Running competition in cold climate

 

Dear friends !

 

 

I live in a place with a very mild climate, where temperatures a rarely below 65 F. Now I will participate in a 5 mile run in a cold climate, with expected temperatures of about 30 F. I have long running trousers, a good shirt and jacket as well as gloves and a hat, but I am not sure how to prepare for the race.

 

 

To get to the competition venue I need to drive for about an hour. Should I go there in normal clothes and then change ? What about after the race ? Should I bring warm clothes to put over my running dress ? What should I drink ?

 

 

Any help is welcome

 

 

Thanks in advance and best regards

 

 

Gunter
