I've just signed up for the Coniston Trail Race in October and being the first trail run that I have done was looking for some advice e.g. is it a good idea to carry some water, water proof jacket etc?
Anyway, I am looking forward to it. Cheers, Dingbat.

Hi Dingbat, it says on the webpage that there is a water station at about half way. This is my first crack at this as well, as for the raincoat I will be playing it by ear, if looks like I need one I will use it all depends on the weather on the day really.

Yep, you're right. I think I will do the same. Maybe take some gel stuff... just in case.

Yep, I've done a lot of hill running and have done some running on forest trails etc but never been in an actual trail race before.
