Trail gear

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

The 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 800ml
  • Whistle
  • Sunscreen
  • Windbreaker
  • Cell phone in a waterproof container (a ziplock will work)
  • Headlamp (for any Sunset or Night Race)

You can find all of these at the Trail Store at any Trail Series® race as well as a range of other cool trail running gear. Also be sure to check out 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 or online during entry.
