Start Easy

Don’t expect to be able to run 5km first go, this is something to build towards. Start with a short distance and don’t feel pressured to run the whole time.

DON'T THINK ABOUT PACE

If you try to run too fast too quickly you will burn out and not make your full distance. Keep a steady pace and then later you can build up speed.

FOLLOW A TRAINING PLAN

Having a set plan/program will help you stay on track and motivated. It will be more efficient in your use of running/workout time.

RUN IN A GROUP

Running and training with a friend helps with motivation and accountability, they are someone to lean on when you need that extra push. Having a run buddy keeps it fun! There are also many running squads and groups around who always love to welcome new members.

MUSIC

Find a good playlist to keep you company and upbeat while you run. Time goes faster with a good song.

NUTRITION

Make sure you are eating enough nutritious food. Food is fuel for your body and it is important to keep energy levels high, otherwise workouts will feel harder.

MAKE SURE YOU USE THE RIGHT GEAR

As with any activity, having the right gear will help. Not every sneaker is designed for running, it is important you are wearing shoes with the right support and cushioning for you. Your feet and joints will thank you later!

WHAT TO EXPECT ON RACE DAY

We recommend you arrive 45 minutes to 1 hour before your scheduled race start. Reason being its important to get there early enough to find a park and to give you time so you’re not scrambling around stressed trying to figure out where you need to be.

PREPARATION

PREPARATION

Ensuring you are warmed up for your run is quite important to increase blood flow and oxygen to your muscles to help you perform at your best.

NUTRITION

Advanced Sports Dietitian, Chloe Mcloed says you should consume a meal 1-4 hours before your race. Ensure this meal is familiar and you have practiced it in training prior to prevent gastrointestinal issues during the race.
