Product Description

The medical care plan for road races can vary from simple to complex. Larger races are set up to deliver onsite care to reduce the patient load on the community medical system and have systems in place to respond to life-threatening medial problems. All races, including smaller races, should develop a medical plan for runner safety that has a written set of safety parameters. This comprehensive guide from Dr. William O. Roberts, medical director of the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon and a board member for the International Institute of Race Medicine (IIRM), covers the basics of race day medical planning and preparation.
