Hood to Coast is a few weeks away. What to bring?

Hood to Coast

Hood to Coast is a few weeks away. I’m making a list of what I need to bring with me. It’s never too early to plan. Plus I love making lists. Oh, and buying new gear.

Hood to Coast has a great recommended packing list here. I used their list and added/removed items to make my own list.

□ Three sets of running clothes
□ Running shoes – Hard to run without my running shoes!
□ Change of clothes for beach
□ Gloves for running – Just in case, but most likely won’t nee them.
□ Sandals – Bringing a pair of flip flops.
□ Glasses – Can’t run without my glasses. I will run the wrong way!
□ Towel
Sleeping bag/small pillow - Will just use a hoodie or rolled up clothes.
□ Toiletries (Deodorant, toothbrush/toothpaste, etc.)
□ Reusable water bottles – Have plenty to bring!
□ Reflective vest (for nighttime legs) – Recently bought the Amphipod Xinglet Flash LED
□ Plastic Bags/Ziploc bags for wet clothes
□ Handy Wipes, antibacterial
□ Extra Batteries for headlamp
□ Cell phone/charger
□ Petzl headlamp
□ Sunscreen
□ Camera/charger - So my iPhone doesn’t die taking a bizillion pictures ;)
□ GoPro Camera plus head mount and cables – It will be fun to document the journey!
□ Hoodie  for the “cold” nights
□ Compression sleeves – A must for recovery.
□ Headphones to listen to tunes between legs
□ Backpack to hold all my stuff
□ Arm strap to hold iPhone while I run

Cytomax was generous to donate a lot of nutrition for the team. They are the best! Thank you Cytomax!

I’m sure stuff not on this list will make its way into my bag. Never fails.

  1. Thanks for posting this Wes. I am working on my list and will use yours to make sure I don’t forget anything.

Early nights and compression tights; trails and ales.

Purely Numbers

The body achieves what the mind believes!

I Swear My Legs are on Auto-Pilot...

because otherwise this whole running business doesn't make a whole lot of sense....
