Race Day Preparation
Let your legs and body recover from all the training you have been doing.
Some people advice not to do anything on the week leading up to race but I think it’s better to do something like a short run or walk 2-3 times before race day.
Do stretching exercises or yoga to help release tightness and tension in your body.

Hydration and Nutrition
Don’t water load the day before the race. Drink fluid regular throughout the weeks.
Focus on eating a healthy diet the week leading up to the event. Have a healthy balance of carbohydrates, protein and good fats. Limit your intake of sugar .Don’t try out new gels or supplement if you haven’t used them before
Know bus and race start times. (All this information will be in your race packs which you will receive in the post this week)
Familiarise yourself with route.
