Where to buy Body Glide in Canada?

Just wondering if I would find it at Walmart, or should I try to get it online?

I don't shop at Walmart, but I doubt you could get it there, as it's a running specialty item. We buy it at running shops like New Balance. Maybe Sport Chek?

Good luck, Tiger

The Running Room and Sport Chek should have it. Try BodyGlide's store locator here: http://hosted.where2getit.com/bodyglide/

I bought ours at the running room... just stumbled upon it really! I had read about it on here but had never seen it. Once I saw it, I knew I had to pick it up!

It is used to prevent blisters and chafing. It looks like a deoderant stick. You can "glide" it over your feet and between your toes to prevent blisters and hot spots from shoes. Some women will also use it on their thighs to prevent chafing from rubbing. Works like a charm.

You use it anywhere you get irritation or heat rash or blisters from all that walking. I use it on my legs if I wear short shorts. I don't have huge thighs but my skin is super sensitive and if my legs rub AT ALL when I am already hot and sweaty, I get huge welts and blisters all up and down my legs. Body Glide makes that not happen! I also use it on my feet and under my bra straps.

I bought mine on Amazon for cheaper than in the store. I just waited until I needed to order more stuff so that I could get free shipping. Otherwise, I did find it in sporting goods stores, but I'm not in Canada.

I don't live in Canada, but I got mine slightly discounted on eBay. They have travel size ones on eBay as well.

Yep. Did the Vancouver Marathon on 5/1, which was perfectly timed for our DCL Alaskan cruise on 5/3. Stopped by a Running Room store while wandering around the city and bought a stick there.
