Tips For Running In Hot Weather

Here are tips to help you enjoy your run in hot weather and also keep you safe.


You need to be drinking more water than normal to replace the fluids you lose in hot weather.


Remember to put sunscreen on your arms and legs, not just your face. Skin cancer on the leg can be common in outdoor runners.

Sunrise Run

Try to beat some of the heat by getting up and starting your run before sunrise.

Running Sunglasses

Invest in a good pair of running sunglasses. They are made to not fog up or slide around.


Chaffing is common in hot weather because of the extra sweat. Apply Vaseline or Body Glide to areas that rub on clothing to avoid it.


Don't be afraid to hit the treadmill when it is just too hot outside. Be safe.
