What do I need on race day?
A Good Hat!
A light toque and a cap. Since it's in October, we can't tell you what the weather will be like. We think you should have a light wind protection with you, just in case.
You spend 1/3 of your life on your feet. You should always have good shoes and that is most true for runners. You need the correct shoes that provide the proper support for the unique way you run.
Most of the race is on Highway 8 which has excellent tree coverage until you get to Hecla Village. You will have excellent views of Lake Winnipeg for 8 kilometers of your Half Marathon. if the wind is high, you'll want some protection.
A little nutrition
Shot blocks, gels and other electrolytes can help your muscles on the longer races.
