Ashley Wickman, who won the 2015 Kansas City Marathon among women, models some of the latest running gear: Brooks Run-Thru Hat ($22) and Tifosi Slip sunglasses ($69.99), from KC Running Company, protect the eyes from sweat and sun. A Run 816 singlet ($36) and Saucony Impulse shorts ($48), both from Run 816, wick sweat away from the body. Garmin’s VivoActive HR smartwatch ($249.99) has GPS and measures your heart rate from your wrist so you don’t have to wear a chest strap. Zensah compression arm sleeves ($35, Run 816) can be pulled off, without breaking stride, once temperatures warm up. Aspire Swiftwick socks ($35.99, KC Running Company) compress the lower legs to keep blood circulating during and after the race. The Nathan Mercury 2 fuel belt ($40, KC Running Company) carries fluids, energy packets and keys.
