Ruck/Back Pack: (Tactical or Practical) – Covering 25 kilometers, you won't need a large pack, but you will want to blend in and you never know if you will have the opportunity to help out a fellow teammate with carrying some of their gear during the final trek. 

Water: A bladder type system is recommended, but provided you have a couple of bottles of water you will be fine.  

Food:  Any food you will want to consume - we recommend eating a balance of carbs, protein & smart sugars every hour

USG Issued ID: Required at Check-in. 

Head Lamp w/White Lens: UThe white lens is mainly a safety precaution as we move in the early morning hours. 

Green Chem Light: / Glow Stick attached to your pack (again a safety precaution).
