London Marathon & Running Sunglasses

April 2018

London marathon logo

The London Marathon is hitting the streets of London this weekend. It’s a 26.2 mile race, starting south of the Thames near Greenwich, passing by the Cutty Sark and Surrey Quays before it crosses over the Thames at Tower Bridge. From here it continues through central London before finishing outside Buckingham Palace.

The 2018 London Marathon is set to be the hottest on record with temperatures possibly reaching 24’c, surpassing 2007 that topped out at 22.2’c.

Why Should Runners Wear Sunglasses?

Runners often take precautions when running in the sun, be that wearing a cap, covering exposed skin with sunscreen and ensuring they stay hydrated. But many still neglect their eyes. Wearing sunglasses when running does far more than just protect your eyes from harmful rays. Wearing sunglasses can play a big part in your overall posture and therefore comfort when running. If you squint when running you’re tensing muscles in your face and neck unnecessarily, therefore putting strain on your muscles and altering your posture.

Being relaxed when running can also make breathing much easier, therefore helping to improve performance and reduce fatigue.

Oakley EVZero Stride Sunglasses

The EVZero is the lightest frame in the Oakley range. The frame front was removed to not only optimise weight but maximise the peripheral views offered by the design. The Stride lens shape offers this iconic frame but in a size that is more suited to smaller faces.

The Tifosi Mira is the curvier sister of the Tifosi Just. Making it yet another exceptional multi-purpose sports model. The slightly more curved lens gives it a much more refined look to the just, whilst maintaining the style and comfort. Performance is withheld due to the vented, polycarbonate lenses. A super lightweight frame means it won’t prove hassle on even the longest runs.
