So what do you need to know for race day?
The Grouse Grind
For hikers not participating in Seek the Peak, know that the Grouse Grind trail is open, though us runners would certainly appreciate if you pushed your hike until later in the day. With hundreds of race participants climbing the trail and hoping for a successful finish, it will certainly be busy. If you do need to climb the Grind during our race, remember to stick to the right and pass on the left.
Stretch and Hydrate
This week is all about arriving to the start line injury free, so make sure you stretch and hydrate this week. With the warm weather upon us, it’s even more important that we keep our muscles loose and ensure we aren’t faced with dehydration on race day.
Do you know what you’re wearing?
Whenever I used to change my attire on race day, my friend, Brian, used to express his loving disapproval. Choose gear that you are comfortable running and climbing in. Avoid the desire to pick-up any new attire close to race day.
Happy race week, runners! I can’t wait to see you all at the start line on June 14.
