Welcome to Race Week friends! Whether you’re an experienced veteran, or this is your first trail race, our very own Tracy Davis assembled a few “must haves” as we prepare for the inaugural Kettle Cooker Five & Dime:
Trail shoes….. much of the terrain is somewhat technical and there are many creek crossings. Two (2) great choices from race sponsor Altra are the Lone Peak, which is also available in a mid and a hiker version, and the Olympus, which is also available in a mid–hike variety.
Handheld hydration vessel. This is a cup–less race.
Technical hat. Dirt, wind, water, sun…..and don’t forget sweat. We have plenty of headwear options (smile).
Hope to run into you (figure of speech) this upcoming weekend! Check out our first and second Kettle Cooker Five & Dime posts, stop into one of our 4 locations (Center City, University City, Manayunk, Glen Mills) or continue your online visit to pick up some Altra merch (gotta look the part, right?). See you out there!
