All track and field athletes need to take responsibility for their personal equipment needs and bring gear including spikes, gloves, their specific shot put, discus, or javelin. But a few other things are helpful for athletes in any events to have in their bags:
-Band-aids, both small and large, for mid-meet blisters on fingers, toes, or heels
-Water bottle/sports beverage of choice
-Energy snack of choice (bars, gels, crackers, etc.)
- Pain reliever (Advil, Tylenol, etc.)
-Warm-up jacket; even on a warm day, sprinters, jumpers, and hurdlers in particular need to stay warm between events
