Traveling For Your Race? Here Are Nine Tips for Success
Jul 06, 2017
Now that we are full-swing into racing season, many endurance athletes are preparing for their big event of the year. Often times, unless one is lucky enough to live in a place like Boulder, CO, that big event involves some type of travel. “Destination races” -- which combine both the opportunity to complete an event and spend a week on vacation -- have become popular in recent years. While they are a great way to pursue endurance and travel goals simultaneously, these opportunities require extra preparation due to changes in routines, packing equipment, new dietary options and more. And if you plan to race in a different climate, you will also have to adapt your training to prepare for the change in weather. To help you tackle traveling and racing, we talked to a few SaltStick retailers and asked them to share their top tips for success. If you have any traveling tips of your own, please send us a tweet.
