Marathon running is a whole new ball game that requires your gear to withstand the harsh elements. And Compressport has everything that fits the bill.
You may be able to get away with running 10km in your home T-shirt and shorts, but let’s face it: if you’re tackling a way longer distance like a half marathon (21km) or a full marathon (42km), those casual clothes aren’t going to cut it. When you’re pounding the pavement with repetitive movements over a couple of hours, expect your wardrobe decisions to come biting you in the butt, maybe even literally.
Whether they are seasoned or not, marathon runners often run into a myriad of problems during their race: chafing in areas they’ve never felt before (armpits and inner thighs, and nipples for men), blisters around the feet, sudden leg cramps, overheating or worse, dehydration.
So, it’s no exaggeration to say that donning the right attire is a big preventive step in minimising those nasty occurrences.
Designed for sportsmen and women of all fitness levels, Swiss brand Compressport comes with expertise from the medical field, and offers a wide range of performance-standard products that will cover everything you need for a smooth and enjoyable marathon experience.
The good news: Compressport is the Official Apparel Partner for this year’s Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon, so you’ll be able to wear their lightweight and breathable microfibre singlet for an easy-breezy race.
As a bonus, you can look forward to a Compressport Finisher T-shirt at the end of your run.
Put together the perfect running outfit by pairing the top with Compressport’s other innovative apparel, which are created to improve performance and recovery in any rigorous environment.
Compressport’s anti-blister compression tights and socks are especially popular among competitive runners and athletes. They are comfortable, thanks to a seamless and form-fitting design with no excess fabric to irritate your skin, moisture-wicking, so you wouldn’t be drowning in sweat halfway through the marathon, and best of all, offer optimal compression to support your hardworking muscles by reducing vibrations, and hence, cramps and injury.
The compression fabric also boosts oxygen circulation to your muscles, as well as helps to regulate your body temperature to prevent overheating.
If you’re not a fan of full-length tights, go for Compressport’s lightweight compression shorts – they come with the same great benefits.
Compressport’s high-quality apparel are made in Europe, combining the latest technologies with modern trends. As an environmentally conscious brand, Compressport utilise materials that are manufactured under the highest and strictest global standards, minimising environmental impact without compromising on health and safety. No harmful or toxic chemicals are used, so you can be 100 per cent-focused on running without worrying about skin irritation.
