Most events specify items that ALL COMPETITORS must carry and that ALL TEAMS must carry. We have broken this list down into this.
Each competitor must usually carry:
Rucksack - Capable of carrying all the kit outlined below
Survival Bag – a Bag NOT a Space Blanket.
Some events will ask you to carry spare baselayers (top and bottoms) in addition those you intend to run in.
Socks inc. a spare pair - Its worth taking a couple for the overnight camp.
Torch - (suitable for emergency night navigation with useable light lasting at least 12hrs)
Mobile phone for safety purposes
Each team must carry the following at all times:
Tent - with sewn in groundsheet, poles and pegs
Stove & fuel, matches/lighter – with Emergency fuel remaining at the end of Day 2
Food for 2 days including your Emergency food which you will still have with you when you finish Day 2. If you have eaten your Emergency food before the Finish then you will have experienced an Emergency and consequently be assumed to have retired.
