Health and Safety Guidelines
Participation in a marathon or a shorter race requires physical fitness and a healthy body.
Despite having trained for the race, some runners find themselves in physical distress during the race. We therefore ask you to abide by and pay attention to these instructions for your own protection and benefit.
The following instructions are not meant to replace a controlled training regimen, supervised and under the guidance of a certified trainer, or professional sports and health professionals.
1.It is recommended to undergo a medical examination by a doctor before beginning training. The examination should include a periodic physical fitness test (ergometric evaluation).
2.In the event of injury or illness, every “lost day” requires two make-up days of training in order to regain the pre-illness training level and pace. In the event that you experienced illness accompanied by fever, indigestion or diarrhea on the days immediately prior to the race, do not participate in the race! Consult with a physician and trainer regarding how to renew your training schedule.
3.Read and learn about heatstroke prevention and get in the habit of drinking a lot of water.
4.Pay attention to your diet, your sleep and other race preparations. During the race, stations offering drinks and nutritional supplements will be scattered along the route. Take advantage of them to quench your thirst, gain an energy boost and keep going. Don’t skip over any of the stations.
5.Prepare your race equipment and make sure that it is comfortable for you and appropriate for long distances.
6.Be sure to wear a hat. Sunglasses are also advised.
