Bag Balm, the tried and true moisturizing treatment from Vermont's own Northeast Kingdom, has come aboard to provide skin salvation for this year's Vermont City Marathon! 

Started in 1900, Bag Balm has been soothing the skin of Vermont residents and many others for over 115 years, receiving high marks from those who have used it, from farmers to ultra runners.

"I have used Bag Balm in most of my ultra marathons and have found that it works better than the traditional products that are out there for runners…I have used it extensively and have had no side effects. I can only say good things about it. If chafing is a problem for you and other methods do not seem to work, I would recommend using Bag Balm." - Dallan M.

Bag Balm features two main active ingredients, Petrolatum (the main component of Vaseline) for moisturizing, and Lanolin to soften skin, and many athletes swear by it, not only for running induced irritation, but also for dry and cracked skin, chapped lips, and windburn.
