New Members hints and tips:

  1. Don't eat a meal within about 2 hours before the race or run, and then try to make it a light meal such as toast or something that will be easily digested and give you energy.
  2. Don't drink too much in the way of alcohol the night before.
  3. Wear a good cushioned light racing shoe or training shoe.
  4. Don't go off too fast and if you have a training partner in the club try to run together for at least the first half of the race/run.
  5. If you are just starting to run races, try and treat them as training runs, but don't worry where you will finish and enjoy it.
  6. If it is windy tuck in behind someone else running a speed that is comfortable for yourself. This conserves your energy and they act as a free pacemaker for you.
  7. Talking uses up energy and breaks your own concentration, and can make the mouth dry.
  8. Never use a brand new pair of shoes.
  9. I like to use deep heat before a race to help prevent injuries from pulled muscles. Apply to the legs and stomach/chest.
  10. Don't run too hard within say 3/5 days of an event. If it is a long run like a marathon or a half marathon you may need to taper down your running. Don't be afraid to ask for advice.
  11. Wear the club vest.
  12. Numbers go on the front.
  13. Ask who else is running in the club, to find out the popular events, there is generally someone running every week.
  14. Ask if you need a lift.
  15. In cross country you will need a pair of spikes, unless it is very dry on the flatter courses such as Blaydon or Chester le Street.
  16. In a 10 mile or above don't forget sun cream on hot sunny days, sunglasses or a lightweight cap to protect you from the sun.
  17. Take regular small drinks in the longer races (Hydration). Races above 10km have to provide water.
  18. If your running at night or in poor visibility wear something relective and light in colour eg A high visibility vest. Be seen!
