I have entered the CTS South Devon Marathon and was looking for advice on what people have previously or plan to use to carry on the day.
I have done 3 off road/mountain half marathons and have previously used a Camelbak Octane XC hydration pack but it doesn't have enough space to carry all the gels, snacks, first aid kit etc I will need.
I have an Inov-8 Race Pro 4 waist pack (horizontal bladder) which can probably carry the right amount of kit but I'm not sure how often there will be water stops. If there are few, then I would prefer to have a rucksack and take the weight on my shoulders rather than my waist/hips?
The CTS website sells complete kit and for the marathon they offer an Inov-8 Race Pro 12. This seems a bit on the large size, volume wise but then again it is fairly light.
I would welcome your thoughts.
