Suggested Kit

As you are running across the peninsula the weather can be a mix of extremes at this time of year – from intense heat to freezing southerly. We recommend you consider carrying the following: Layered clothing, hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, hydration pack, survival blanket, energy bar. Please do not wear headphones as this limits your ability to hear directions from marshals and hazards.
