In response to the NCS4 release of the Marathon Safety and Security Best Practices Guide, we have come up with a synopsis on how Heatsheets products have continued to be an innovative resource in the safety and security of endurance events, such as marathons. In two areas, weather and safety, Heatsheets products have continued to meet the demand of the needs of marathons and have continued to adapt to various situations.
When hosting a marathon, you never know what the weather might do and how it may affect the runners. Our products protect against rain, wind, heat and cold making them resist against the weather and proactive with regulating body temperatures of the runners in any situation. This is due to our Silver Lining Technology, originally developed by NASA, which reflects up to 90 percent the user’s body heat back to the user. We also supply products called Flip It™, which becomes a heat reflector, directing sunlight away from racers and helping their bodies cool off. Rain or shine, cold or warm, Heatsheets products will have your race prepared for all circumstances.
With the race industry dealing with new and heighten threats every year, new rules and regulations will begin to be set in place. The Boston Marathon is a prime example when they installed a no bag policy. With this change, we adapted our product in order for the runners to be hands-free with the Heatsheets Cape, making it easier for them to grab his or her belongs and easier for security personal to monitor what people are carrying. The Heatsheets Cape allow events to provide an attractive, protecting product to athletes in a form factor that takes up an incredibly small amount of post-race real estate.
