The night before the run or walk you will be feeling excited or anxious, so do not rely on having a good nights sleep. Do not worry, a single nights restless sleep will not affect your performance. Instead make sure you are well rested in the nights leading up to the run. Plan your pre run breakfast. Know what you are going to eat and when you are going to eat. Stick to a tried and tested food that you have used in training.
If you are travelling to the run bring food with you, stick to the food you know.
Never try anything new on the run. New shoes or a new a new type of food could sabotage your run.

Answers on what to do during ‘The Run’.
Find a pacer or chat to people before the run starts that are running at your pace.
Look for people that are running at your pace and let them lead.
It is a great way to keep your motivation but do not get carried away chasing faster runners at the start. You will feel it later on in the run. Everyone has high and low points of energy during the run. When you need a boost think how elated you will feel when you cross the finish line.
