PRINCESS HALF MARATHON WEEKEND HEAT ADVISORY

PRINCESS HALF MARATHON
HEAT ADVISORY

Due to warmer weather than anticipated, we encourage all participants to closely monitor their pace and not to over extend. This may not be the weekend for your personal best time.


We encourage you to be well-hydrated prior to the race and maintain fluid status with alternating water and electrolyte based hydration options throughout your race and the entire race weekend.


Also, remember to wear light colored clothing and dress as if it were 20 degrees warmer than the outside temperature at the time of the race start, realizing that the temperature may rise by 10 degrees during the course of the event.


We also recommend sunscreen for the final hour(s) of the race.


Slow down and ask for assistance at any early signs of heat illness. Heed these warnings seriously. Please review the Official Race Program for more details, and if at any time you require medical assistance, the medical staff can be found wearing green jackets and official black medical staff shirts.
