Water/other for 10k

I do a few 10k runs, but am never sure what I need for this distance - I come from a background of short runs and long distances on the bike.  I usually take water, but would I benefit from anything in it?



  • No, I don't think so.

  • Amphetamines?
  • Don't bother with the water either.

    Don't need anything for a 10k. Make sure you are properly hydrated before your run or race. If you are a really slow runner and you are going to be out in the heat for a long time then you might want to carry a small water bottle but otherwise not.

  • Thanks for the advice. Lou, 'phet' makes me really thirsty but thanks for trying to be helpful to a newbie! image

  • Sorry - not very helpful post pub nonsense. I don't bother with anything unless its very hot weather. Cup of tea before I set off, then a glass of milk when I finish.
  • Depends how hot it is, You won't run a 10K in Dubai in 30C + without water.
