The TransRockies Run is a 6-day 120 mile ultra marathon with over 20,000 ft. elevation gain. For most runners, just finishing the race is an accomplishment in itself, but for others (like Sean), there is only one goal. And that is to win. Wenger Blog regular, Sean McCoy, finished 2nd place overall at this year’s event. Here’s the gear he used to win.
Headsweats Race Hat
This light hat is great for running. It is cool, blocks sun, absorbs sweat and stays locked on even while running into a strong wind.
Salomon Skin Pro 10+3
This is a snug fitting vest that easily carries up to two liters of water, fuel and mandatory emergency equipment (gloves, hat, emergency blanket and water resistant jacket).
Suunto Ambit 2s
A high-end GPS watch perfect for tracking time, pace, distance and altitude.
La Sportiva Vertical K
The softer La Sportiva's are extremely light and soft, perfect for the sandy, rolling terrain of the first stage.
The Wenger Sport Glasses
Blocks the sun, sticks to the face, and can change out lenses. Exactly what a pair of running sunglasses should do.
