The research shows that the participation level in marathons has increased 13 percent over the last year. Clearly suggesting that organizing marathons is an ‘in’ thing today. Gaining popularity over the years, even in the third-world country, they are organized all over the world. Although each for different purposes.
People run a marathon for many reasons. To prove their worth, to feed their ego by winning, for any noble cause, or the most popular one- to stay fit. Reasons are plenty, and so are numbers of marathon gears.
Today all the top clothing manufacturers are very careful to what material goes in the clothes, meant for marathon runners. They are more considerate to people’s needs, convenience and other requirements. Using the best fabrics, they manufacture some of the best marathon clothes to appease their consumers.
Every business’ one of the first priority is their customers’ satisfaction. But unless they know what are those customers’ demands and requirements in the first place, ‘satisfaction’ would nothing more but a wish and dream. So to content their customers, the businesses- suppliers, wholesalers, or retailers, have to stock up the best marathon shirts, shoes, socks and the overall kit.
Prepare for every season – Marathons are thrown all around the season. Cold, summer, as well as monsoon. Different season means different clothing requirements for the marathon participants.
For hot days, runners usually prefer vests made of technical fabrics, like CoolMax. These fabrics absorb the sweats and vaporize them more easily and quickly. Plus the spandex shorts go along well with these vests. In the cold, chilly and rainy days, these runners choose long sleeve thermal t-shirts or waterproof jacket or both. For bottoms, a comfy knee length Capri or even the full length comfy and stretchable- for easy movements, trousers would do perfectly.
Also, the businesses have to be considerate of the average temperature of the region that they are targeting, or providing the gears to. Chances are those places in mountain regions would have less temperature, despite the seasons, comparatively to other places.
They are the runners. And they require the world’s best marathon running shoes, and the best marathon running socks.
The shoes needs to be very light and of that standard size that fits perfectly in all dimensions of the feet. It should have a right and proportionate amount of cushions, so as to soothes the landing every time without hurting the runner’s ankle bones. Plus, its grip has to be strong enough to hold the them from falling. Same goes for the socks- made of comfiest and best material, that works well with one’s feet sweats, is the only preferred choice.
So when storing your warehouses with marathon running gears, don’t think much. But don’t think any less either. Buy the bulk from the best manufacturer, and stock your trove with only the best clothes. Anything less than that, and you are in for a downfall.
