other. It will combine the sports of Ultra Running and Rugby League to help fundraise for Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, Miracle Babies Foundation of Australia and Children’s Tumour Foundation of Australia.

Crossing 3 states of Australia, Robbie Dolan, an amateur Rugby League player turned Ultra Marathon runner, will attempt a World's first crossing 1,800km from Melbourne to Brisbane during the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

Read on to learn more about Robbie's motivation for embarking on this incredible adventure and how Runderwear™ will be supporting his journey.

 

 

‘The Longest Try’ has been in production for at least the last 5 years. I began running because I was unable to play Rugby League on a consistent basis as I’d moved to Milton Keynes for work. The hours were weekends and evening shifts so training and playing became more and more difficult. Running I could do on my own, without a fixed time and without feeling most of my body bruised or aching post-match. In 2011, I ran my first 33-mile ultra-marathon. A new mind-set and outlook was being created about what could be achieved away from the work place. 

Running became a great way to visit friends and family through booking races in different places, away from the obvious health benefits keeping active does for you. This continues to be one of the major motivations. The Longest Try was organised because my immediate family is so spread out, with two brothers in Sydney and parents in York, this could be a great way of getting people together. 

Over the last 6 years, I’ve run over 40 marathons and ultra-marathons all over the UK. I understand how the simplest of matters can cause the biggest problems and chafing is usually expected with endurance running. Over the 42 days I hope it’ll take me to run from Melbourne to Brisbane, I will be using Runderwear™ to alleviate the very basic issues of running to keep me chafe-free during the ever-increasing temperatures of Australia’s late Spring into early Summer."

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.

Perfect Baselayer

Garment material is flawless and keeps ur body warm in cold morning runs. Fit is also as per normal standards. A perfect addition to my running gear.
