Preparation is key to running the best race you possibly can. Check out the tips below to help you prepare for the UpHill 5K, and remember "failure to prepare is to prepare for failure."

Get Plenty of Rest

Get plenty of rest the night before the big race. Plenty of rest ensures that your body will be able to perform at its peak during race day.

Eat Right

Pasta is a great food to eat the night before a race. It offers proper energy that your body will store away for race day.

Train Hard

Train Hard! If you want to perform at your best then you need to push your body past its limits. Hard work breeds success.

Have some Fun

Don't overtrain your body. Part of being a good runner is to ensure proper rest and relaxation.
