Product Review: Mission Athletecare- Anti-Chafe

Product Review: Mission Athletecare- Anti-Chafe

Last summer after the worst chafing I’ve ever experienced I decided to try Mission Athletecare’s Anti-chafe stick.  I promised I would let you know how it went so here is the review a mere 10 months later…

This review will be brief.  I love it! I put it on before almost all my training runs and before all my races (including my last 4 marathons) and it is perfect!  I recommend buying the stick version over the cream because it is less messy and it glides on like deodorant.

I usually buy it online through Amazon because it offers the best price I’ve seen ($8.79) and you can get free with Amazon super saver shipper (qualifying orders of $25 or more).  I usually order 2 or 3 at a time to stock up.  You will not want to run out of this stuff!  You can also find it at many running stores .

I put this on before any run more than 5 miles (which is most runs- especially during marathon training).  I find that the times I am especially prone to chafing are:

  • Any long run but ESPECIALLY marathons
  • Runs outside in the heat of summer
  • Runs outside in the rain

The areas I am more prone to chafing are:

  • inner thighs
  • under my sports bra line
  • underarms

The recent humidity on my morning runs this week reminded me of my chafing incident from last summer so I thought this would be a good time to review this product.

What is your favorite anti-chafing product?

  1. I’ve had a couple of excruciating chafing episodes. Same spots as you but my under-bust one is usually caused by my HR monitor strap. I use body glide and it works pretty well as long as I remember to lather up all the chafe-prone zones.

  2. Thanks for this review, Tia! I’ve never used an anti-chafing product because I had never chafed before, until a humid run last summer. Now I’m wondering what I should look into for this year- good to know you liked it!
