- Calling adventure racers/ ultra endurance officionados
So having done some open 5 events, a 2 day stage race and a 7 hour point to point adventure race I am looking at a 12 hour race. The time/ distance will be hard but not impossible for me. But it starts at midnight.
So tips/ advice on racing through the small hours of Saturday morning after being at work all day Friday? Suck it up? Lots of caffeine?
This is the race….

Just get up progressively later the week before if possible? Would advise against caffeine, if you’re tired and wired at the same time you’ll be inclined to make mistakes, which might hurt. Depending on how caffeine affects you, you might also spend a good part of your 12 hours trying to find a toilet.Posted 4 years agoalwillisMember
Getting up later was my first thought, but currently working 7-3 shifts, so it will mean being up from Friday at 6ish until Saturday lunchtime. I’m thinking it will be more of a case of eating and drinking well before and during, and trying to concentrate alot harder!
Great point on the caffeine, hadn’t thought of that!Posted 4 years ago
