Having the right marathon running clothes and gear can make all the difference in how you feel and stay comfortable during your long marathon run.
Marathon shoes should give you plenty of support and running clothes like a marathon shirt and shorts should be light and breathable. Of course, always depending on the weather we will dress appropriately in layers.
Running 42 Km requires a strong mental constitution, lots of time and patience, and a great pair of sneakers.
An ideal marathon training and racing shoe is a highly individual matter, what will works for your running buddy likely won’t work for you.
- The most important thing to look at when picking out a pair of shoes is the immediate comfort.
- Don’t run in a new pair of shoes on race day

Vivian: adidas parley ultra boost

Many runners will race in less clothing than they would train in, and choose their race day clothing based on the weather conditions for that day.
By race day, we want to have tested out all of your kit and know your favorite items, plus what temperature they are most suitable for, so you can make a good choice on the day.
We have chosen to wear this black adidas compression shorts by Sport Gallery that really do wonders in supporting achy muscles.
These shorts have a snug, firm hold and the material is definitely thin and breathable.
