1. Food and drink
If your trek or challenge doesn't have any food stops along the way, make sure you stock up on snacks, bars, gels or drinks to refuel with. You don't want to get halfway round the course and find yourself struggling for energy.
Trekking, like many other challenges, requires a lot of kit. And whilst this isn't an exhaustive list, it's a good start:
- walking boots
- spare clothes (t-shirts, shorts, trousers, socks)
- windproof and waterproof clothing
- headgear and sun protection
- water bottle
- insect repellent
- wet wipes (always useful)
- blister plasters
- toilet roll
3. Post-event items
You'll want to take a change of clothes, comfy shoes, as well as some wet wipes and a towel in case there are no nearby washing facilities when you finish your trek or challenge.
If you anticipate that there might be some bad weather, it's a good idea to pack a bin bag or a dry bag to hold wet kit.
