- sleeping bag

- blister patches/sterilised safety pins for popping blisters/plasters
- socks (a thin pair (like thousand-mile socks) under a thick pair)

- tissues/toiletries/gel handwash/rosary beads/mobile/wallet/passport/boarding passes/alarm clock/after sun cream/wipes

- well broken in walking shoes or runners (NOT a pair that you buy a month before). You need to have walked at least 50 miles in a new pair of walking shoes (less if you wear trainers). Get plenty of walking done in the 2 months run up to the pilgrimage if you can(three or four 5 mile walks per week ) - the pilgrimage is very tough (110km/3 days) and can lead to chronic injuries if not adequately prepared for.

- fleece/bandana
- snacks
- bottle of water (frequent refills along the way)
- sun hat (to be worn at all times even in cloud cover to prevent sun stroke)

- wipes

3) Food: All meals are provided (bring your own snacks)
