    Assuming you don't live next door to the race start, what do you do with your valuables on race day? Do you leave them in your bag or take them with you? Thinking about wallet, phone, car keys, etc.

    Most decent size races will have a drop bag where you can leave your stuff. I tend to have a spi-belt for my mobile phone, and I put my bank-card, my car-key and my ID (driving license) in the little pocket that is usually in my shorts/capris.

    All I carry is my car key kept in a zip pocket of my shorts or running tights. The only addition is a gore waterproof/wind coat which if I need I remove and carry in a little bum bag..organised or what :smile:

    In general I carry a car/bike key in a flipbelt and phone (if leaving my stuff on the bike in a pannier rack) - for longer fell races where full kit is required I'll be carrying a small rucksack/running vest anyway.

    I don’t take my phone or wallet. I have my car key on its own and twenty pounds in cash.

    I have a bum bag, just big enough to carry a iPhone se, keys and some money, brought off eBay, I shall try to find a link later.

    Another flipbelt user here. Cash, house key (changed locks when I moved in so one key does everything), and, occasionally, car key. Phone stays at home.

    I always run with a hydration belt or vest so it all goes in there.
