Being out in the sun for a couple of hours is all you need to start the process of serious sun damage, and with the Spartathlon being held in Greece in September when temperatures are still in the 30s, the British team needs all the protection it can get.
Which is why the team would like to thank top sun protection brand Ultrasun for sponsoring our runners with adequate protection.
Ultrasun’s sports specific range is a one-application-a-day product that should be applied inside about 30 minutes before exposure to the sun.
In 2015 GPS tracking website www.RaceDrone.net have offered to sponsor the UK Spartathlon team, by offering each runner use of a mini GPS tracker to during the event, so their friends, family and supporters, both in Greece and a home can follow their progress in the race.
More details on the trackers can be found on the GPS device hire website at www.eventstracking.com and information about the tracking website itself at www.racedrone.net
