I agree with the Alpkit Hunka bivy. I would also add a tarp with two or three tent pegs and some string to give you wind and rain cover. Only an extra 300+gms but very useful. Check out Alastair Humphreys website, he has tons of info and ideas.
The 4th year of the Croydon Ultra is being held on Sunday July 6th. Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and some new ones. You can enter online via the RW website.
The event website is www.thecroydonultra.co.uk where you can details of the course and of course various updates as we get nearer to the date.
All proceeds are going to a Parkinson's Charity.
Good luck with your training.
