    We know the week before, day before and morning off race week can be full of nerves and jitters – here are some tips to make sure you’re on top of your preparation, so you can be stress-free to the start line.


    • Rest up, reduce your training load (refer to our training programs) and get some extra sleep.
    • Keep an eye out for your Participant Instructions being sent straight to your inbox, this will have all the important information you need for race day.
    • Once you have your Participant Instructions check out where bag drop is located, where to find toilets and where to meet your loved ones after your run.


    • Get outside and get your legs ticking over for a light jog/walk – this helps prepare your body for what’s to come.
    • Our golden rule – never try anything new on race day – this means nutrition, footwear, and clothing!
    • Lay out all of your clothing ready to go – including your race bib and watch.
    • Have you breakfast ready to go.
    • Double check your journey to the event – we recommend public transport. Make sure allow plenty of time to get there so you have time to drop your bag and go to the bathroom.
    • Set your alarm and put your phone on charge!


    • Go to the toilet before you leave the house.
    • Allow extra time to arrive at the start line – so you’re not rushing to your wave start zone.
    • Put on your race bib and get ready to HAVE FUN!
