In Singapore’s hot and humid climate it is paramount to stay well-hydrated to avoid a heat injury.
Drink sufficiently pre-event. Your fluid intake should consist of a combination of water and electrolyte drinks. Avoid caffeinated drinks.
Make good use of the frequent drink stations along the running route and at the finish line.
Don’t get too carried away by the excitement of race start. Adapt to your fitness level, the weather and other running conditions. Especially if you are not a regular runner, it’s a good idea to start off at a pace that is well within your physical comfort zone.
If you feel overly tired and giddy, or if you develop a headache and feel over-heated, please slow down.
Apart from undue fatigue, if you start to have difficulty breathing, develop chest pain, or re-discover that old injury you have been ignoring, it would be a good idea to stop and seek medical attention.
If you have had an illness with fever in the week before the race, it may be wise to sit out the race. If you decide to give it a go, start out at a slower pace than usual, and if you start to feel unwell, please stop and seek medical help.
With this event we hope to encourage people to take up running and adopt a healthy lifestyle; exercise regularly and eat healthy. However, you should be aware of your physical abilities and whether you are able to compete in this event without a health risk.
