/ Anyone use Zinc Oxide tape which actually sticks?
Does anyone know of a good brand of tape, which will stay stuck for more than an hour?
I find the stuff at super drug best, it is a much finer weave than the Boots stuff, tearable and very sticky.
Strappal again - far and away the stickiest
Can't you just use climbing finger tape
Try cleaning area with an alcoholic wipe before hand
I used to use this stuff under the tape, as I struggled to get it to stick regularly
It's kind of tacky and sticks to itself, but a bit of tape will hold it together. Wrap it around your foot like a bandage. You only need one wrap.
On this stuff, any cheap tape will stick and you don't have to worry about ripping hair out afterwords.

I did try that first, but it came off on my longer runs.
Strappal is really good. If you plan to get your feet wet or if you will be going for a long time then put it on the day before so that it kind of sets. The longer it is on before the event the better it will stick. Be careful removing it afterwards.
