I've done races from 3hrs to 72hrs and here's my simple advice:

  1. Do shorter races, until the navigation, gear and hydration are second nature. Many long races will have a shorter sprint format (3hrs-5hrs) that brings the difficulty down a bit.

  2. Find a local Orienteering club and practice your navigation without the stress of multi-discipline sporting.

  3. Buy The Essential Wilderness Navigator: How to Find Your Way in the Great Outdoors, Second Edition.

  4. Set a timer for hydration...don't ever get thirsty.

  5. Hydrate with water or zero calorie electrolyte tablet only. Don't drink calories.

  6. Eat the same food when training that you'll eat in the race.

  7. Do multi-discipline training sessions and simulate transitions.

  8. Train outside only, in the woods, on dirt, in the heat.

  9. Don't consume caffeine while racing.
