I saw a guy doing very well in a half marathon this weekend wearing a Polo shirt and what looked like beach shorts. They seemed just as fast as any other shorts. Sub 90. And plenty of pockets for gels, sun tan lotion etc etc. Prob about a fiver from Asda.

I love people like this.

I'm going to use masking tape and stick gels to my shorts at Brighton so if you see me then do cheer me on as I am a newb

The north face better than naked shorts have two brilliant back cargo pockets and a rear zip pocket. I love them, they're a lovely length and are very high quality. However you do pay for this.

masking tape ??!!! That won't last 2 minutes. Duct tape maybe. 

+1 for Ronhil Trail Cargo. I don't know how I ever managed without them.

I'd love to hear how Roberto got on with his making tape.

Did a half marathon yesterday and a few miles in there was a race number on the floor that someone had tried to tape to their shirt, just a little got of tape on each corner. I expect the gels would have ended up the same way.

Hi All,

Masking tape on the shorts didn't stick too well so in the end I stuffed gels and block shots into my arm phone holder thing and masking taped more onto the outside of the phone holder window. That worked fine.

I've now got a triathlon race number belt with gel loop holder things so gonna try that next for a long run 

The masking take thing was from taking bananas to my bike on the L2B, that didn't work so well either. Going to get proper pockets and holders from now on
