Build the Ul­ti­mate Marathon Go-Bag

AF­TER MONTHS OF TRAIN­ING, THE LAST THING YOU NEED IS SOME­THING GO­ING WRONG ON THE DAY. HERE’S YOUR STRESS-BUSTING CHECKLIST.

Runner's World South Africa - - KNOWLEDGE - BY JEFF DENGATE

MUR­PHY’S LAW DIC­TATES things will go wrong on marathon day – es­pe­cially if you’re trav­el­ling. So you have to be pre­pared for any­thing to hap­pen. Af­ter all, you’ve put in the work, and you don’t want the uni­verse to ruin it. RW Run­ner-in-Chief (and 28-time marathoner) Jeff Dengate has cu­rated the es­sen­tial items you’ll need to get through the ex­pected (hunger pangs on the plane) and un­ex­pected (the con­struc­tion site next to your ho­tel). Stuff these (or sim­i­lar) in your hand lug­gage to make sure you get to the start feel­ing ready. The rest is up to you.
