Stroller Runner Race Day Checklist

Packing for a race is always challenging.  You never want to leave home without your favorite socks, or your watch or your lucky shorts.  As a parent, I have found it increasing difficult to pack for a race, especially when I am running with my jog stroller and kids.  I find that I am more concerned about their needs and then inevitably I forget the essential race gear I need to race.  In order to avoid forgetting crucial race gear and my kid’s necessary items, I created a Stroller Runner Race Day Checklist.

Now, you can pack for a stroller-friendly race and feel confident you have all the essential race and children gear needed with the Stroller Runner Race Day Checklist.

    • You are welcome. If you download the pdf, it is more detailed then the picture. It highlights if you breastfeed, what you need to bring too. Of course every race you don;t need all this, but I rather be more prepared then not. Good luck!
