I’m currently packing for the 12 hour Equinox Adventure race tommorrow. I’ve done a few short races and have started to get into the groove of what to pack, but I still like to have a nice check list to use to make sure I’ve got everything for the adventure race. The worst thing is to arrive at the race and realize you forgot a pair of shoes or helmet. If you forget a pair of socks, you can survive the pain, but a missing helmet means not being able to take part in the race….

I found this nice comprehensive list from AR gear and sharing it here for you to use and see as well. It recommends various types of each item if you don’t have it or want to see what they recommend.

Do you have a different adventure race gear list that you use? Please share….
