CHOOSING THE RIGHT
CLOTHING AND GEAR:

for more extreme conditions eg heat or rain (Perception of too hot
is very individual).

blister management for your Coastrek event so we can't stress
enough how important it is to not wait until event weekend to try
new things. Please refer to the Coastrek Training Manual for
