At Sparta, you’ll start with the 10K Super on Saturday morning, then depending on your finish time and goals, you may not have a lot of time to rest before the Sprint on the Saturday afternoon (a strong Greek coffee will help in between). You’ll have overnight to recover before the Beast follows on Sunday. Train with back-to-back same day and multi-day workouts.
Weather in southern Greece in November is perfect for racing, in Sparta the mornings are cold, before the sun warms everything up. By mid-morning, it can be quite hot. Bring layers and even something you can ditch before the start. Many bring hydration gear such as a vest for the Beast. The course crosses a river at several points; well draining footwear is a must.
