Kit lists

The kit below is compulsory and you will be checked and prevented from running if you do not have the correct kit.  This is the standard kit list you'll find for most trail races so we hope that it's things that you either have already, or will get plenty of use out of.  We'd strongly recommend wearing appropriate trail shoes for these events.

Please note: All of our races are cupless.  This is to reduce our impact on the planet.
