Packing for Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend!

Last week I went to Kelowna for Christmas and my luggage ended up arriving 18-ish hours after I did. Other than feeling like a dirtbag most of the next day, this wasn’t a huge deal. I didn’t have a race or anything specific like that to be super prepared for but tomorrow when I leave Prince Rupert, my carry-on is going to be packed like a pro. Hopefully my list might help you double-check your packing situation for a race weekend that requires flight(s)

PRETEND that checked luggage does not arrive at the same time I do…

CARRY-ON

  • runners & socks
  • race clothes for WDW 5km on Thursday a.m.
  • Garmin & charger
  • undies, rundies & sports bra
  • toothbrush, toothpaste, deoderant
  • race waiver & ID for package pickup
  • throw-away long sleeve shirt
  • phone & charger
  • medication
  • facewash, moisturizer
  • PJs
  • sunglasses

CHECKED BAGGAGE

  • 2nd pair of runners & more run socks
  • undies & rundies
  • race clothes/costumes for 10km, 1/2 & full marathon
  • bathing suit & towel
  • NON-RUNNING CLOTHES & SHOES (something I would forget, guaranteed)
  • make-up
  • hair washing stuff (I don’t use shampoo/conditioner..explain another day)
  • FlipBelt
  • gels, chews & electrolyte tabs
  • headphones
  • extra safety pins
  • sunscreen & chapstick
  • Body Glide
  • hair elastics & headbands
  • hat
  • garbage bag for home-made poncho before race if it rains
  • CEP compression socks for after races
  • more throw-away shirts

Pretty sure if my baggage was delayed I’d be set for the 5km race at 6am on Thursday. The carry-on situation would be a little different if the first race wasn’t just five kilometers, but it is! If you notice anything missing, let me know! 19 hours til the start of my long journey.
