Posted on

We love seeing pictures of you putting our kit through a sweat test.

Thanks to Eliot Challifour for this picture of himself ahead of the start line of Lakes in a Day.

There isn't much more gruelling sweat test as Lakes in a Day - a huge Ultra run that took place on 10th October. 50 miles, 4000m ascent - a journey on foot from the very top of the Lake District at Caldbeck to the very bottom, at Cartmel, via the stunning Helvellyn Ridge and the western shoreline of Lake Windermere.

Eliot finished 11th out of a field of 300, in a time of 11h46mins. Eliot trusted in our red long sleeve running top and shorts and was delighted: "the Tribesports clothing performed exceptionally well and was comfortable from the start to the finish of the race helping me maintain an optimal temperature in the mountains."

Thanks also to Martyn Holman who shared this blog post with us. Martyn also tackled the course in our long sleeve running top and running tights and finished in a fantastic 167th place. His blog post also gives a brilliant account of the day from a first time Ultra runner perspective and is a great read.

At Tribesports we produce high performance, high quality running clothing to keep you comfortable, leaving you free to concentrate on your run - whether that is a 5k parkrun or a 50 mile Ultra across the Lakes!

Where have you sweat tested Tribesports kit, and how did you get on?
