Chicago is recognized as home to some of the top races and athletes across the globe. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago Half Marathon is one of the city’s largest annual running events and one of 19 Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series Events. The race incorporates a flat, fast course with bands and entertainment along the way.

Runners usually put about 12 weeks into their training for a half marathon. Conditioning leading up to the half marathon can cause soreness, fatigue, and even shin splints. Runners need effective tools to help them train harder and recover faster. Compression leg sleeves are a key tool that help runners stabilize muscles to prevent shin splints and improve muscle efficiency. Wearing compression also increases circulation to prevent the build up of lactic acid so muscles do not experience stiffness or onset muscle soreness days after training or a marathon. Injury prevention and decreased recovery time allow runners to improve endurance and ultimately achieve faster times.

Natalie Kirchhoff, Elite Triathlete, says “I wear Zensah® compression products all the time--training, recovering, running errands, and sleeping (yes, I sleep in them)! I love running in my calf sleeves. I like the material and they don't have seems or annoying tags, plus they come in fun colors. I definitely recommend Zensah® whether you're a weekend warrior, business guy taking a long flight, or professional athlete.”

Zensah® has transformed the running market by engineering athletic compression technology that targets specific muscle groups to protect those areas more prone to injury. This pin-point compression can be found in their innovative compression leg sleeves, which target the calves and shins. In addition to their compression leg sleeves, Zensah® will exhibit their popular compression products, including compression socks and seamless sports bra.
