Hydration Tips for Ultra Runners
Hydration can be confusing for runners at the best of times, let alone during summer or training ultras! We’ve tried to help simplify it with this handy guide. Print it off and keep it on the fridge.
Grab Your Compulsory Kit
Nothing new on race day! Make sure the kit you take to your race has been tried, tested and most of all - comfortable
You may not realise it but in any race you make hundreds, if not thousands, of decisions. Whilst each decision may seem small, cumulatively they’ll make or break your race.
Read Dan’s blog about how thinking about these in advance can work to your advantage come race day.
