Marathon Essentials

Welcome to The Edge Sports Shop! If you've ever dreamt of conquering a marathon, you've come to the right place. We're here to guide you through the exciting journey of marathon training and provide you with the essential gear you'll need to achieve your running goals.

Marathon Training Essentials:

  1. Running Shoes: The foundation of your marathon journey starts with the right pair of running shoes. Our experienced staff can perform gait analysis to help you find the perfect fit for your running style and needs.

  2. Apparel: Comfort is key during long training runs. Choose moisture-wicking and breathable running clothing that suits the weather conditions. We offer a wide selection of running shorts, tops, and tights designed to keep you comfortable mile after mile.

  3. Hydration: Staying hydrated is crucial during marathon training. Explore our range of hydration packs, belts, and handheld bottles to keep you fueled and refreshed on your long runs.

  4. Nutrition: Proper nutrition fuels your training. From energy gels and chews to electrolyte drinks, we have a variety of nutrition products to help you maintain your energy levels during those lengthy training sessions.

  5. Training Accessories: Consider tools like GPS watches to track your progress, foam rollers for post-run recovery, and compression socks to reduce muscle fatigue.

Race Day Essentials:

  1. Race Outfit: Choose a comfortable and moisture-wicking race outfit that you've trained in and feel confident wearing. Don't forget to pin your bib securely to your shirt.

  2. Running Belt or Race Vest: On race day, you'll want a convenient way to carry essentials like gels, keys, and your phone. Our selection of running belts and race vests offers various options to fit your needs.

  3. Footwear: Stick with the trusted pair of running shoes you've tried and tested. Make sure they're in good condition and broken in for race day.

  4. Race Nutrition: Pack your favorite energy gels or chews to fuel your race. Be sure to follow the race's hydration and nutrition plan if provided.

  5. Body Glide or Anti-Chafe Cream: Prevent chafing and discomfort by applying body glide or anti-chafe cream to areas prone to rubbing.

  6. Positive Mindset: Mental preparation is just as important as physical readiness. Stay positive, set achievable goals, and trust in your training.
