dryrobe comes to New England

It’s February, and I’ve just finished my one lap of the Polar Bear Challenge at Shale Hill, and it’s f’in freezing.

It’s October, and I’m at OCR World Championships. It’s 7:30am, and I’ve shown up early to see the elite team competition on the Sunday. I didn’t bring too much warm clothing.

And it’s f’in freezing.

At Polar Bear, Margaret of Dirt in your Skirt puts on a dryrobe, and it’s the first time I’ve ever seen one in real world use.

At OCR World Championships, the Europeans have been walking around in their dryrobes all weekend, and at 7:30am, when it’s 30some degrees, I really *really* want one.

They’re expanding – after years on the EU scene, with fell running, surfing, swimming and other outdoor sports backgrounds – they’re now getting into OCR. We’re seriously behind the ball, here in the US – they’ve been all over the UK scene for a few years now, and even big brands like Tough Mudder are in on the dryrobe game.

So – we’re please to offer them up to the New England Spahtens – and at a fantastic 20% off retail. Seriously, thats a killer price, for a killer product.

What is a dryrobe, anyway? Born in the UK surfing scene …
