Tips & Tricks

  • Start Strong, but Steady: Begin with a strong and steady pace. The initial flat or slightly inclined sections are perfect for establishing a good rhythm.
  • Manage the Ascents: Focus on maintaining a consistent effort (not pace) on the climbs. Shorten your stride and use your arms for additional leverage.
  • Recover on Descents: Use the downhill segments to recover. Allow gravity to help you, but keep your pace controlled to avoid overstraining.
  • Finish with Power: As the terrain flattens near the end, prepare to increase your pace and finish strong.
  • Regular Training: Regularly training on the course before the actual run can significantly help in understanding the best spots to conserve energy or accelerate.
