Here are some of the things I keep in my race day bag.


  1. Racing flats (for shorter races)
  2. Running gels
  3. Body glide
  4. Extra contacts- Trust me, bring them.
  5. Chapstick

  7. Sunglasses
  8. Nuun/hydration drink
  9. Candy cane/mint- helps calm stomach and nerves.
  10. Post race recovery drink
  11. Watch
  12. Water Bottle

    I had to laugh at the extra contacts. I thought I am always overprepared but have never thought to bring them! I do bring eye drops however so I guess it is the same idea 😉 My bag looks similar to yours!
