- a water bottle,
- your own wired headphones (or message to borrow some)

- running shoes,
- and in winter gloves & a hat.
Also useful is a rucksack that you are able to run for up to 5 mins with, to put water bottle etc into (there are no lockers or mirrors, only sunbeams and trees). So a rucksack that clips at the front is useful, but not essential.

Join together to celebrate IWD 2018 in a running challenge all about London’s inspiring women, to raise money for Freedom from Fistula.
100% of your ticket fee goes directly to Freedom from Fistula. And you get loads of goodies too: prosecco at the finish line, a £10 gift voucher and prizes for winning teams.
How many places relating to London’s inspiring women can you find in 60 or 80 minutes.
On the night we’ll join you up with other runners and you’ll plot your route. Out on the course there are a number of checkpoints – each is a place linking to an inspiring woman from history.
As a team, you’ll need to find as many checkpoints as you can in the time limit. You’ll find a marshal at each one who will give you a token to prove you’ve been there..
Your aim? To be the team to bring the most tokens back to the start. At the end you’ll get a glass of prosecco and a chance to socialise with other teams and learn about IWD 2018.
