In the context of Covid-19 spreading rapidly, people are recommended to wash their hands frequently, wear masks and do not gather in large numbers. In places that have been loosened or blocked, many runners continue to maintain the habit of jogging on deserted roads, keeping a minimum distance of 2 m with people around, not running in groups and keeping masks..

Dianette Wells - running leg of The Planet Atacama Crossing - made a 7-day journey on the Chilean desert with a tube. According to female athletes, sewing accessories made of thin, breathable, highly elastic technical fabric are very handy. "Without a tissue, I wouldn't consider climbing to the top of a snowy mountain, racing through the jungle or running through the desert," she said.
Hardrock 100 champion - female athlete Darcy Piceu - also used the habit of using a tube when competing and practicing. With American running legs, the accessory can be worn on the head to keep warm in the pass, or add more headlights when running at night without causing discomfort.
