Mandatory Gear is there purely for the safety of runners. As the name suggests – it is mandatory.
In 2022 there is only one list of mandatory gear. No matter what the weather conditions please bring all of this equipment.
Please note in 2022 it is a new requirement for National Parks that only a red light can be used in the Glow Worm Tunnel. Please make sure that your head torch supports this requirement.
- Head torch or light that supports a red light – this will be tested before you go through the tunnel.
- Beanie or Buff
- Snake Bandage
- Minimum 500ml water bottle
- Space Blanket
- Thermal Merino or Polypropoline top.
- Safety Whistle
- 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
