What the hell should I wear?
We often give kit advice, but not everybody agrees! So, who better to ask, than people who have done a HellRunner or 2!
Don’t forget, your HellRunner Buff and your HellRunner towel for clean up!
Under Armour, running top & shorts for me …. last year I wore gloves for the first time and found them a great help.
Less clothing the better. Everything gets wet and will weigh you down.
Tie your laces normally and don’t use gaffer tape. (if they do come off you’ll never get them back on)
Everything very thin and very tight plus gloves, if you get stuck in a bit of a queue going through the lake anything exposed is gonna feel it, and oh yer tie you shoes up nice and tight, have everyone I can’t wait, absolutely loved it last year
The less clothes the better. Skin dries quickly! I found gloves just got wet and very cold. Heel lock laces. And sing and laugh all the way round!
Don’t think about what you’re wearing just get on with it it is Hell after all 4th one some call me crazy.
Tape your trainers to your feet with gaffer tape and DO NOT attempt to WALK/wade across Lucifer’s Lido… swim dammit!

Less clothes and keep moving to keep warm, oh and definitely trail trainers.
Make double sure that your laces are tight…..the ‘Bog of Doom’ sucks……literally
Under Armour top and running tights.
Lee Nelson Haynes Trainers, shorts , T shirt ………….
Not to heavy when wet
Bollock naked. (HellRunner: At your peril!)
Less is best !
DO not wear a hooped skirt clown outfit. It is AWESOME when you need a pee (crouch down in your own tent!) but TERRIBLE drag thru the water, was almost impossible to get thru the bog of doom
Squirrel costume in 2012…chaff-age galore
Old skool Helly Hansen under a running vest, 3/4 length running tights reduces cuts to knees
Layers in all the right places, i.e. Keep the important bits of you warm.

I was thinking Speedos for the bogs this year.
