It's Race Week!

Try to approach your race it with a little bit of nervousness, excitement and be proud of where you are at right now. We are very very proud of you. 

We know a few of you are feeling tired right now, remember that this week is about taking it nice and easy but sticking to the plan. The hard work is done, now it's all about about getting your body ready for this challenge both physically and mentally.

Good Luck Marathoners!!
We have a few in our team doing the full marathon, starting at a different meeting point and different start time...good luck to you all and we will see you at the finish line!!

Make sure you are familiar with the Race Information including:

  • Race registration/Athlete Check In process

  • Race day transport to the start line - double check your shuttle departure time/pick up point if you are taking the shuttle. If you have your own transport much time do you need to allow to get to the race start?

  • Gear storage at the start line

  • Race rules

  • The course itself including toilets/aid stations

  • Check the weather forecast and be prepared for anything! Make sure you have the right gear. Not being prepared of unexpected conditions can ruin your race. 

  • Get your packing list ready so you can reduce any last minute stresses as much as possible!
    Phone chargers, watch chargers, nutrition...all those little things that will help you be as ready as possible for race day. 

Other News

  • We will send you a Race Day Newsletter the Thursday before race day so keep an eye out for that. 

  • Now is a good time to make sure you have all your gear for the race; nutrition, warm clothes/wet weather clothes just in case...write a list and check it twice!

This week's quick tip: 

'Stick to your programme and enjoy the will pay off on race day.'
