Your face gets burned and you’ve got sand on your lips? The High UV Buff as face mask is a favourite around Ultra Marathon runners

A desert is super hot & dry. On top there is no shade from the sun relentlessly frying you. Add some possible sandstorm and you get a feel what a desert marathon puts up on challenges.

Participants of the Marathon Des Sables have been using the Original & the High UV Buff® to cope with these challenges in various ways.

The most popular is the face mask.
Sun burning your skin away. 95% UV blockage gives you additional skin cancer protection.
Sweat running down your head and into your eyes. The fabric turns that sweat into heat relief.
Sand blowing around. The fabric can filter sand out whilst staying fully breathable.

This photo was taken during the 2003 Marathon des Sables. The Buff® shown is the Original Buff®. Today I strongly recommend the High UV Buff® for this event. More cooling and the UV protection that the Original Buff® misses.

Recommend Designs

The design pictured is a custom run for the Marathon Des Sables. Look for similar colours. Not too light. If you are a heavy sweater I recommend going darker with the colour. The darker the more evaporates.
