Rise and shine.

Get up at least three hours be­fore the start so you have time to eat, drink, and use the bath­room. Aim to be at the start­ing area at least an hour in ad­vance – ear­lier if it’s a large race – to get your bear­ings and use the bath­room again.

Get in line.

Once at the race, line up for a por­taloo, even if you don’t need to go. Na­ture may call by the time you get to the front. Head into the start­ing pen 15 min­utes be­fore go-time – you may be re­quired to line up sooner at a large event.
