You’re fit, limber and ready to Run Ballarat – so what else do you need to do to prepare?
Ballarat Health Services exercise physiologists say drinking water is number one – water helps maintain blood temperature, regulate body temperature and allows muscle contractions to take place.
Make sure you drink lots of water in the lead up to Run Ballarat day so you start the event hydrated.
A pre-race meal or snack should be easy to digest, rich in carbohydrates for fuel, and low in fuel.
Run Ballarat is on Sunday, October 23 starting from Ballarat High School.
An aerobics warm-up for the 12-kilometre run will start at 8.10am for an 8.30am start.
Events include a 12-kilometre and 6-kilometre run, a 6-kilometre family walk and a 3-kilometre walk or run.
This year finish line celebrations include a performance by X-Factor winner Cyrus Villanueva, supported by local singer Kailee O’Beirne.
Road marshals will be in place on all roads and paths affected by the event to monitor traffic and participants.
