Your ultra-marathon kit guide

We all know the importance of preparation for the big day. Below you will find our guide to trail running with all of the ultra-marathon kit essentials from your pre-race training kit, on-route running and overnight must-haves.

Pre-Event kit

  • Sports nutrition – practice on what will fuel you through the race such as High5
  • Your ultra-marathon running kit – make sure you run in your kit prior to wear it in
  • Make sure your feet are ultra-ready with Profeet 3D analysis, custom insoles and footwear
  • Secure your family and friends who will be cheering you through that finish line
  • Plan your travel and book your extras


Carry on your ultra-marathon:

We have an abundance of supplies at our basecamp and pitstops but it’s always sensible to carry a range of items for when you’re on the trail

  • Medical kit – Bring the basics and we have medical teams on hand at our pitstops and basecamp
  • Suncream
  • Waterproof jacket like this from Adidas Terrex
  • Full-charged mobile phone
  • At least 750ml water – you can refill at our pitstops, like this one from High5
  • Some of your favourite trail snacks – remember we have a full range at each pitstop from the likes of Perkier
  • Head torch and spare batteries
  • Emergency cash/ debit card

Overnight base camp:

  • Sleeping bag
  • Camping mat
  • Waterproof kit
  • Quick dry towel
  • Spare change of clothes to enjoy basecamp and keep warm
  • Pillow or travel pillow
  • Eye mask – for a deeper, better quality sleep
  • Earplugs – people run through the night so avoid being disturbed
  • Warm PJs – the temperature can drop at night and you’re more prone to the cold post-run
