For many reasons, a runner and his crew MUST recon the route:
- To orient the runner and crew on the right road of the race
- To NOT get lost
- To orient the runner on the elevation of the route
- To orient the crew as to the location of food sources
- To give a good idea to new runners of the route how long exactly is this route
Don’t leave your race to chance.
Good for you if you lost your runner and he continues on the right road. What if he took a wrong one?
Just some thoughts.
Trust me…if you are new to this route – you can really get lost.
