Several safety items are required for racers in RacingThePlanet Ultramarathons. See the list below with an explanation of each.

Safety Pins - A minimum of 10 safety pins are required for attaching your bib number and race patch and for multiple uses during the event. Heavy duty, large pins work best.

Mirror - This can be used to attract attention in case of emergency. The mirror will reflect the sun to draw attention to your location.

Compression Bandage - The minimum size requirement for a compression bandage is 7.5 cm/3 in wide x 4.5 m /14 ft long (6 cm/2.4 inches in diameter). The compression bandage can be used for strapping an ankle / knee, slinging an arm injury, bandaging a lesion or head wound to prevent bleeding, etc.

Rain Poncho - This is required for additional warmth and wet protection. A rain poncho is lightweight and easy to put on/take off when the weather changes. Must be clear / transparent so you can see your bib through it.

Compass - Any model is adequate; however, a compass as a part of a watch is not sufficient. Note: There is no navigation in the event. The compass is an emergency gear item.

Red Flashing Light - The red flashing light is required in addition to your headlamp and back-up light. This is to be attached to the rear of your backpack and switched on when you are on the course in the dark.

Survival Bivvy Bag - This must be a closed bivvy bag (not a blanket) made of reflective material. We recommend a thick bag that you can repack easily as you may want to use it over your sleeping bag in cold or wet weather conditions.

Whistle - This can be used to attract attention in case of an emergency. Note that many backpacks include a whistle on the buckle - this is not sufficient. You must have an emergency whistle.
