DIY first aid kit all trail runners should carry with them

18/08/2016
The trail to victory is tough and therefore one should always be prepared for what might lie ahead. Prepping and having your very own DIY first aid kit can come in handy in the event of an unforeseen accident or injury.

These following items can be included when putting together your very own first aid kit:

Athletic tape:
Always carry a roll of athletic tape with you, in case you or someone rolls their ankle. Athletic tape can also come in handy as a band aid should a fellow runner cut themself or should the wound continue to bleed.

Irrigation syringe:
Pressure irrigation works wonders for cleaning dirt, debris and small rocks out of a wound. Whether you have a scrape, cut, laceration, abrasion or a gash, nothing cleans and prevents infection better than high pressure water.


 
Rescue whistle:
You never know where you might find yourself or who might be lurking in the bushes. The distinct sound of a whistle is sure to raise a distress alarm. If your hydration pack does not have a built in whistle, now is the time to act and get yourself one.


Garbage bag:
Not only does a garbage bag double as an emergency rain jacket and warm layer when temperatures drop unexpectedly, other functionalities include: a sling and pillowcase for a quick or emergency nap. Who knew a garbage bag had that much functionality?
