At the finish line festival area of OCRs you will typically find clean up stations (i.e. hoses), changing tents and gear check. When prepping for Savage Race in March, I did quite a bit of reading OCR blogs and asking fellow OCRers about what I need to pack in my gear check bag. Well, I ended up way over packing. I THINK I finally have my "must haves" for my OCR gear bag narrowed down. You learn things along the way, right?
Here are the things you will find in my gear check bag this weekend and throughout the rest of the 2018 season.
One very important thing I bring to change into though are sandals. You won't believe how much mud gets piled into your shoes, so taking off those shoes and socks and slipping into a pair of sandals for the ride home is fantastic. Just be sure to bring a rubber type of sandal (think rubber shower shoe style flip flops).
