When distances start getting on the long side, chafe becomes a serious problem when running and cycling. A liberal application of Wintergreen Anti-Chafe Cream will solve this problem.
I experienced serious chafe in the 2013 PUFfeR and have since been careful to avoid a repeat of the agony I was in by the time I started descending Platteklip Gorge! Apart from the obvious direct pain, the discomfort is mentally draining and can affect your form as you try to avoid chafing the “hotspots” further.
I carried some of the handy little screw-top tubs pictured below in my back pocket for IronMan 2014 to do touch ups. Yes, in public: the only thing less glamorous than shoving your hand down your shorts and massaging cream into your private bits is having same bits rubbed raw!
