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.

Excellent product

The Anti Blister Low-Rise Running Sock

Best Socks for Trail Running

Wore a pair during Oman Desert Marathon, only changing to a clean pair on day 5. No excessive sweating (even with the double layer) and no blister even after wearing them for almost 100km in very hot (above 40C) running condition and soft sand.
Also that double-layer gives an extra cushioning making them very comfortable for long runs on rocky trails.

Awesome Base Layer recommended for training in fresh to very cold environment

Tested the baselayer while running for 4 hours by -10C with only 1 extra layer to protect me from the wind and it kept me warm all the way. I also like to wear it for my early morning running session in the fresh Dubai winter and I don't feel to warm as it is very breathable and wicks moisture.

Perfect Baselayer

Garment material is flawless and keeps ur body warm in cold morning runs. Fit is also as per normal standards. A perfect addition to my running gear.
