Safety Tips For Runners


It is extremely important to know that running marathon (21/10 K) is an extremely strenuous physical activity in which you are subjecting your body to a high level of stress. It is therefore advisable that you seek a medical advice and undergo necessary medical tests to rule out any serious medical problem which otherwise may put you to a risk in participating in this activity. On marathon day-



  • Get adequate sleep the night before the race. Ensure you sleep very well on Saturday night since the night before a big race, you may not sleep too well.
  • The night before race day, have a dinner rich in carbohydrates, but do not overeat!
  • Snack light and arrive well before start time to avoid last minute anxiety & chaos.
  • Run at your own pace without being influenced by others around you.
  • It is essential to warm-up before the race. Exercise at lower pace in the first 5 minutes.
  • Cool-down gradually over the last 5 minutes at the end of the race. Do not stop suddenly.
  • Consume water or other re-hydration fluids at regular intervals, know your 'sweat rate' and consume fluid in proportion to it. If you don't know your sweat rate it would be ideal to drink 200-250 ml of fluids (available at water stations) every 20 minutes.
