Packing for a Beast

Three weeks today we will be running the Sun Peaks Spartan Beast with friends and I’ve started to think about what to bring. I’ve made a packing list and thought I’d share it with you all in case it could be of use to you.

Keep in mind we are bringing our five year old daughter Sierra with us too, as she’s running the Spartan Kids race the next day.
