Adventure racing is gear intensive! And that may be an understatement.
At a minimum you need a good mountain bike, paddles, life vest, climbing gear, proper clothing, rain gear, trekking poles, shoes, socks, helmets, headlamps, wet suits/neoprene, dive light, various gloves, gear box, bike box, various backpacks, sleeping bag and pad, tents, hammock, Sportslick, sunscreen, lip and skin care, first aid and foot care kit.
To train, if not required to bring to the race, it would be ideal to have a whitewater raft, kayak, stand-up paddle board (not the Stray Dogs favorite!), pack raft, horse, camel, and Himalayan pony.
Therefore, the Stray Dogs are immensely grateful to the companies that have sponsored and supported them throughout their 25-year career as adventure racers.
