Medical Advisory for participants in the Hiranandani Thane Half Marathon on 12th Feb 2017

  • Adequate Training:

    A Half Marathon (21 Km), is a respectable distance and requires adequate preparation before taking part in it. The Hiranandani Thane Half Marathon route has a fair amount of elevation which requires more intense effort. Runners should have at least run one 15- 18 km distance in their last 3 or 4 weeks before taking part in the event. If this distance has not been covered as part of their training, they would be considered as not being adequately trained for the event and their ability to complete the distance would be in question.

  • Recent Illness:

    Runners who have been suffering from any fever / cold / cough in the past ten days and are on medication for the same may reconsider their decision to take part in the Half Marathon. Antibiotics and other medication can impact the ability to undertake strenuous athletic activity. Kindly consult your doctor.

  • Chest Discomfort During The Run:

    If during the course of the run a runner feels any discomfort in the upper part of the body he should stop running and seek medical advise. Such discomfort can be a pain in the jaw or a constriction around the body that is unusual, rapid breathlessness, etc. It is better to be safe than to be sorry.

  • Severe Pain In Limbs:

    If a runner feels any pain in the legs, or muscular cramps, that is unbearable and causes the runner to change the gait, it might be advisable to stop running and seek medical counsel before deciding on the further course of action.

  • Stay Hydrated:

    The weather may turn hot and humid and it is thus advisable to stay adequately hydrated at all times. The current position stand of the American College of Sports Medicine is to consume 150-200ml of water every 20-30 minutes. A wise hydration strategy starts from the day before.
