Like for all sporting events the right gear is of great importance. Therefor we gathered a few tips and tricks for your:

  • Shoes: Spikes and shoes with dobbs are not allowed! We recommend running shoes with a solid profile.
  • Clothing: Since we hope for good weather we would recommend some shorts and a t-shirt. Kneepads or a knee-lenght shorts could prevent you from abrasions.
  • Gloves: We recommend you to at least wear biking-gloves. It will be easier on some obstacles!

Tips

What to wear

Here are some rules for the right outfit:

    • Shoes: Spikes are not allowed. We suggest running shoes with higher profile.
    • Clothes: We are hoping for good weather so shorts and a t-shirt will be fine.
      Knee protectors or knee length trousers can avoid abrasions.
    • Gloves: We suggest to at least wear cycling gloves to better overcome some obstacles

Specific run and strenght training with coordinative elements is a good way to train for the Grazathlon. Run over rough and smooth and if you have the chance to, run the official Grazathlon route beforehand. Pull-ups and other strength exercises won’t hurt too.
