Exmoor Q2 Adventure Race

 

Kit List

What you NEED to bring...

Per Person:

  • A well-maintained mountain bike. Need to hire a bike? You must book it in advance
  • Cycle helmet
  • A back pack big enough to carry everything you need with you (including running shoes)
  • A head torch / torch plus some spare batteries for Stage 3 (night stage on foot)

Per Team:

  • Bike tools (including puncture repair kit, pump and spare inner tube)
  • A first aid kit, emergency foil blanket and whistle
  • The mobile phone specified on your entry - carry this with you for emergency contact

What we ADVISE you to bring...

  • A hydration system / water bottle
  • Energy bars, gel or similar race food to eat on-the-go
  • Wind and waterproof outer layers (Exmoor is very exposed to the elements)
  • Race clothing to provide layers to keep you warm including hat and gloves
  • Running shoes with a decent off-road tread
  • Watch
  • Compass
  • Permanent pen for writing on the map - required for some stages (available to purchase on the day)
  • Highlighter pen (in case you want to highlight routes on the map)
  • A lock to slip round your bike / bikes when not being used
  • A bell for your bike to warn others of your approach - routes are popular with walkers & horse riders
  • Reflective clothing for Stage 3 (night stage on foot) - there are a few sections on roads
  • Cash for food and drink (no card payments - sorry)

Plus if you're camping on site you'll need to bring all your own camping equipment - tent, sleeping mat, sleeping bag etc. There will be onsite catering throughout the weekend so you don't have to bring cooking equipment unless you want to.

 

Additional Notes

  • GPS devices may be carried with you to record your route for post-race analysis.
  • GPS enabled devices should not be used to view your position during the race.
