All clothing MUST be well-fitting and meet the material requirements above. For clarity, infant thermals are NOT acceptable.
Note: Additional compulsory gear will be supplied to you by the Race Officials at Scrutineering. This includes a GPS tracker, basic first aid kit and a maps of the race area.
Whilst not compulsory, we strongly recommend that you take the following.
Please consult with your coach if you have any queries about the suitability of your equipment. If your coach is unsure, please contact us BEFORE the event to clarify.
Cotton Clothing is DISALLOWED as it does not “wick” moisture and can easily cause you to become hyperthermic in wet conditions. It is also prone to chafing (particularly underwear), whereas other materials may be more comfortable. Compression Garments do NOT provide adequate thermal properties and therefore are not acceptable as thermal underwear.
Note: if you suffer from any medical conditions (i.e. asthma), please ensure you take the appropriate medication with you on the run, able to last up to 48 hours. Consult with your doctor to ensure that you are able to use this medication during Inward Bound.
Once at Scruitineering, your division may be refused entry into the race if your equipment does not fulfil the requirements specified.
