Every Monday from now until race time Greg willspoil us with some words of wisdom in the ‘McMillan tip of the Week’!
For the fifth instalment of the ‘McMillan Tip of the Week’ see below!
“Test your equipment in training before race week arrives. Break in your shoes (have at least two pairs at your deposal), test your hydration equipment, make sure your clothing systems are efficient, light and ensure your selected race-day nutrition agrees with you. Don’t try anything new on race day.”
