Ultra Running - GEAR LIST

PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY - You and your team are responsible for carrying suitable and appropriate equipment, clothing, and sustenance for the climate, conditions, and activities in any ARGEORGIA race. This Mandatory Equipment List is NOT a list of the only items you should take. It contains the mandatory items that you and your team must carry with you, at specified times, to meet minimum safety requirements by law, prevent and/or treat some potential injuries, and short-term survival purposes (for example a seriously injured team member, in a stationary position, overnight in bad weather). It assumes your team members will not separate during the race and that you may share between members the mandatory equipment that must be carried. You will certainly need additional equipment, clothing, food, and drink for your participation in the event.
