Never run at night before so a good idea to try your lights so you know how it works. Make sure you have layers to add this year it got very cold once the sun went down.

It was a stunning day but the temperature really dropped when the sun went down! I wish Id had a change of clothes before heading back out for the night run and make sure youve got a jacket to hand in your kit bag in the barn. I also didnt realise people being their own nutrition to leave on the table in the barn / aid station and a few people had also brought put up chairs in the barn for use during / after the race.
