The Ultimate Destination Marathon Packing List

Earlier this week, we posted our list of our favorite destination marathons around the world. If our list kick started your fire to get out and run, today’s post is for you! We’ve turned packing for your destination marathon into something as easy as 1, 2, 3 so that the only thing you’ve got to worry about is what time your flight leaves and how you’re going to get through that 20 mile training run!


For any destination marathoner, organization is key. Make a packing list early on, and start packing at least one week in advance. This way you can focus on your training. Divide your list into categories—Race Day, Recovery Day, Street Clothes, Toiletries, Travel. This way you can knock out a segment of your list at a time. It also makes it easier to think about what you need.

Remember your:

Breathable Shorts

Handful Sports Bra

VIM & VIGR Compression Socks

High Tech Spree Sports Hat or Garmin

Fun Running Shirt

Ruby's Organic Anti-Chaffing Cream


Free Run Nike Running Shoes
