Tips for race day

1. A good nights rest on the Thursday and Friday nights prior to the event are essential.
2. Practice running at night at least once before the event, it can be tricky.
3. Make sure you have a set race plan. Give yourself goals for each leg to break the distance up into smaller bite sized sections.
4. Nutrition is key. You are out for an extended period, your body needs fuel, make sure to have a sufficient plan to keep those legs going!
5. It’s all in the head. Mind over matter. If you have wrapped your mind around getting through this time and distance, you are 3/4’s of the way there.
