Running Face Masks and Gaiters

To help slow or prevent the spread of COVID-19, the CDC recommends wearing cloth face masks in public when you'll be around other people. These face masks for running are made with activity in mind.

Face masks with elastic ear loops help hold the covering up to your face for a more secure fit, and soft fabrics make them more comfortable to wear. Shop face masks at Fleet Feet, and stay safe when you head out of the house.

About Face Masks

In combination with social distancing, the Centers for Disease Control recommends wearing face masks when it might be hard to stay six feet apart, like at the grocery store or in other gatherings.

The CDC says cloth face masks or other coverings help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by stopping respiratory droplets that contain the virus from entering the air when you exhale.

The CDC recommends anyone older than 2 years of age wear a face mask when in a public setting where distancing is difficult. Although, CDC recommendations make an exception for children younger than 2 years old and anyone who has difficulty breathing.

Masks for Running

Running face masks are made for high-output activities. Cut from technical fabrics, face masks for running are stretchy, lightweight and breathable. The technical materials help wick sweat away from your skin, and they dry quickly to keep you comfortable.

The snug fit ensures your breath doesn't escape from the sides of the mask, and breathable, two-layer designs let you breathe easily while still protecting yourself and others.

Like all your reusable masks, masks for running should be washed regularly. The CDC recommends washing your masks in with you regular laundry.

How to Wear a Face Mask

To ensure the health and safety of yourself and others, the CDC recommends a short checklist for wearing a mask properly:

  • Wash your hands before putting on your face covering
  • Put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
  • Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face
  • Make sure you can breathe easily
