Are you getting ready to travel for a running race? Do you need a race weekend packing list? This is a great marathon packing list. I have you covered. Packing for a marathon can be a little different than just packing for a regular trip. You want to make sure you bring everything you need for your race. Here is a packing checklist for a marathon weekend.
I have broken it down for you, so you can make sure you have everything you need for your “racecation”. Below is your packing list.
If you run into a problem, big or small, during your race the medical tents can usually help. They will have vaseline if you need to reapply or notice an area that is starting to chafe. They usually have BioFreeze or Icy Hot. They will also have Tylenol and/or Advil if you find you need it during the race. They will usually also have staffed medical professionals if you have a big problem. They can sit you down and give you some ice, a ride to the finish area if you can’t go on, and can call an ambulance for an extreme emergency.
Remember to not worry too much. You have trained for this moment. Stick with what you know and your planned pace and your will have fun. Don’t go out too fast at the start. It will be tempting because people around you will bee going fast, but don’t give in to the temptation. You don’t want to hit a wall from starting too fast. Everyone needs to run their own race and listen to their own body. Good luck!
