Before you look at the recommended kit below, we offer the following insight into the specific challenges running the Wildcoast Wildrun (www.wildrun.com).
Over the 3 days and 112km of rolling headlands and footprint less golden beaches, there are many estuary crossings, long beaches (including soft sections), sand dunes and if it's been raining - muddy bogs as well! So a few key kit considerations come into play:
You will more than likely be neck deep at some stage, so you need to protect at least your mobile phone from getting drowned. We recommend one dry bag for your kit (fleece, windproof) and a phone pouch for your phone. Just don't bring waterproof shoes, they just keep the water in!
Well actually we have gone cup-less, so we ask that you bring your own collapsible cup along for use at the aid stations! We highly recommend the 25g Wildo Fold-a-Cup which is equally at home with a hot cup of tea as it is for cold water.
