Where Ray Zahab is running determines what he packsRay ZahabWhat Ray Zahab takes with him depends on where in the world he’s running. Last summer, when he ran the 100-kilometre Akshayuk Pass trail on Baffin Island, he carried a hydration pack with military rations, salt tablets, water purification tablets, a lightweight stove, a headlamp, a windshell, a toque and gloves. For three-hour-plus training runs, he cuts the fat, ditching just about everything but the windshell. He loads his hydration pack with Gatorade and some food. “I bring gels or real food,” he says. “I like to bring a bag of boiled potatoes. They’re everything I need.”
