How to prepare:

Each individual is different and the training and preparation for a run will vary based on one’s fitness levels. Here are some tips to help you train and run efficiently on the event day.
Warm up and stretch those muscles: Always stretch and warm-up your muscles before starting a run. Light stretches include toe touches, reaching for the sky, and side to side rotation with hands on the hips. Brisk walking and jumps on the spot will help you warm up.

Relax when you run: Don’t strain yourself when running. Maintain a relaxed posture and maintain a regular breathing. Avoid sudden jerks and movements that don’t seem natural.

Arms and fists: Keep your arms loose and unclench your fists. Let your arms move freely as you run.

Pace yourself: Start slowly, let your body warm up and then get into a steady comfortable pace. A good pace to maintain is one where you can talk while you are running and aim to finish strong!

Wear a cap: It is an outdoor event, so keep yourself protected from the sun with a cap and a sun block.

Water: Stay hydrated during the run. Take a sip of water BEFORE you feel thirsty and don’t wait until you have a parched throat. Sip slowly and do not gulp.

Drinking too much water during a run can be harmful as going thirsty. So take measured sips at regular intervals.

Alternate walking and running: If you are beginning to tire, slow down to a walking pace. Alternating between walking and running is a good way to cover a distance without tiring yourself out. If you are just starting out, this is a good way to train.

Stay motivated and enjoy your run: Focus on enjoying your run and that will keep you motivated to complete the distance. This is not a race and all participants are winners.

Our Wellness partners will be available at the venue to take you through some basic warm-up and stretches before the run.
