Trail gear

Some trail running events require compulsory gear that may include space blankets, super glue and a whole range of other things.

The Spur Trail Series® does not require any of these specialised items but a few basics are required.

We suggest the following:

  • Trail running shoes
  • Hydration pack with space for at least 1,5l
  • Whistle
  • Windbreaker
  • Cell phone in a waterproof container (a ziplock will work)

You can find all of these at the Trail Store at any Spur Trail Series® as well as a range of other cool trail running gear. Also be sure to check out Spur Trail Series® product sponsor, Raidlight South Africa, they have a variety of hydration packs and other technical gear and will be at all Cape and Gauteng Trail Series races with an expert in trail running to give you tips on everything you need. Their backpacks will be on sale at all of these events.
