Rehoboth Beach Running Company - Gearing up for Winter Runs
The Rehoboth Seashore Marathon and Half-Marathon is December 2nd.
By then, temperatures will likely be more seasonable and runners will chose their running gear to match the weather. Mary Beth Evans, owner of Rehoboth Beach Running Company says the best way to dress for cold-weather running is to layer up. She suggests gear made with wicking material.
It kind of pulls the sweat away from you so that you
are not soaking wet, Evans says.
Even if the temperatures are on the warm side come December, Evans says a lot of runners will still wear a hat and gloves. the hats and gloves at RBRC are also made with think wicking material. Some of the gloves have special finger tips to allow you to use the touch screen on your smart phone.
They’re wicking, they’re warm, but they’re not too heavy on your hands, says Evans.
Evans says running tights are another popular item for runners as the temperatures start to dip.
The Rehoboth Seashore Marathon and Half Marathon is December 2nd. Evans says there are still slots available for both races.
