Tips for night racing at YMCA Festival 5k in The Oldham Era

In the July 19 edition of The Oldham Era, staff writer and runner Tracy Harris tackles the obstacles presented by night races. She includes tips about nutrition, hydration and how to deal with sitting at a desk all day then racing a 5k.

The column also includes advice and a link to an online pace calculator to help participants determine how to adjust their pace for hotter temperatures — the current forecast for Friday is in the low 90s, and will likely be nearly that warm at race time.
