Moisture-wicking fabrics are one of the most helpful innovations in sports equipment in recent decades. The clammy cotton t-shirt is a thing of the past. No matter what your event, invest in a few moisture-wicking shirts, shorts, and pants. They are more expensive than a basic t-shirt, but wash these clothes in cold water with a mild detergent and they will last for years. Don't forget socks; moisture-wicking socks keep your feet drier than cotton and significantly reduce the risk of blisters.
