Dartmoor Marathon - KIT LIST
Waterproof jacket (a lightweight running specific jacket, but they must have taped seams)
Waterproof trousers (recommend lightweight running specific trousers, with taped seams)
Long sleeve baselayer (this is an emergency extra layer, ie to be carried as part of your kit in a waterproof bag and not intended for general use in the event)
Emergency Foil blanket
Headtorch - this is up to you and NOT a mandatory item. Be realistic; if you expect to be around or over 10 hours you WILL need one!
Supplied Map - obtained at registration
Compass (proper compass - not on your phone!)
Water carrying capacity of 1 Litre
Food (this obviously can be supplemented at checkpoints)
Emergency item of food (something like a medium size chocolate bar)
We recommend you download a location finding app on your phone such as OS Locate. In the event of a problem this will allow you to give your co-ordinates to the emergency services or us so you can be located or helped etc.
This is a mandatory kit list. Dartmoor is a wild place where the weather can change quickly and there will be long periods when you are on your own between checkpoint support. With lightweight running specific kit you can be prepared for eventualities and still have a light, compact race pack.
We will not have any items on the kit list available for you to buy at the race, so don’t forget anything!
You will not be allowed to start the race without having this minimum kit on you and we will be checking you have the correct kit when you arrive to register.
