Calling all 2XU Race participants, come join us and prepare for your best race ever! Our lead up run will help familiarise you with the final few kilometers of the actual race route. Your pacers will guide you on when to push hard, or when to adjust your pace and ensure you meet your targets! Join us to recognize the exact landmarks, every km to the finish line and build your confidence, even if your GPS watch is off.
Attend our hands-on running workshop, learn what the best running gait is, how to lower the risk of injuries, and how to use gravity to help you run faster with the same effort. Know the correct biomechanics of running, learn from the QnA sessions, covering shoe selection, nutrition, hydration strategies, mental toughness and motivation.
Choose the right session, depending on your race. Both runs start at Marina Square, your race pack collection venue
