Various races at the Ultra Trail Australia have Mandatory Gear requirements for your safety.

 Blue Mountains Running Company is a gear check shop, no appointment is necessary for us to check your gear, this is a free service. 

Once checked an official certificate is printed.

Please Note: There may be random gear checks during the event and if you are missing any item you will receive a time penalty. 

We carry a lot of Mandatory Gear for the UTA races, here are our top picks................................  

 Race UTA22  

This is the official link for the check list for the UTA22 Mandatory Gear List 


 

LONG SLEEVE THERMAL TOP (polypropylene, wool) 

We recommend our Icebreaker brand range for this category, the Mens version features sleeve holes for your thumb, made from a merino wool blend, as featured. 

For the Ladies long sleeve thermal we have several Icebreaker styles, some featuring a long zip some a crew top. 

Our top pick is the Icebreaker long sleeve Oasis Crew Field, featuring 100% Merino fabric.  

Made from our super-soft, breathable 200gm merino jersey fabric, the Oasis Long Sleeve Crewe keeps you warm in cool weather, breathes well in warm conditions, and only becomes softer with age .

A decision regarding this will be made at 1:30pm the day before the race and publicised at Race Check-In, via the event app and the event Facebook Page.

 


 Waterproof and Breathable Jacket with Fully Taped (Not Critically Taped) Waterproof Seams and Hood

At Blue Mountains Running Company we have a large range of Waterproof rain jackets purpose designed for running available for both Men and Womens that meet the mandatory requirements.

We believe either th Salomon or the Ultimate Direction brand to be the best purpose designed running waterproof rain jacket, for value for money we recommend the brand Vigilante. 

Remember the rain jacket must be purpose designed for running, big bulky rain jackets are not suitable for this course, minimal underarm vents.

Ideally you need the most lightweight performance jacket with the best fit with fully seam sealed protection.

Take these factors into consideration when purchasing a jacket.

  • Best snug fit, while still allowing you to move.
  • The hood, try it on, is it adjustable, does it provide a visor so you can still see whilst running in the rain.
  • Lightweight, how well will this jacket fit in my pack.
  • Waterproof rating of 20,000g/m²/25hrs
  • Does it tick all the boxes for Mandatory requirements

Salomon Lightning or Bonati jacket are our top pick for this course.

Lightweight fabric that follows your movements, breathable weather protection plus minimalist details 

AdvancedSkin dry 2.5L and fitted hood are ready for harsh conditions PACKABILITY - Packs into its own chest pocket SPECIFICATIONS: Weight- 180 grams

Womens Waterproof Jacket selection: 

Mens Waterproof Jacket selection.

Remember The jacket must fit you. Plastic rain ponchos, wind jackets, water resistant jackets are NOT suitable.

You will only be required to carry this item if weather conditions are very cold or wet. A decision regarding this will be made at 1:30pm the day before the race and publicised at Race Check-In, via the event app and the event Facebook Page.
