Bay 2 Bay Training Program Week 10

Bay 2 Bay Training Program Week 10

Great work in completing week 9.  You have done so well. Your long run starts to decrease this week as you start to gradually taper your kilometres leading into the Bay To Bay.  

If you haven’t already started to think about the logistics of the race, now is a good time. Things to consider are how you are going to get to and from the race. As part of this, make sure you plan to arrive with ample time before the race.

Other things to factor in the morning of the race are whether or not you will need to pick up your race number if it isn’t getting posted to you and if you don’t plan on picking it up on the day before. Also consider if you will be leaving your belongings such as warm clothes, at the start line. If so, allow time to place your bag.  It’s good to plan when and where to meet your family and friends after the race.

There’s information on the Bay To Bay website which covers off on everything and also a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section.
