Race Box

I have been asked a number of times about my race box and what I mean when I mention it in correspondence.

I first started using my race box at my 12 hour race at Crawley in April 2010 and is used to store the food, drinks and equipment that I will need for the race that I won't be carrying. It is particularly useful for circuit races when I need to keep all my "stuff" in one place amongst other runners equipment. I have a basic list of the type of stuff I have in it and include:
  • Carb gels
  • Food
  • Milkshakes
  • Plasters and basic first aid kit
  • Spare socks
  • Vaseline
  • Dry shirt and shorts
  • Bottles of tap water (I don't trust race water as it is often taken from outside taps)
  • Nuun
The list can go on and is limited to the size of the box and also I have to carry it to and from the run.
