What to pack for a Mountain Marathon: Matterhorn Ultraks

Check out our first video blog! We have wanted to start vlogging for a while, but waited until we had the right kit to do some good quality videos.

What to pack for a mountain marathon

Here’s what we are packing to carry in our race vests when we run the Matterhorn Ultraks (46k for Alastair, 30k for Helen) next weekend. We do a detailed run through of what we are going to carry, and why – and also show you some items which didn’t make it into our race vests this time around.

We’ll do another post next week showing what we are going to be wearing for the race.

What do you think about our choices? Do you have any great suggestions for our next race? Finally – call from Alastair: let us know if you have any suggestions for a robust, lightweight iPhone case!
