Make sure you are RACE DAY READY

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
