Like many here I do 4, 5 & sometimes 6 hour solo runs and on these I also like to carry a small first aid kit. While compiling some gear for my first 50 miler this weekend (Stone Cat) I noticed that have to replenish my first aid supplies.<br><br><br>
Since there seems to be a first aid kit geared toward almost all other activities I got to wondering what other folks would pack to make an "Ultra Runners First Aid Kit". Typically I carry:<br><br>
A few band Aids<br>
Chap Stick<br>
A Couple Tylenols<br>
An Aneseptic Wipe<br>
Thoughts on other contributions?

Great topic. I'm interested in what everyone carries.<br><br>
Aside from calories and fluids, here's what I typically carry in a waistpack for a long run/race:<br><br>
antacid<br>
S-caps<br>
asst. ibuprofen & tylenol<br>
chewing gum<br>
small tube Aquaphor (anti-chafe)<br>
small band-aids<br><br>
If talking about what's in the car or drop bag, there's more.

always a good choice.<br><br>
See you at stone cat! I'll be volunteering somewhere, probably wearing my Bull Run jacket unless it's too cold. Hmm...I could wear my new TeamSlug trucker's hat.

surgical tape - about 1'<br>
2 blister bandages<br>
safety pin<br>
duct tape - about 8' of rolled on itself (flat)<br>
Ibuprofen - 2 tabs<br>
an extra gel<br>
Buff - for every condition...if it's hot, I dunk it in creeks...if it's cold, I make it into a beanie.<br>
LED light/keychain...so small, I forget it's there.<br>
If I am alone, I carry a small cell phone.<br>
All of this fits into a very small waistpack, or into 2 handheld's pockets....except for the Buff which is either on my head, around my neck, or on my wrist.<br><br>
For backcountry/remote runs, I carry a very small emergency bivy bag...one sprained ankle could mean a very cold night. It's about the size of a mandarin orange.
