When you travel to run or race, packing your favorite running shoes is a given. What else you bring is up to you…but allow us to suggest these multipurpose, must-haves for cardio tourists.
Pro-Tec Travel Roller Massager, $28
At only 17.5 inches long, you have no excuse not to pack this mighty, tight-fascia-busting tool. Comfortable handles make self-massage easy—or put it on the floor and use it like a roller.
HyperGo After Sports Wipes, $15 for a resealable pouch of 20 wipes
These generously sized, 12” x 12” wipes are just what you need to feel fresh after a run, a long travel day or when the hotel runs out of hot water.
Strafe Scout Jacket, $179
With this unisex jacket you’ll be protected from the elements on your run and while touring about town. It’s waterproof, breathable, has stretch but doesn’t scream “I’m a runner” when you’re playing tourist between workouts.
Patagonia Lightweight Black Hole Pack 26L, $99
Shove this durable TPU laminated, DWR treated, ripstop pack in your suitcase for extra room on the way home or use it as your go-to travel pack and race day bag.
Purinize Water Purifier Drops 2oz, $16
All it takes is 20 drops of this mineral-based formula per liter of water to eliminate or reduce more than 200 common bacteria, viruses and chemicals. Translation? You can have fresh water wherever you may run and roam.
Ginger Rescue Strong, $6
Stomachaches suck. But with riding on trains, boats and planes, as well as pre-race nerves and enjoying new foods, they’re going to happen. These potent little tablets, full of ginger’s tummy-taming properties, will help—naturally.
SaltStick Fastchews, $15 for a 60-count bottle
Two tasty tablets (they taste like a slightly salty Sweet Tart) deliver an electrolyte-boosting dose of sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium—no mixing or measuring required.
