Happy Race Day!
If this has been the first fun run you have trained for, it may feel like it has been a long time coming! For those seasoned runners, it may feel as though the warmer weather has been quickly upon us and just as quick as the training has gone, race day has arrived.
Regardless, we are here now so let’s make the most of it.
Final Race Day Survival Tips!
- Don’t be stressed by “the pack” – the crowd’s pace may be faster than you are use to, try not be swept up in it, stick to the pace you have trained.
- Don’t waste energy trying to dodge people – as the group faces the first ascent up View Street, people will naturally fall into place. Conserve your energy for the climb, no point wasting it on weaving between competitors.
- Use toilets and drink stations appropriately. If you wouldn’t normally have a drink on your 10km do not feel pressured to take water on the day!
- Enjoy – smile for the cameras and feel proud of the effort you have put in to get here!
Look forward to seeing you after the race; be sure to drop by the Fusion Physiotherapy tent for your post race massage!
