What is a Good Food Order Strategy for a 5K Race?


Q. I have 500 runners for a 5Khow many bagels, bananas and oranges should I get?thank you
A. I would anticipate each registered runner will receive one of each food item.  For safe measure, order another 10-15% of each item for overage purposes.  Discuss this strategy with your planning committee to ensure it is aligned with your budget as well as the advertising and registration details.  Have a successful race!
