Best type of underwear for running?


Question:Hey guys - i'm always having trouble with my boxers bunching up in my thighs and then I get rashes after a few miles into my runs.
What's the best type of underwear that I should wear? Oh, have my first half-marathon in two weeks so i don't want to have to worry about all of that stuff. Thanks in advance!

Answers:

Track!! What are some good pointers for the long jump?

the best thing is compression shorts. but you don't need to go out and buy expensive nike or under armor. just go to a wal mart or something like that and pick up some off brand ones. they work just as well and cost much less. hope that helps.

get compression shorts. Nike and under armour makes them. http://www.underarmour.com/productdetail...

My Mile time?

I would say that you should wear absolutely nothing, but try a pair of baggy, big, loose shorts with a belt around it. this would keep you from sweating and get tired and not get rashes. Or you could wear your underwear and rub alcohol. Rub the alcohol 30 minutes before you start to run.

When timing a mile run time, is the tredmil as accurate as the track?

the one that will hold your but well, so that it doesnt wobble or irritate you! if thats what you like just wear nothing but if your going to wear something go to a underwear sjop and buy something with a lot of support/ strong material

Do in-ear headphones or headphones with hooks to go behind your ears work better for running?

I would go with either boxer briefs, or just straight breifs and then wear a pair of compression shorts. I even have a pair of sliding shorts from baseball that work really well to prevent the rashes you mentioned.
