Kit is not worn and carried just to look the part (although we agree, trail running kit is pretty cool), its to keep you safe and will, in extreme circumstances, save your life. This is why we are so serious about compulsory kit and why we use weather condition forecasts to determine the kit items required to be carried by all participants.
Fine, mild, hot but dry
Cool and/or Wet
Cold, Wet and or Windy
Level 4: Very cold and/or Heavy Rain and or, high winds, high seas
Level 5: Flooding and or violent storm conditions with dangerously high seas.
If conditions higher than Level 3 are predicted all kit required for Level 3 is compulsory. However there is a strong likelihood that parts of the course will be rerouted and in extreme conditions of high seas and flooding the event will be cancelled.
Race Bib or Race Shirt
Race Bibs are provided at Registration and have to be worn on the outside of your race gear at any stage of the Race (and Prologue). Race Bibs will be collected at the finish.
Race Shirts may be purchased to wear instead of the Race Bib. The Race Shirt is a technical Salomon garment and can be ordered during the entry process.
Race Shirts will be personalised with your race number. If athlete is wearing a rain jacket (or similar) over race shirt their Race Bib must be worn on the outside.
Sponsored athletes have the option to include a sponsor logo on their race shirt. Logos must be submitted in 1-colour as a vectorised file (eps, pdf, ai).
