Our squad of testers put the latest running and fitness gear to the sweat test to determine the winners of our 2017 Tech Awards.
Whether you’re new to the sport or a cross country veteran, these three products are worth checking out.
Take your cross-country racing to the next level with a pair of racing spikes. If you’re not familiar with the feel of the extra-gripping shoe, start off with a beginner-friendly model that will allow you to ease your way into the spike-racing world. This Saucony pair not only looks snazzy, but it’s also perfect for a variety of distances!
Shorts that allow you to move freely without worrying about chafing are a cross-country runner’s dream. These performance-fitted shorts offer the Goldilocks of coverage (not too short, not too long—just right!). Plus the zippered pocket is the perfect place to stash a key.
A simple spray-down with bug spray can mean the difference between post-race bliss and an itchy nightmare. Try this organic spray, made from a blend of rosemary, citronella and wintergreen essential oils.
