Running is a fun activity but running in a race, like engagement in any activity, also comes with attendant risks, which you should be aware of, and only then enter. If you are running the marathon especially, prepare well, for running in the heat and humidity and running with some reflective strips on your T shirt and shoes and cap and arms and a light. We want you safe. This run is in very humid weather and should also require some ingestion of salty items - sports drinks or other solids or liquids to prevent cramping and dehydration. Run with a water bottle and some salt to replenish lost salts apart from fluids.
