    Hi Folks,

    We're off to NYC Marathon in November and considering running in costume and raising money for charity. Thinking Superman & Wonderwoman....

    Any recommendations for one that are comfortable to run in? Any tips for running in costume?

    Many thanks in advance

    In the kids' section of Sports Direct a few weeks ago there were heavily-discounted Black Panther, Captain America and various other superhero items in which you could run. Well, if you could find an adult size version.

    I wouldn't waste NY on scratchy, bleed-inducing costumes. Instead look around for some of the irony-free but not uncomfortable options re compression wear with gaudy superhero themes.

    If you were a Star Wars nerd you could be Darth Vader or a Stormtrooper but your other half would object to much of the limited options for women in that theme.
