Caerphilly Challenge 2016




Ultimate Direction are showcasing their brand new range of hydration vests. These ultra, race or running vests help you carry loads of water, essential clothing and equipment in a highly stable manner that puts no pressure on your waist or internal organs making you perform to your maximum. Come onto the stand to be able to try one of these packs for the day during the challenge (limited opportunity so come early to get your opportunity). 

Guidetti trekking and running poles are new to the UK but are already proving themselves on ultra runs and treks. There are test poles to use on the challenge so why not come onto the Up and Under stand and see how poles can improve your day, save your energy and reduce shock to your feet and knees.

Injinji toesocks make a huge difference to foot comfort especially over long distances by wicking moisture from between your toes and thus stopping moistening of skin and reducing rubbing and therefore blisters. They also help provide a precise and effective foot placement every step. Come and try a pair from the Up and Under stand.


So come and check out the Up and Under stand at the Caerphilly Challenge Series - The Forge to see whats going on in the world of trail and ultra running and lightweight and long distance walking.
