Think race preparation:
If you are new to this, race preparation avoids any unwanted little happennings to put you off on the day, like forgetting to charge your GPS or wearing different shoes because you got changed in the dark. Yes this have happened to me.

My race checklist includes the following for the night before:

  1. Putting your clothes out, all stuff you have run in before including socks, undies, shorts, top/s. Nothing new, you don't want to chafe.
  2. Charge your Garmin, Tom Tom or whatever you use and put it out with your heartrate monitor.
  3. Fuel your water bottles and make sure they are standing upright for the night not sideways. Most runs have water stations, check what you are comfortable with.
  4. Fav running shoes, check their tread, shoe laces and for any other damage you may not have noticed before. Never run in new shoes in a race!
  5. If you are carrying a pouch, take $20, energy gels, just in case, your keys and phone. Spibelts are good for this.
  6. Running sunnies, make sure they are clean
  7. Cap, only tried and trusted one
  8. Go to the loo
  9. Headphones, most events prefer you don't wear headphones and for good reason but I have never seen anyone arrested for this!
  10. If in Winter, take an old T shirt you can remove once you start, makes it a little more comfortable in the cold mornings of June.
