What To Wear To Run The Marathon?

25 March 2010

You may have heard, Team Grazia will be running the London Marathon this year (gulp! What have we let ourselves in for?) – led off the starting blocks by our editor Jane, and deputy editor Marianne, who’re raising funds for Amnesty International (see below, for how to donate).

With little over a month before D-day, it’s marathon central in the Grazia office: with talk of PB’s and energy gels a hotter topic of conversation then ‘who’s Jen dating’.

But, don’t worry, we’re not neglecting the fashionista within and have put a lot of thought into out race day outfits.

Whether, like us, you’ve got 26miles of cobbles ahead of you, or are just embarking on a new fitness phase (bikini season isn’t that far away) Virgin’s 2010 marathon range of sports gear designed by adidas is not only super comfortable but (miraculously for lycra) flattering… Check it out here.

We road-tested the supernova shorts (warning: they are very short – but have built in knickers, to spare your blushes) and ‘shimmel’ vest top this morning (which we’d happily wear for non-sporting activities) and give both the thumbs up!

Certainly beats navy PE knickers…
