I'm taking part in the full marathon this year (did the Robin Hood last year) and I'm a bit concerned about the drinks being handed out in cups. Has anyone found this a problem in the past getting enough hydration? I'm used to bottles which is far more convenient and am not keen on a bottle belt, nor have I trained with one.
Any advice please?
I've trained with about 500ml sports drink per 10 miles up to 22. I'm sure the drink situation will be adequate, perhaps I'm worrying unduly, but just wanted to be prepared for the day in case other people's experiences would advise carrying my own drinks.
I've trained well and am hoping for a PB so want to give myself the best ppossible chance!
Well I didn't really need my water i took with me. I had a few sips to help my jelly babies go does near the end. Cups were fine, at a lot of the stations people were giving out the advice of shaping them.
I walked with the cups of water, when i did try drinking whilst running it just went everywhere. I grabbed two cups at each station, and drunk some spilled some. More then enough I also have a nice collection of gels now so I can actually try them out on a future LSR
