Whether you’re training for the next race, trying to beat your personal record, or out for a casual jog, running sunglasses are an essential piece to our favorite minimalist sport. Don’t let a bouncing, slipping frame break your stride – or focus. At SportRx, we only offer the best running sunglasses that work as hard as you do. And if you have prescription needs, our prescription running sunglasses will put the finish line in focus, while you’ve got your eyes on the prize.
When selecting running sunglasses, there are two main factors to keep in mind: frame material and lens technology. If you want a complete breakdown of both, and which options are best for running, check out our Running Sunglasses Buyer's Guide. For a quick summary, we’ve got you covered below.
Running glasses should be lightweight, provide generous coverage, and have extra grip to prevent slippage, even on your sweatiest days. A secure fit is essential to prevent the dreaded bounce and making sure your running sunglasses stay perfectly in place.
As for lenses, polycarbonate is the way to go when you’re on the move. More lightweight and impact-resistant than glass, polycarbonate lenses will keep you comfortable for those long-distance runs. The lens color will depend on your terrain so take a look at our Running Sunglasses Lens Color Guide to find your perfect match!
