Share Article

A recent lifestyle article in DNA India lists several essential things people should bring and wear when running a marathon. PRO Compression, manufacturers of high-quality athletic compression socks for runners and other athletes, releases a statement pointing out the benefits of compression garments, which can provide support and relief for a marathon runner.

On March 27, 2013, PRO Compression releases a statement following a DNA article by Shashwati Shankar discussing essential tools for any marathon runner's arsenal.

According to the DNA India article, several essentials people need to bring with them when they run a marathon include compression socks, a water belt, sweat bands, and sunglasses. The article suggests that a little planning for what supplies to bring to a marathon is simply good practice and can make a person think in terms of efficiency and help turn them in to a disciplined runner.

The article continues to mention the importance of compression socks for runners, stating that many marathon runners swear by compression socks because of the support they offer. “Throughout the day, your body pumps blood to every part as equally as possible, gravity can often cause blood to pool in the lower legs and feet, causing circulatory problems. This can ultimately lead to fatigue and leg cramps, therefore compression socks can improve your performance. It helps speed up your leg’s recovery process after running a marathon.”

The article recommends other items as essential aids for runners:

  • A water belt can help keep you hydrated when running a marathon, and is a great way to hold on to your water when running.
  • Sunglasses should be lightweight, comfortable, and help keep the sun out of your eyes “while staying clear of condensation.”
  • Sweatbands for the head, wrist, and even legs are important when running a marathon. They help manage heat, and can help keep hair off of your face while absorbing sweat.

Eric Smith, CEO of PRO Compression, comments on the potential importance of compression technology for running. “Most people wouldn’t think compression socks could play a big role in how well someone does in a marathon, but in actuality, wearing compression socks can help increase a runner’s speed while keeping them more comfortable. They can even assist with recovery time when runners wear them post-race for therapeutic purposes.”
