If there is one thing we learned from the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, it is that fall weather is unpredictable. Wherever the barometer lies, the management of body temperature is a crucial piece of endurance event safety that all participants — and even spectators – should keep in mind.
Heatsheets products strive to protect the human body from temperature-related injuries. While we’re typically front-of-mind when it comes to post-race warming solutions, Heatsheets have also been demonstrated to be effective as a post-race cooling tool for warm weather events—like the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.
For warm weather races, Heatsheets can simply be flipped (silver side out) becoming a heat reflector, directing sunlight away from the racers helping their bodies steadily cool off. If you viewed any photos from the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, you saw this was true. Many racers chose to flip their Heatsheets to help cool-down.
We were thrilled our product was able to help runner’s recovery steadily after the marathon. Congratulations again to all the runners on a successful race!
