I've lost count of how many races I've run— In blistering heat, freezing cold, day or night, home or abroad— but these are the the ten race kit essentials I never forget
Be and stay hydrated
As one coach once told me 'If you're dehydrated, it's game over'. Be sure you're good to go by topping up your levels in the week leading up to race day. I use SOS Rehydrate, £6.99 to enhance my water, having been proven to be as effective as an intravenous drip in treating mild to moderate dehydration.
