Mandatory Kit for the St Sunday Mountain Race

The St Sunday Mountain Race is a technical mountain race. The mandatory kit listed below MUST be worn and carried by all competitors at all times. Full kit checks may be carried out at registration, and spot checks at the finish. Please don’t try to take short cuts with your mandatory kit: no kit, no race.

If you are in any doubt about any aspect of the race kit requirements, suitable footwear, etc, please email us at well in advance of the race.

Must be worn:

  • Vest or Short Sleeve base layer top (NO COTTON)
  • Shorts or tights (3/4 tights acceptable)
  • Mountain/Trail running shoes (NO ROAD SHOES) - We recommend Scarpa: Golden Gate Kima RT, Golden Gate 2 and the Spin ST

Must be worn or carried:

  • Waterproof jacket with hood and taped seams (water resistant products are not acceptable)
  • Waterproof trousers with taped seams (water resistant products are not acceptable)
  • Spare Long Sleeved Base Layer Top (NO COTTON).
  • Hat, Buff or similar
  • Gloves
  • Head Torch
  • Survival Bag (space blankets are not acceptable)
  • Whistle (to be used in case of distress: 6 long blasts on the minute, every minute)
  • 200 Calories of emergency food (must be unused at the finish unless you had an emergency, or you will be disqualified)
  • GPS and/or Map & Compass.
  • First aid kit (minimum contents: bandage, plasters, pain killers but please NO ANTI INFLAMMATORIES [NSAIDS] as these have been known to cause renal failure in race situations)
  • Race Vest, Race Pack or Bumbag
  • Safety pins x 4 (or other device for attaching race number)

In addition to the items listed above, we strongly advise you take account of the prevailing weather conditions & dress accordingly. Your kit should be sufficient to keep you warm in the event that you are injured and have to make a long, slow walk back to safety.

The Race Director reserves the right to ask for additional warm clothing (e.g. tights or insulating jacket) to be worn or carried if, in his/her judgment, the weather conditions on race day demand it. You will be informed of any additional requirements at the pre-race safety talk, with a final decision being made 30 minutes before the start.

Please arrive prepared.

To not have ALL of the MANDATORY kit list will mean you will not be allowed to race!
