What to do before the race
- . It will make things easier for you and others if you stick to the start group within your expected finish time. If in doubt go towards the back; at least if you are running well, you can be the one doing the overtaking rather than being overtaken.
What to do during the race
- . Allow a few metres before you try and pull in. Similarly, let runners past who are trying to overtake, and if possible move over to allow them the quickest way past.
What to do after the race
- . It’s always a big task for the organisers to get the venue back to its pre-race state, and their job will be a whole lot easier if runners take their rubbish home with them.
