Health

As race organisers we are concerned with the health of our runners and any medical risks that maybe involved  with the race.

Cardiac risk in the young
One particular area that young athletes and their parents must be aware of is the risk of cardiac problems. There have been too many instances of young athletes suffering potentially fatal heart conditions without being conscious that they are at risk.  CRY is a charity that was established to raise awareness of conditions that can lead to the sudden cardiac death of young people. They operate a screening programme at a number of clinics around the UK and support this with mobile units that travel to other locations. Full information about CRY and their services can be found on their website at www.c-r-y.org.uk. Young people between the age of 14 and 35 who would like to have cardiac testing can go to www.testmyheart.org
