Ultra Marathons are extreme in every way. They push the human body to the edge and beyond and are generally run in some of the most inhospitable places in the world.
There are a number of potentially very serious risks associated with Ultra Marathons and proper training and equipment is essential.
Professional Training: Nothing can compare to professional training delivered by qualified trainers who can carefully guide you through how to safely learn and practice the required techniques in a controlled environment.
Medical Advice: Before taking part in a new sport or activity you should consult your doctor or other healthcare worker to identify any potential risks to your wellbeing. This is particularly important if you are pregnant, elderly, suffered previous injuries, suffering from a long term medical condition, or disabled. Whilst these conditions do not preclude you from taking part in most activities, getting advise can help you adapt to suit your individual needs.
