So you want to take on LOST and see if you have what it takes to become an adventure racer?
Its time to step out of your comfort zone and grow to your full potential as a wild human bean.
This is not a normal race! There are is zero course marking, you will need to find your own way. There will be no aid stations, you will need to carry everything you need. The obstacles you face will not be made of wood and metal. Rock and mountain, wind and rain, fatigue and the dark will be the hurdles you need to overcome. Self-discipline and motivation are not listed below but you will need to bring plenty of both.
All items on this list are mandatory but are open to the in interpretation of the individual. We strongly recommend that all kit list enquiries are submitted to ROOTS before the race weekend so to allow time to make amendments. With entry to LOST you will be added to a group chat with ROOTS Marshalls so you have a direct line for questioning, and all other Seeds can benefit from both questions and answers.
