MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MO. (KTVI) - Marathons are starting to heat up this spring, and Big River Running has gear and tips.
Gear for long-distance runs is not just for covering and comfort. It can also be protective. Big River carries clothing with reflectivity, so that drivers can see and avoid runners. Some pieces even have UV protection.
Big River's Kristen Jorgensen said distance runners need to visit a specialty retail store to find all the gear that will keep them comfortable, safe and in the race.
She added this minimum list of accessories runners will need for race day.
1 - Sunscreen
2 - Body glide
