All the Runners are requested to take appropriate precautions for running in summer

  1. Hydrate properly before, during, and after your run. Warmer temps mean upping your fluid intake. Before your run, try to drink at least eight ounces of water or sports drink every hour so your perspiration systems are in tip-top shape. Consider carrying fluids with you on the run in a water belt. Replenish post-run with an electrolyte-filled sports drink.
  2. Wear light-coloured, loose-fitting clothes. Reflect the sun’s rays away from you (rather than absorbing them with dark gear), and avoid tight attire that won’t allow a breeze to get through. Steer clear of sweat-soaking cotton; instead, wearing moisture-wicking synthetic fabrics.
  3. Grab the sunscreen. Not only will you avoid harmful ultraviolet rays, but a layer of the stuff will keep your skin and body temperature lower. Don’t forget to apply on overcast days as well. Use SPF 50 or higher.
  4. Pick the right headgear. You lose much of your body heat through your head, which is a good thing during the summer. Don’t cap it off with a snug, thick fabric hat. Instead, opt for a visor or roomier lid with breathable mesh.
  5. Try precooling. Lowering your body temperature in the hour before you run in the heat slows the rate at which your core temperature rises once you’re out the door. That translates into being able to run farther or faster than would otherwise be possible in the heat.
  6. Listen to your body – When running, if you become dizzy, nauseated, have the chills, or cease to sweat…. STOP RUNNING, find shade, and drink water or a fluid replacement drink. If you do not feel better, get help. Heatstroke occurs when the body fails to regulate its own temperature, and the body temperature continues to rise. Symptoms of heatstroke include mental changes (such as confusion, delirium, or unconsciousness) and skin that is red, hot, and dry, even under the armpits. Heatstroke is a life-threatening medical emergency, requiring emergency medical treatment.
  7. Stay hydrated, cool, and safe this summer!
Guidelines
  1. Parking – Please park your vehicles at the designated parking zones only.
  2. Runners are requested to carry a handheld sipper or bottle to carry water/electrolyte along with them during the run to hydrate well, and we see most of the runners fail to adhere to this, we request all the runners to carry a bottle during the run and don’t rely completely on SAG vehicles
  3. Post run Hydration – Runners are requested to carry a liter of water in your vehicle to hydrate yourself post run so that you need not wait until the SAG car return back,
  4. The SAG support is only on the run and not for post run hydration.
  5. Always carry a ID proof, emergency contact details, and some cash during the runs.
  6. Run against traffic if running on the road. If running on the sidewalk or multi-use trails, travel on the right and pass on the left.
  7. Never run more than two abreast if you are running in a group.
  8. Don’t run down the middle of the road.
  9. If you are running an out-and-back route, don’t just make a sudden U-turn at your turnaround point. Stop, step to the right to allow oncoming traffic the opportunity to pass. Ensure the road or trail is clear of oncoming traffic (runners, cyclists, etc.) then make your U-turn. Making a sudden U-turn without looking over your shoulder is a good way to get hit.
  10. Alert pedestrians when you are passing them – don’t assume they are aware of their surroundings. A simple “on your left” warning will suffice.
  11. Be alert on blind curves.
  12. Stop at stop signs and ensure oncoming traffic yields to you before proceeding across a road. Don’t assume cars will stop if you are entering a crosswalk.
  13. Respect private property along your route. Don’t relieve yourself in the neighbor’s bushes.
  14. Don’t litter. If you can’t find a trash can, carry your trash home.
  15. Ignore verbal harassment and do not verbally harass others. Use discretion in acknowledging strangers. Look directly at others and be observant, but keep your distance and keep moving.
  16. Wear reflective material if you must run before dawn or after dark. Avoid running on the street when it is dark.
  17. CALL POLICE IMMEDIATELY if something happens to you or someone else, or you notice anyone out of the ordinary. It is important to report incidents immediately
