Raising the subject of fueling / hydration again- In the email from the race organizers yesterday it said electrolyte drinks after 13 miles which is great and I will probably now change my plan which was to run in my saloman back pack and carry my own fluid.
Are the cups with foil lids the kind of thing you get coffee to go in? ie can you grab them and drink while running- I am not planning on much fluid (less than 500ml for the whole race) and then only really to wash down a couple of gels.
I much prefer to get fluid from water stations but find stopping to drink it really puts me out of my stride hence why I was thinking of carrying my own.
That will likely be my plan JL2 a few gels and beans and take 500ml of fluid which I will plan on using up by mile 20- then hope I have had enough for the last 10k which includes a rather steep hill !!
