Tommie Copper Giveaway

Our Reach the Beach team has some AMAZING sponsors, seriously for someone who loves compression gear I am a very, very happy runner!

In addition to Aspaeris Pivot Shorts, for the ladies on the team, and PRO Compression socks, our team is also sponsored by Tommie Copper.  We each were offered a pair of sleeves, a compression shirt or shorts, I went with the knee sleeves and Mike went with the shorts.

It's no secret that I already love Tommie Copper and you can read my review about the calf sleeves, here.

 Around 10 miles, I pity those two ladies for not having sleeves

 At the finish

I wore my calf sleeves for our marathon on Sunday and I really do think that they are the reason that I barely had any lower leg soreness the day after.

Now for the fun part, a giveaway!

The lovely folks at Tommie Copper have generously offered to give one lucky reader a pair of sleeves (calf, knee, elbow, ankle).  All you need to do is enter the Rafflecopter giveaway and the sleeves could be yours! The giveaway will remain open until October 10 and I will announce the winner on October 11.

Tommie Copper provided us each with one pair of sleeves, shirt or shorts at no cost as part of their sponsorship of our Reach the Beach team. In addition, they are providing one pair of sleeves to one winner.  All opinions expressed in this post are, as always, my own.

  12. I love Tommie Copper!! I wear the shirt to bed every night for my shoulder and upper back soreness and I have worn the knee sleeve on my knee when it was sore and it really helped...I think that I would love the calf sleeves..even though I don't have lower leg problems it would be great to see if it makes them feel more refreshed!! I hope that I WIN!!!!

  13. Hey Jamie!
    Oddly, I haven't tried any compression gear yet! I'm thinking with where I get the most sore and feel it after long runs, that the women's compression shorts would help with the hip pain I get! But not really sure how it all works anyways!
    Funny enough, I did a half marathon on Sunday and had a really tough mental race too. Glad to read that you finished and it only wants you to run stronger for the next one! That's my plan!!

  15. I already have two pairs of calf sleeves so I would go with the knee sleeve. I am ramping up my mileage for my first marathon amd have slight twinges in my knee from lifting/hills so i believe this would help!

  16. I LOVE LOVE LOVE compression socks & sleeves and would love an extra pair!

  17. I have never tried sleeves before, so the calf sleeves look like the ones I would want to go with. It's good to see the other options if there is any type of injury going on (knee, ankle, elbow, etc). Thanks! I've never heard of this company, glad I know now! :)

    1. My calves are always stiff and although THE STICK does help...I think the compression sleeves would be preventative.
