E. MANDATORY KIT

A list of mandatory gear has been prepared by the KAR Rules and Safety Committees who have very experience with outdoor adventure in all sorts of weather under both race and non-race conditions. We know how difficult it can get and what you’ll need to stay safe. Certain individuals within the committees are involved in search and rescue both commercially and as a volunteer.

This event's mandatory gear list contains what we believe to be the BARE MINIMUM to keep you safe and well, should you be delayed for some reason during the event. Naturally, if the weather is good and if you do not get injured then you won’t use most of your mandatory gear.

However, the mandatory gear is required in case you do get injured, lost, exhausted and immobilized, or if the weather turns nasty - you will be able to survive until you can be rescued.

The consequences can be critical if you are immobilized or caught in bad weather without appropriate gear.

Keeping it fair. It would be nice to think that we could leave it to runners to self-regulate and select appropriate gear for the conditions but many participants would simply not know the danger they’d be placing themselves in if they went too light. As long as everyone carries the gear it’s fair, so random gear checks are a feature of this event. We’d like to think that as well as seeing the sense in carrying the mandatory gear for your own safety, you will also keep to the spirit of the event and will carry the required gear just like everyone else.
