Getting Enough Protein

We’re all great at preparing for our long runs each weekend. We drink loads of water the day/night before, eat bowls of pasta or spuds (or sweeter stuff!). Some of us get up early for our porridge and hit the sack again for another hour before heading out (that would be those without babies/toddlers hanging out of them!).

But we often let our bodies down AFTER our run. Read more here about how Viking runners need to be refuelling after training!

Regatta Great Outdoors are delighted to be the clothing sponsor for the event and have some clothing tips to make sure you are all set for the big day:

Top Tips –

Make sure you go on a run with your planned outfit prior to running your marathon. This is to make sure you are comfortable and not irritated by your clothes.

If you have new shoes, run at least 10 miles in your shoes before the big day, this will help you see whether your shoes will cause any pain or blisters, if they do, get a new pair.

Wear breathable clothing to keep you cool and comfortable.

Wear lightweight socks and socks that you would wear when training.

Top Regatta T-shirts -

This year events include the Full, Half and Quarter Marathon as well as the all new three person relay team offering an option for all running levels. Over ten music acts will line the 26.2 mile route to entertain and distract the runners while over 200 stewards will oversee the safety of participants. A family fun event will take place at the finish line in the RSC on the Cork Road and all are welcome to attend to show their support.
