Running Tips and FAQ’s

Here are some tips from the race director.

Half Marathon Course.

Run with a hydration pack:  If this is your first trail half marathon a hydration pack is recommended, I ran the course on 60 degrees weather and my 3 liter hydration pack was enough for the 13.1  mile run (3 hr 7 mins run)

Hydrate and refill water bottle/hydration pack:  We will have aid stations along the course but we strongly recommend to refill and hydrate as much as you can at each station.

Energy food:  If you like the energy gels or bars, we recommend to bring at least 4 to 5 gels or 2 bars.

Caution:  Be extremely careful and watch were you step, there are some sections where the trail is very natural and it can be rough if caution is not taken.
