Kit List
HAVE THE RIGHT KIT
Think comfortable clothes and trainers. Bring spare clothes and towel
BRING A BOTTLE
We’re trying really hard to reduce our single-use plastic consumption at Race for Life this year. We’re happy to provide bottles of water to those who need it, but if you can bring your own reusable bottle of water, already filled, that’d be great!
In our efforts to make Race for Life as sustainable as possible, we’re looking into water-providing solutions that are both cost-effective for the charity, and environmentally-friendly, by using as little single-use plastic as possible.
BE SUN SMART
Covering up will protect your skin - don't forget your hat and sunscreen too.
