What should I wear and bring on race day?

On race day, it is important to dress comfortably and appropriately for the weather. We recommend wearing moisture-wicking clothing and comfortable running shoes. It's also a good idea to bring a hat or sunglasses to protect yourself from the sun. It is also important to bring enough water and electrolytes to keep yourself hydrated during the event. There are aid stations on course with water and electrolytes. A small bag or backpack can be useful to carry water, snacks, and any other personal items you may need during the event. Additionally, it is a good idea to bring a light jacket or sweater in case of changing weather conditions. It is important to check the forecast and dress accordingly. We recommend that you also bring a mobile phone and any emergency contact information in case of an emergency.
