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.
