Might be useful to others, contact rat race about the mandatory kit and the initial run, response was: Rat Race Adventure Sports
That's great to hear, in answer to your question there is a mandated kit list for both the bike sections and the run sections. These mandated items must be carried with you on bike and on foot at all times. The only time you will not need your mandated kit will be the first 10k run section. After that your kit should remain with you and relatively unchanged (You can get rid of any bike kit in your bag for the final run section if not all attached to your bike etc)
Hope that helps!
