Summer Running Must-Haves

UltrAspire Handheld Water Bottle

An easy and convenient way to stay hydrated on your summer runs is carrying a handheld water bottle with you. There are lots of handheld options out there, but the angled shape of UltrAspire bottles makes drinking easier, and there’s a pocket for keys, Gu or whatever else you need to take along with you on your run.

CEP Compression Socks

Recovery is one of the most important components of your training. As your training runs get longer over the summer in preparation for fall marathons, invest in a pair of CEP Compression Socks to help accelerate your recovery. Wearing compression socks after a long run helps your muscles to recover faster and more efficiently.


It’s important to stay hydrated year-round, but especially in the summer. With virtually zero calories or sugar, Nuun gives you all of your electrolytes without the additives of Gatorade or Powerade. Just drop a Nuun tablet in your water bottle, and you’re good to go.


Having problems with chafing on your runs? Pick up some BodyGlide—it creates a wax barrier on your skin to protect against chafing and friction. Plus it’s invisible and doesn’t smell or stain your clothing. Trust us–it can be a runner’s best friend in the summer.

Sweaty Bands

Ladies, Sweaty Bands are the perfect way to keep your hair out of your face in the summer. They come in a wide variety of colors, patterns, and widths, and the best part is that they don’t slip off your head!

Balega Socks

It’s always important to wear good socks when running, but even more so in the summer when you sweat more. Remember cotton expands and bunches up when wet, but synthetic socks like Balega will help wick away sweat, keeping your feet dry and preventing blisters.
