Hydration Tips

Trail Running: How Much to Drink
This race takes place in a funny time of year for us here in the Midsouth, it can be 65 degrees one day and 90 degrees the next. Please watch the area weather as you plan your travels. How much you need to drink obviously depends on how long you are running and how much you are sweating, but here are some good basic guidelines for a run lasting 45 minutes or longer:

Pre-hydrate

Drink 17–20 fl. oz. about two hours before your run so you’ll start off properly hydrated.

Maintain hydration

Drink about 5–10 fl. oz. (or a few good long drinks) of water every 15–20 minutes while running.

Drink after

Post-exercise hydration gets your fluid levels back to normal and can help with recovery. For every pound lost while running, drink 16–24 fl. oz. of water.

If you’re doing a short run, say one that lasts 45 minutes or less, you may be able to forgo drinking water while you’re out there. However, if it’s really hot outside and you’ll be sweating a lot, carry and drink water regardless of how long you’ll be running.
