I and 11 of my friends ran the Chicago Ragnar. It was crazy hard for us hobby runners, but it was also a self-rewarding experience. In this article, I will go over my pack out. I spent hours sifting through the internets for information. In the end, I used a combination of packing lists for inspiration and created my own with two focuses: compact and fuel. Between my National Guard experience and bikepacking hobby, I felt pretty prepared gear wise. We had large vans that provided us plenty of room. The only piece of gear I wish I had was an inflatable mat.
