Advice for marathon runners in sunny weather from our chief medical officer

“We’re all looking forwards to a fantastic run on Sunday, with perfect weather conditions forecast.

I’d strongly advise doing your last few training runs with the high factor Sun Screen you’ll all be wearing on race day!

There’s only one thing worse than a sunscreen you’re not used to dripping in your eyes, and that’s visiting our tent with totally preventable sun burn!

Remember to drink and eat as you have done so during training.

On race day, there is a tendency to over-drink, particularly if it’s clear and sunny. Over-hydration, particularly with water, is far more dangerous than dehydration.”
