Prevention, not cure

I am running 150 miles in Morocco next month and need advice on what products are available to reduce chaffing between my legs? I know I sweet loads and I know I get sores between my legs. I will use EasyGlide but I also would like to take something to stick over these worry areas in order to prevent sores occurring.

Lycra shorts ?

Now, I am by no means an expert on such matters but I think I saw somewhere that you shouldn't lube chafe-prone areas because if they attract sand you've got a REAL chafing problem. Better to cover them instead.

Under armour compression pants do the trick form me.

I wear them under some lightweight running shorts (I always cut out the inner lining)

I find easy glide a waste of time. Vaseline is best, with a decent pair of under/compression shorts
