Haven’t you ever felt helpless, before a race or after one because you have left a item at home that you now badly need ?

I always loved to read and use pre-travel checking list. They are quite useful when you travel overseas. And they are all the more useful when you travel to run a marathon.

You can find many travel checklist on the Internet. My preference goes to the Onebag.com One page travel checklist.

Blaine Moore, the author of the Run to win blog, has created a very useful checklist dedicated to runners. It helps listing all the items you may need at different moments of your journey :

  • Pre-race bag
  • post-race bag
  • luggage

Pre-race checklist generator - run to win

It is not a fixed list, but a real tool that enables you to edit the list and personalize it according to your needs. You can :

  • Reorder items
  • Change the label of Items
  • Add Items
  • Move an item from one list to another…

The list will be generated as a PDF file that you will be able to print and finally check.

This is a tool I certainly will use for my next marathon. You should give it a try too. Great job Blaine !
