The Birmingham 10k is my first race of the year (I was meant to run the Stafford Half but I fell ill so couldn’t). I have done quite a few of these races now so I know what bit and pieces I need to take with me. Here is what I took with me on a race day:
Bottle of water
http://vagnvagensbygg.se/firmenit/559 I don’t run with it but I make sure I am regularly drinking water up until I start. This is to prevent me from being dehydrated. I always drink all the water at the hydration stations as well, even if I am not thirsty to help keep me hydrated. I was dehydrated after I ran the Manchester 10k last year and I had a banging headache and felt rubbish for the rest of the day afterwards. I learnt my lesson.
Shorts and vest top
http://tennisclubpaimpol.fr/bisese/662 In races and in general I tend to run in shorts most of the time because I would be boiling hot if I ran in joggers. I prefer vest tops rather than a normal shirts however as I am running on behalf of #teamuob I will be wearing the blue top we have all been given. I always make sure they are microfibre so it can take the sweat away.

Garmin watch and phone
enter My Garmin watch (forerunner 325) I absolutely love, I use to track my progress and record on Strava. I used to use my phone to record my route on Strava but it drains the battery.

Joggers and jacket

You do usually get a free protein drink when you finish, I just take mine with me just incase.
My hair band has snapped in a dualathlon before and it is annoying having your hair everywhere, so I always take a spare.
I am going to have sore legs anyway so I don’t want to be sunburnt as well!
What do you take with you on race day?
