Shoe choices – spikes / trail shoe / road shoe 

 

Tips

Need – number (issued by Jane) same number for each race

Club LFR top – otherwise you don’t count

Car Share!

Gloves / hat / long sleeve top useful

Each race typically 5 miles.

Bin bag for start if cold

Position is key – not time.

Warm up – rough ground and cold muscles can = injury

Run as a pack – use other runners to ‘pull you along’

Use Fartlek skills

The shortest route isn’t always the easiest – run wide on muddy bends

Surge after corners / out of site / past obstacles etc.
