UYN Community Face Mask, Tried and Tested

What a strange world we are living in. People wandering around in face masks on is becoming a more and more common sight. However, running in a mask can be a completely different affair. Steaming up glasses, sweaty faces and struggling to breath are just a few issues you can run into. Well we have started stocking UYN Community sports face masks, greeted with some great feedback. So we asked our friends over Our Running Revolution to try one and see how they got on. The UYN masks are highly breathable, quick drying and have an ergonomic fit to help wrap smoothly round your face. Perfect for staying safe while out exercising, going to the gym or just popping to the shops. They might even be mandatory at certain races, this is already happening in certain countries.

Carly and Paddy took the mask for a test run to see how they got on. Apparently they kept getting funny looks, have no idea why?


Carly’s initial thoughts after running in it for 5KM:

“You can’t wear glasses with any mask, so they had to go. They just fog up. I tend to be a bit naturally claustrophobic, so it took a little settling into, but during easy running it was actually alright. However, any effort, hill or speed, and I felt the lack of easily available oxygen so had to reduce my requirement for it to avoid sucking the fabric into my mouth. Although I did feel a bit warm under it, it didn’t get soggy and it was comfy on my ears and face”

“There was a suggestion that I looked like I was running with pink knickers on my face!”

Carly has an age group place for this year London Marathon so it going to continue to keep wearing it in case she has to wear them at any point.
