This was one of Steph’s great ideas and even though she won’t be joining us at the festival I couldn’t let this one go, as Steph is one of the best organisers I know and she writes a mean list. So, if you’re one of the 900 folk heading to Love Trails Festival this week read on and remember, I’m a ambassador and will be leading a few runs over the weekend so please join me and say hello!
DON’T FORGET YOUR TICKET AND ID!
Your tent! complete with groundsheet, poles, enough pegs and maybe a mallet to knock ’em in!
Mat, sleeping bag and pillow
Trail shoes – I’m so excited to try my new favourites the Salomon S-Lab Sense 6’s
Plenty of socks – my favourites are Stance
Vests, tees and a long sleeve
Hat or visor and a buff
Race vest or running rucksack
Water bottles to carry water while running
Head torch with charged battery or spares
Swimming costume/trunks if you’re planning on catching some waves
Cash for food and drinks
Toiletries – just the basics and maybe an extra loo roll
Cutlery and your own mug and water bottle – keep plastic waste down and bring your own
I’m sure I’ve forgotten something but those are the basics – anything else I’m sure you can borrow! There are literally hundreds of runners attending that share your love of trail running so make friends, smile and see you there!
