Training tips:
  •  Taper time!  It is too late to cram in more km’s. It’s time to rest, put in some fine-tuning in with short sharp runs.
  •  Test your gear  – do a couple of runs with the pack and the shoes you will be running in.
  •  Test your food.  You don’t want to be trying new things on race day.
  • Do a night run or two. It is important to know what expect after the sun sets on the 13th October.  Test your batteries and headlamps.
