Make sure you are RACE DAY READY
04 May 2018
JUST OVER 2 DAYS TO GO! ARE YOU RACE DAY READY?
✅ Prepare for the weather, check forecasts in advance & be prepared!
✅ Wear suitable clothing which will protect you from the sun
✅ Bring Factor 50 sunscreen and apply 2 hours before if possible. Whether you’re running for over 2 hours or standing for an hour waiting on your team mates, make sure you are protected from the sun!
✅ Wear a hat or snood to protect your head from the sun
✅ Stay well hydrated. There will be 8 water stations with 330ml bottles which are light in weight to carry & will keep you hydrated until your next stop
✅ Nutrition - there’ll be 3 x Energy Drinks Stations (Powerade), 2 x Energy Gel Stations (High5) and one Nutrition Station (oranges). Use them & keep energised! If you feel you might need more than this on the day, please bring some spare gels etc with you
Medical advice from our Official Marathon Doctor Dr Aisling Diamond:
1: If you’ve been unwell over the last month eg cough, cold, chest pain, chest discomfort, do not participate!
2: If you’ve had any injuries over the last month, do not participate!
If you have any medical concerns which may impact on you participating on Monday, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
So take the time this weekend to get stocked up on everything you might need and BE PREPARED!
Very best of luck to you all!
