TWAN 28.1

The first big race of the season is nearly upon us all.

You get to test your fitness against the course.

You get to finally race after many months of training.


But racing does not just magically happen.

You must be prepared to give your best effort.

You best effort is worth much more when you own the whole process


Think about the course

What techniques and where to best employ them.

What effort is required for each distance?

(This evening I will be posting to the web site sample race plans)

Thinks about your sleep, hydration, nutrition and plan to complete your other responsibilities.


Your prep race packing (water, food, extra clothing, etc)

Your warm up (which will be a running warm-up all weekend) ideas are here

Your race!

Your cool down.

Those are all yours

don’t expect your parents to manage all that


Thank them now for they will also be busy:

Supporting the team

Supporting the event


Start lists will be posted here.and/or on the event web site


More event info will be sent the night before each race.
