Runners – how do you carry stuff?
I knew you’d question why I wanted my phone.
2) In case I get hurt and need to call in the cavalry. Very few phone boxes around now, and I keep thinking of a bloke I know who slipped on ice and broke his leg and had to crawl through the snow for half an hour with a broken leg to the nearest house.
What’s this utility belt?Posted 4 years ago
Often thought of taking a whistle
For some impromptu shepherding?
How would a Garmin help me carry my phone?
It wouldn’t. That’s why I never suggested it could. I was merely pointing out for the Strava/Endomondo side of things, a wrist worn Garmin GPS could help when logging ones sprints/runs.Posted 4 years agocrikeyMember
Molgrips overthinking an issue? Well I never…
Get a runners bumbag, like fellrunners have been using for about 40 odd years. You can get big ones, small ones, medium sized ones and so on.
Try putting ‘running bum bag’ into your favourite search engine….Posted 4 years agobikebouyMember
I use a Fell Runners Bum Bag too.. Trail running is my thang and I can carry 1ltr of water, my SG3 and car keys (which fit in a zipped pocket) the bottles secured by a simple elastic tie band and the webbing around the belt is large enough (about 1 1/2 wide) not to dig in nor become hassle.
Done over 100ks with it so far over all sorts of terrain with no issues other than thanking myself for buying it.
Cost (like that’s an issue) £15.00 from Snow & Rock.

You can get tiny, stretchy ones:
It’ll easily accommodate a <5″ smartphone, some keys and a couple of other small bits. Couple of loops for gels or similar too.Posted 4 years agonickcSubscriber
I asked what YOU use, not what should I use.
I don’t take a phone, and the idea of measuring a run fills me with horror
I know this is the wrong thing to say, but…Have you thought about just going for a run without measuring it? Just run for sake of the fact that you can run, and it’s an amazingly freeing thing to do?
Road bikes are for hurting yourself and getting fit, running and MTB are just for shits an’ giggles.Posted 4 years ago
