Training for the Aintree 5K
If you are an experienced runner then you’re probably at the level of fitness that doesn’t require much training for a 5K run in Liverpool, but, experienced or not, it’s always worth running the distance before the race so you know you’re definitely up for the job! Whether you’re chasing a time or are simply out to enjoy the Aintree 5K in the iconic location, remember it’s the taking part that really counts! If you are training for your first 5K race remember to build up your miles slowly to avoid injury. On the day, stay well hydrated and be sure to have breakfast beforehand for fuel (think porridge or a bagel and peanut butter). Ensure you wear proper running shoes that are going to provide support for your feet and ankles and dress in lightweight clothing – there will be a bag drop available on the day of the race for coats, jackets and backpacks so it’s worth packing a few extra snacks to refuel after the run! Have a fantastic race!
