Marathon Kit Checklist

Posted on

Use our marathon kit checklist!

You've trained for months and the big day is fast approaching. Time to taper, get a positive mindset and visualise crossing that finish line. What you don't want to be doing is worrying about what kit to pack and whether you've forgotten anything.

Here's our marathon kit checklist to help:

Number Collection / Expo

  • Driving licence/photo id for race number collection
  • Confirmation email
  • Race day timings. Google where the start is, what tube stop, coach stop, how far a walk etc.
  • Say hello to us at stand 266!

 Race Kit

  • Socks
  • Trainers
  • Plastic bags to put over trainers at start
  • Runderwear™!
  • Shorts
  • Gel belt (if used. E.g. Flipbelt.
  • Running vest/t-shirt
  • Watch if you use one AND CHARGER!
  • Sunglasses and cap or visor if you wear these
  • Vaseline or Body Glide cream
  • Suncream - if the sun comes out at mile 2, you've got a good few hours in the sun to look forward to!

Race Nutrition

  • Gels
  • Food bars, e.g. Tribe
  • Water bottle and preferred drink to go in it (if you don't plan on using the race provided drinks.

Post Race

  • Arrange where you're going to meet friends and family at the end. Mobile signal can be ropey with so many people in one place. London has different lettered meeting points so pick a letter and arrange beforehand.
  • Clothing to get changed into afterwards, including tracksuit bottoms and hoodie/jumper.
  • Food and energy drink for straight after – banana etc. Best to eat carbs within 30mins – to 2 hours after, as that’s when body best at absorbing.

Love the Anti- VPL hispter. Very comfortable. Will definitely be ordering more in future.

Pretty and fits

As stated it’s not for high impact sports but great for example for climbing, yoga or cycling. The pink looks great under a black tank top. My normal bra size is 36b (german sizing) and M fits perfectly.

Finally no chafing

Finally I have found a sports bra that doesn’t chafe. Even in the hottest conditions and sweating, it does it’s job without causing the well known chafing-pain from other bras. Will definitely stock up on runderwear bras

Awesome
