I mean like cyclists
Do they? They have to look good on modern wide screen HD TV.
Some of the women might.
Maybe not the Eastern Europeans?
(if I'm allowed a slightly out-of-date, probably unfounded sweeping stereotype)
Cyclists do it to make the post ride rub down easier, suppose the same coule be said for athletes

The answer is if u r a man, no. Really isn't debatable!
Use cream to remove it.
Its for massage reasons plus road rash reasons. Biggest reason it just looks dammed good.
I thought cyclists also shaved their legs so that bandages and scabs are less painful to remove after crashes. Would hope that's not so much of an issue for runners unless you're particularly accident-prone.
But when they retire, do they end up with legs like wookies'?
Didn't Andre Agassi remove all his body hair before winning Wimbledon? I always wondered why he did that, but then it turned out he was on crystal meth
If you start out looking like a wookie then maybe shaving has an advantage.
