What to Look For in Running Sunglasses


When you’re racing down Carlsbad Boulevard, you want a pair of frames that will help you — not distract you. A lightweight frame material will feel great for the entire half marathon, so you can focus on putting one foot in front of the other.

In addition, rubber grips on the temples and nose pads will keep your frames in place — while also providing optical alignment.


Keep clear of glass lensesas they’re heavier and more likely to shatter while you run. Lightweight and impact-resistant lenses are a better choice. Additionally, features that keep the lenses clear — oleophobic, hydrophobic, anti-reflective, and hard coatingsare essential during long-distance runs.
