I'm taking part in the Dirty Weekend obstacle race in two weeks' time, but as I'm based in Dubai I'm on uncertain ground in terms of best gear to wear given the guaranteed water and mud.
As things stand, I've got a pair of Saucony trail shoes, and was intending to wear compression tights with shorts over the top (with pocket to store gels etc). I've got an old Nike compression top I was going to wear, but thinking I may be better off getting one from the likes of 2XU on the assumption it can cope with water absorption better.
Somebody also suggested gloves could be a good idea, but any advice from others with experience of such races would be hugely appreciated. Thanks in advance.
