Running In the Heat! With the weather forecast showing high 20’s for race day, it can play a role in your performance. Below are some tips for a hot race day!

Pace yourself – The harder you run the more heat you make. The bigger you are, the more heat you make. The basic principle behind heat illness is that you are producing more heat than your body can get rid of. Adapting to the heat may mean a slower pace, but slower is better than not finishing the race.
Wear appropriate clothing – This should ideally be lightweight moisture management clothing designed for use in warmer conditions. Loose, breathable & light coloured clothing are recommended as certain clothes can keep the heat in.  Remember that as your running clothing becomes wetter, you may experience chafing. Consider taping sensitive areas such as nipples and using petroleum jelly to help prevent chafing.
Sweating – When sweat evaporates off your skin you lose heat. Sweating is less effective if the environment is hot or humid. Sweating is impaired if you become dehydrated. The more dehydrated you are the less effective your body is at losing heat. So avoiding dehydration is the key but even with adequate hydration overheating still can occur. We are all different in our abilities to lose heat. Some bodies are well adapted to losing heat, and others are not.
Sunscreen – You may be out in the sun for several hours so remember to apply a good quality sunscreen to all exposed areas before you leave home.
Water, Water, and More Water – Pouring water over your head and body can be an effective way of cooling. Grab a glass of water at every aid station and pour it on yourself (every aid station). And don’t forget some to drink as well. If it is hot at the start then drink cold fluids prior to the start. Bring some ice-cold water that you can pour on yourself just prior to starting.
Be careful not to overdrink – drinking too much water can be dangerous and lead to hyponatremia (water intoxication) – Although fluid consumption should be increased when running in the heat.  If you know it is going to be hot (or hotter than you are used to) then don’t wait until you feel hot (too late)
Heat Illness – Hot and humid weather increases the chances of dehydration, heat illness, and visiting the medical tent is not good. Taking precautions can make your day much more pleasant. If the illness thing doesn’t worry you maybe the fact that overheating will affect your performance will. If you do not feel well during or after the race please seek medical attention.
