At a ract it’s always busy and it’s easy to forget something. To avoid this we’ve assembled a checklist for you:






  • Sport liquids (Gatorade, etc) – use something which will also be provided at the race location. Your stomach should know it.
  • Cereals in the morning / coffee / take cooked noodles with you – eat a lot of carbs 1-2 days before the race
  • Gels and bars for your race
  • Schedule your eating for your race (which bar / gel when?)


  • Heart rate monitor band, heart rate monitor itself, distance counter (batteries!)
  • Chip (do not forget to add the right number of your chip)
  • Running shoes
  • Running Pant
  • Running Shirt
  • Socks
  • Chip band for your foot
  • Race number band (fix your race number on the band before start)
  • Jogging pant and clothes for after-race (sweater)
  • Something to protect your head (cap) against sun
  • 2 pairs of running shoes (one pair for warm-up before start)


  • clothes if it’s raining
  • sun cream
  • moisturizer
  • Vaseline or similar creme (to protect your nipples 🙂
  • something against head ache
  • Plaster
  • Camera / charge battery
  • Sticky tape
  • Chewing gum
  • MP3 player
  • Box for transition zone (put your equipment in correct order in the box)
