Medical Advice

Completing a triathlon and training for a triathlon is physically demanding. As a competitor it is important that you are physically capable of undertaking a challenge of this nature.

If you have any known medical condition (such as diabetes, asthma, allergy to penicillin, etc) inform us on the day or write all medical details on the back of your race number.

Whether you have a medical condition or not, if you feel unwell on race day – DO NOT RACE!

If you have flu, a feverish cold or a tummy bug, do not train until you have fully recovered. Then re-start gently and build up gradually.

Do not attempt to catch up on lost mileage after illness or injury; this may cause further damage or illness.

To reduce injury risk, train on soft surfaces when you can, especially on easy training days. Vary routes; do not always use the same shoes and run on
differing cambers, hills, etc.

If you are in any doubt about your physical capacity to undertake a Triathlon please consult your GP.
