What to Wear

Subscribe to BriefingRunning in the winter in San Antonio can be tricky! Winter has arrived (most days), and you're wondering how to dress. Some days you go out for a long run and the weather changes while you're running. At the start of the run it's 70 degrees, but a cold front comes in, and by the end of the run it is 40 degrees!

The key to running comfortably in Texas is based on a few simple rules:

  1. Dress like it is 15 – 20 degrees warmer than it actually is outside. You may feel chilly while standing around at the starting line, but you will start warming up as you begin to run.
  2. The more adaptable the clothing is the better. Layers of clothing trap and warm the air between them acting as insulation.
  3. Wet clothing can conduct heat away from the body, so wear clothing made from wicking materials that will keep you dry.
  4. Wear simple articles that you can take off while you run, like a vest, or arm sleeves that are easy to carry if you need to take them off.

Keep an eye on the forecast and dress accordingly.
A comfortable run is a good run!
