Rainy Run Relay Tips

Patrick McCrann

Join Coach Patrick from Endurance Nation for another weekly endurance podcast. This week we break down how to successfully handle the logistics of a relay run in the rain. Epic runs are fun, but if you get them wrong…epically less so. When putting together a relay run, there are many moving logistic parts. One of the factors out of our control is the weather. In this podcast, we learn how to handle run relay races in all weather types, specifically, rain.

Key Talking Points:

  • How to Keep Your Gear Dry
  • Transition Key Points
  • Nutrition Guidance
  • Recommended Recovery
  • And more!

Additional Links and Resources:

  • A hat in the rain really helps, but if you wear one the headlamps won’t really work for you…consider a chest light: ALOVECO Outdoor Night Running Lights LED Chest Light Back Warning Light with Rechargeable Battery for Camping, Hiking, Running, Jogging, Outdoor Adventure
  • Also a running light matters, this would go ON TOP OF the chest light: Atlecko 360° Reflective LED Running, Cycling or Hiking Vest & Belt for Men, Women & Kids – Safe & Comfortable – Bright Lights for High Visibility, Excellent Battery Life – Perfect for Night & Morning
