Helpful Tips for Participants

  • Try not to eat too much before the run.  If you prefer eating ahead of time try to do so by 11:00am
  • If you eat beforehand try to avoid protein rich foods
  • Bring a gel or bar along for the run just in case you become hungry
  • If you have a tendency to become dehydrated bring a bottle of water
  • You will be responsible for carrying anything you bring along for the run
  • If you are unsure how to dress, wear layers that wick sweat easily, such as a long sleeve and light packable jacket, paired with light gloves and hat in the winter months
  • Have proper road running shoes on
  • If you have medical concerns let the run leaders know ahead of time
  • Here are the gels we recommend using https://vanrunco.com/collections/huma-gel and Hornby Bars are great for bars.
