Find out how to pack all your mandatory kit for long-distance, ultra and multi-day runs and races into a 10L vest-style running pack.
I promise, it all goes in there! Basically, put the items you need frequently in the front pockets, and infrequent items in the main compartment or in pockets you can’t access easily on the move.
AND I just called up the featured energy bar makers Veloforte to see if they’d do you guys an offer as they don’t have any affiliate deals set up, and they gave me a 20% discount code for you to use on your first order, nice! Scroll down to get it. They said they’d send me their new flavours to sample if lots of you buy these bars, so I hope you go for it as they’re yummy and I’d definitely like some more!!!
To buy any of the kit I use, please consider using the Amazon affiliate links below (UK or US) as this gives me a small percentage of the sale at no cost to you. Many thanks, Claire
