MSR FreeLite 2 Tent Review

By Luke Jarmey

Certainly not an everyday running item, there are however scenarios that call for a blooming light shelter in order to have a good night’s kip. Yes, for truly light and fast missions, a bivvy bag or tarp can sometimes sleepily suffice; but whether you’ll be out for the count is debatable.

By Alice Morrison

PHD are leaders in the field for making excellent weight-to-warmth ratio sleeping bags and sleeping systems. How much warmth you need at night is a personal thing although some races do specify a minimum weight/specification.

Black Diamond Distance Carbon FLZ pole review

By Alice Morrison

If I did it again, I’d take poles,” were Gavin Barrett’s words as he finished the Everest Trail Race, a 6 day stage ultra in the Himalaya. I certainly wouldn’t have liked to attempt it without them. In a mountain ultra, poles can help with everything from speed to stability.

Rab Mythic 200 Sleeping Bag Review

By Luke Jarmey

When you carry a sleeping bag as a runner, you want it to be light… and I mean really light. However, as our multi day trail runs often take place in rather inhospitable environments, be it mountain, desert or just blooming wet n’ windy UK moorland, it’s critical that the warmth of the sleeping bag is sufficient for the climate in question.

SPOT GEN3 satellite tracker review

By Alice Morrison

I first came across Spot after I had gone out for a long run/scramble on my own in the desert hills which surround the tiny oasis of Tighmert in the Sahara and had climbed up onto the ridge and traversed it, only to find that the descent was both difficult and in some places quite dangerous.

Leki Instructor Lite poles review

By Fiona Outdoors

I have been testing the Leki Instructor Lite Walking/Running Poles. I find poles are useful when running longer-distances in the mountains and hills. They help to reduce general lethargy and muscle soreness thanks to the support of the upper body when using the poles.

Garmin Fenix 5S Review

By Alice Morrison

I bought my last Garmin over six years ago and it is the most basic model. It has actually served me really well, and so I was keen and interested to test out a much, much fancier model - the Garmin Fenix 5S.

Petzl ACTIK Core head torch review

Night running – or running before the sun comes up – is almost an essential part of any ultra runner’s training programme in the winter months. This is why every runner needs a good head torch.
