Mandatory Gear – Half and 30km Events

Mandatory Gear is there purely for the safety of runners. As the name suggests – it is mandatory.

In 2023 there is only one list of mandatory gear. No matter what the weather conditions please bring all of this equipment.

Since you are not going through the Glow Worm Tunnel in 2023, a red light on your head torch is not a requirement

Mandatory Gear:

  1. Head torch
  2. Beanie or Buff
  3. Snake Bandage
  4. Minimum 500ml water bottle
  5. Space Blanket
  6. Gloves
  7. Thermal Merino or Polypropoline top.
  8. Safety Whistle
  9. Waterproof rain jacket – taped seams

We will be checking equipment so please make sure you have it else you risk a time penalty or disqualification.

If you need any of this equipment it is all available at Summit Gear
