Choosing the Right CW-X Gear for Spring Marathons

Running in warmer weather presents unique challenges, from managing overheating to handling increased sweat production. CW-X clothing addresses these issues with innovative features tailored to enhance comfort in any weather condition as your race approaches.


Temperature Regulation

CW-X clothing excels at keeping runners cool in the heat yet warm when the number on the thermometer drops. The brand's tights are made with WarmStretch temperature-regulation fabric to maintain a constant surface temperature, ensuring you won't be losing any time from your workout due to overheating or being too cold.


Moisture-Wicking Capabilities

One of the standout features of CW-X gear is its exceptional moisture-wicking capabilities. The breathable fabric quickly pulls sweat away from the body, keeping runners dry and comfortable even during intense workouts or long-distance runs, an essential when pushing through that final mile.


UV Protection 

The sunshine that comes with spring and summer can be both a blessing and a challenge for runners, bringing up the increased risk of sunburn and UV exposure. Much of CW-X clothing offers built-in UV protection, shielding outdoor adventurers from harmful rays so they can focus on their performance without worrying about sun damage or painful sunburn.

Featured CW-X Gear for Marathon Runners

When it comes to selecting the best CW-X gear for spring marathons, runners have several standout options to choose from, ranging from shorts and tights to sports bras.


CW-X Endurance Generator Short

Ideal for longer races like marathons, these shorts offer compression to stabilize muscles and improve circulation, reducing muscle fatigue and speeding up recovery. It’s available for men and women, features updated technology including a durable fabric as well as CW-X's patented EXO-WEB support panel, which uses the benefits of kinesiology tape to provide stability to joints, which can take a beating on long runs.

These shorts, in variations for both men and women, are a spring essential, offering targeted support and ventilation to keep runners cool and comfortable. The Ventilator panels allow for airflow, while the Stabilyx technology provides compression to support muscles and joints, reducing fatigue and enhancing performance for even the toughest training sessions.


CW-X Xtra Support High Impact Sports Bra

Finding the right sports bra can be the difference between setting a personal record or calling a run off early. This high impact bra features targeted SUPPORT-WEB technology that uses mesh webbing built into the cups, minimizing bounce and providing support through even intense sweat sessions.

Layering Tips for Unpredictable Spring Weather

Every runner knows that spring weather can be unpredictable, often with sudden temperature changes and unexpected rain showers. Layering is key to staying prepared for whatever the forecast may bring.


CW-X Gear as a Base Layer

Wearing CW-X tights or shorts as a base layer is a smart strategy for managing varying temperatures and weather conditions. The compression technology provides support and stability, while the moisture-wicking fabric keeps runners dry and comfortable throughout their run.


Completing Your Layering

While CW-X shorts and tights can be worn on their own, consider adding extra pants when the temperature calls for it. Dress in several layers on top as well, knowing you can always tie a sweatshirt or jacket around your waist if it gets too warm. You may also want to consider a hat or gloves, which can easily be removed and placed in pockets if not necessary.
