Kit list

IMG_4987

A slightly more geeky post than usual but I thought I’d share my kit list for #vivrunseurope for those who are interested or that fancy doing their own expedition (DO IT!).

If you fancy doing research on some of the kit, you’ll find that some of it is a little pricey. I was recommended by someone (Rosie Swale Pope – who has run around the world!) to always buy good quality kit for this type of challenge. I have to say that I was never let down by my gear and would genuinely recommend everything here. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.

You’ll find a couple of luxuries in here such as my camera and laptop. Despite the added weight it was definitely worth having both with me!
