I try to do one destination race a year - even if that only means a race in Orange County, like some of the Disney races. The only problematic part of traveling to race is that you don't have your closet right there, so it's even more important that you get your gear together ahead of time. I have a special packing list for when I travel to a race.
- Sports bra
- race day outfit (top and bottom)
Fuel - Unless you're running in Antarctica, you can probably pick this up whereever you're going, but I like to bring it with me, so I don't have to try scouring a new location for my old favorites.
- Water belt
- Gatorade (my electrolytes of choice)
- Kind bar (breakfast before the race)
- Jelly Bell Sport Beans
- Ipod and headphones
- Travel Body Glide
Do you ever travel for races? Is there anything special you like to bring from home?
