Race Equipment - Medication
If taking part in a RacingThePlanet Ultramarathon, we suggest bringing an adequate 7-day supply (at least 12 mild pain relief pills) so that you are not dependent on medication from the RacingThePlanet medical team.
Important Note: You should seek advice from your doctor about any medication that you plan to take during the race, including any form of painkillers. If you take painkillers, Tylenol / Paracetamol / Acetaminophen are preferred over anti-inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen / Neurofen / Advil / Motrin / Naprosyn and others. It is NOT advised to take anti-inflammatory medication on the course. Please read the expert article called Painkillers Used during Ultramarathons for more details.
