Prevention is better than cure!

Grandma Gurney's secret formula has kept young Stephen on the run for over 20 years. After your noggin, the single most important body bit to look after in adventure racing is your feet. Keeping them dry and free of those prune wrinkles is important, and this Goo is not only helpful in this but it reduces friction too. Goo is great on hands, armpits, crotches, butt cheeks and nipples! It is fantastic for kayaking in preventing blisters on hands. It's even been useful in remedying nappy rash!

While Grandma Gurney's good ol' Goo formula has been upgraded to the latest silicon technology, we've retained her tried and true Tea-Tree antiseptic additive which is great for preventing infections. A triple-whammy product. Water proofing - Friction reducing - Infection protection!

PREVENT this by using Gurney Goo

Gurney Goo™ comes in 10ml pocket size tubes, 85ml standard tubes, and two closeout sizes while stocks last: 100 ml pottles, and 300 ml tubs. 

The pocket size tube is best for individual users during races - carry a couple per person in a team.  This also acts as an insurance policy - if one person on a team runs out everyone can share, unlike the horrible consequences of the team's only standard tube being lost which results in injuries such as the one on the right! 

The standard tubes are best for everyday use while training, and as a base camp team supply while racing, if logistically possible.

Before racing/exercise apply GurneyGoo™ liberally to areas prone to friction eg toes, crotch, nipples, feet, armpits, shoulders in vicinity of pack straps.

For the best protection, rub in a moderate amount 12 hours before start in addition to the liberal layer at the start.

To prevent hand blisters during long kayaking sessions: thoroughly rub GurneyGoo™ into hands up to 8 hours before start (eg night before), and no closer than 1 hour before the start of your race.

For some of us, a shower on waking on race morning is a nice way to wake up, warm up, and soothe any pre-race nerves. If you've applied GurneyGoo the night before (a great idea for maximum chaffing prevention), then a light shower won't remove the all important component of the "night -before" GurneyGoo. 
The all important bit is that some GurneyGoo will remain, having had your sleep time to "soak in" to the outer layers of epidermis. A light rinse in the shower won't wash this off much at all. If you scrub with soap and flannel and hot water, then yes you'll remove 90% of this, so avoid scrubbing and keep the shower short.
 
So, a shower is all good so long as you don't scrub the bits you've applied the GurneyGoo to.
 
After your shower, give your bits a second application of Gurney Goo and you're all set to go!
The only exception is kayaking fingers if it's less than 2 hours before the event, in which case, make sure your shower is more than 2 hours before and apply Goo sparingly, and vigorously rub your hands together to heat and absorb.
 
If it's a long and chaffing-prone event, then you might also consider applying some goo to the clothing that can cause chaffing in addition to your skin. eg cycle chamois, running short crotch, sox, bra strap, kayak pants, etc.
