Running races aren’t always about your speed or passing through the finish line, it goes beyond your physical abilities. Races are a great way to motivate yourself to get fit and can also be a platform for personal breakthroughs. Running makes you test your limits, but also makes you able to believe in yourself by taking control.
The race is not the only thing that is important. The preparation and training involved leading up to the race can prove even more exhilarating than the race itself. Many may not know how important it is to be ready on race day. With only a few months to go until the King of the Road race on October 23, most runners participating in the race are getting physically prepared to run the 5k, 16.8k and 21k course.

Surely, nobody wants to cross the finish line exhausted and in pain.
Here are a few tips that can get you closer to being crowned as this year’s King of the Road.
Remember, even after reading all these tips, you still have to prepare yourself mentally in finishing a personal breakthrough such as this.
