What's On at The Expo

Talks from world leading experts in their field. These will be offering useful information to optimise your performance. There will be a chance to ask questions at the end, or follow up with personalised advice at the ARU Exercise testing consultancy stall within the Expo.

Talk 1: Dr Justin Roberts (Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Nutrition)

Start Times: 10:30, 12:30 and 14:30

Considerations for race day nutrition
After races, many runners often say they didn’t get their fuelling strategy right. But what are the right things to do? In this talk we will discuss some simple nutrition strategies to prepare for race day to help you achieve your goal.

Talk 2: Dr Dan Gordon (Principal Lecturer in Exercise Physiology)

Start Times: 11:00, 13:00 and 15:00

Pacing your run to maximise performance
With so many things to consider on race day we often forget about pacing ourselves and maximising our effort.  In this talk we will discuss some practical approaches that can help you maximise your potential during the race and ensure that your experience is more enjoyable.

Talk 3: Saucony Hurricanes

Start Times: 11:30, 13:30 and 15:30

Expert Panel Q&A
The panel of Saucony athletes will be on hand to answer any of your race questions and provide helpful hints and guidance on a range of topics including race preparation, race strategies and how to make this your best half marathon.

The talks are repeated 3 times in the day. There's no need to book, just arrive in good time to our East road campus and follow the signs.
