If you're getting involved in Wellington's biggest running event Cigna Round the Bays, you'll be needing to get yourself some good solid carb-loading done the day before.

We're here to hook you up with the goods - we'll be specialing big plates of pasta (meat, vege and gluten free options) with a bit of garlic bread on the side for only $9 if you bring in your race bib ($14 without one). Pasta is available from 12pm, take away or eat in.

Come get involved with the festivities before the big race day - we'll have live music kicking off from 4pm and lots of smoothie and fresh juice goodness on offer.

We'll see you on race day too - we'll be waiting at the finish, dishing out jet planes and moral support, as well as a free BBQ, ice blocks and face painting. Go team.

Carb Science

"When you eat a bowl of spaghetti, most of the carbs are stored as glycogen in your muscles and liver. Glycogen is your body's most easily accessible form of energy, but it's not the only source. During a half or full marathon you burn both glycogen and fat. But the latter is not as efficient, which means your body has to work harder to convert it into fuel. Proper carbo-loading—or filling your muscles to the brim with glycogen—won't make you faster, but it will allow you to run your best and, if you race smartly, avoid the wall,"
