Recently I joined a team of “Swag Warriors” to take on the first every PromoXperience with Dana Zezzo and Imagen Brands. We had an amazing team of runners to take on the Ragnar Trail Run in Arizona. Read more about the entire experience here. But if you want to take on a challenge like this, you are going to need two things. The first is an amazing team. We had that (watch the video here). But the second necessity is the right gear! Thanks to Crown Products, Vitronic and S & S Activewear, we were ready to go. Here is a list of the “Essential Ragnar Swag!” Coleman 60 Quart Cooler: When it comes to the Ragnar Relay, you are camping. So you need a place to keep food and drinks! The Coleman 60 Quart Cooler was a must. We stored our cold cuts, other food, Gatorade, and yes, beer, in this spacious beast. And with the wheels, it was not too much to move around.

And with the ability to quickly breakdown and set up, it was great when we had to “claim our spot” or get ready to pack up! Click here to learn more. Jersey Mesh Cap: One of my unexpected favorites was the Jersey Mesh Cap (click here to learn more). The lightweight comfy cap was perfect for to keep the sun out of your eyes in the bright mid day sun! Click here for pricing. 18 oz. Viking Water Bottle: I was really surprised at how perfect and versatile this piece was when you are on a campsite. We all know the Viking is great for keeping coffee hot for hours…and this will do that. But it’s also great for keeping your water cold in the desert sun! Oh…and that lid is great for carrying (and keeping dirt out of the water!). Click here for more information. Athletic Cool Down Collar: Have I mentioned that we were running in the desert? Yeah. So we needed to work to keep cool. I put this cool down collar in the ice from the Coleman Cooler and wore this as a headband. This collar was awesome for those runs in the middle of the day!

Affordable and comfortable, you need something that will breathe when you are running over 15 miles of trails! This shirt did the trick for sure! Colorblock Hooded Fleece: Yes it is hot during the day. But the desert gets cool in the evening (especially after a long run). So I was super happy to have this comfy (and great looking) hooded fleece piece. Great to take the edge off the cool (or to get ready and warm up), this hoodie was a home run! This was an amazing experience…and I am glad I was able to be a part of it. But it would NOT have been the same without the great gear! Want to create an adventure?
