Incentive Of Athens

The Athens Olympic StadiumThe Athens Marathon will be taking place on October 31 2010 and SOUTHERN RUNNING GUIDE is sending Chris Broadbent out to race in this historic event. We asked Chris to tell us how he is feeling in the run up to the race and why he was unable to resist the lure of this legendary route...

Poll - Pre-Race Breakfast

Bar Graph ImageThe current poll on is asking runners what they eat on race day morning, to fuel them for a big race. At the moment, 'Porridge' is a clear favourite with more than half of the vote. 'Cereal' and 'Toast and Jam' are your second favourites.

So far, nobody has told us that they would eat a piece of 'Fruit' or 'Energy Bar' before a race. Do you agree or disagree with the current result? Let us know by voting on our polls page.
