Medical Advice

Completing and training for a multisport event 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.

If you have COVID it is even more important to follow these guidelines and to also follow medical advice, even consult your GP, before restarting training or competing. If you are testing +ive for COVID on no account should you attend the race, whether to compete or spectate.

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 our event please consult your GP.
