Compulsory and Recommended Equipment List – Runtheberg Challenge & Runtheberg Extreme 2nd & 3rd October 2021
Note: Notwithstanding today’s increasingly accurate weather forecasting, you will be running in the mountains, notoriously unpredictable and unforgiving for the ill-prepared. This Equipment List will differentiate between two different expected weather conditions (Good – cool/warm temperatures, little/no wind, no rain; Variable – any chance of extreme temperatures, wind and/or precipitation), as well as between the two races. Although Day 1 and Day 2 in both races will be quite different (Day 1 = Mountain Day & Day 2 = Valley Day) the official required equipment lists will be the same, with the Race Organisers reserving the right to grant certain concessions on Race Day as they see fit.
COVID-19 – Masks & Buffs
Every runner is required to be in possession of a face mask or buff at all times. Masks / buffs will need to be worn at all Race Starts and in all public places around the Race Village. Runners will be able to remove masks / buffs once the fields have start to spread after a few hundred metres. No Mask No Start.
Please Note: The Race Organisers will tend to be conservative and strict in the enforcement of Compulsory Equipment, and there will be kit checks. Everybody is however ultimately responsible for their own safety.
