  • Assign a slower leader to them.

  • Drama = Pulling the kid from the race especially at the last two events.

If there is extreme heat...

  • What can you do as a leader?

Bring sun block

  • At least SPF of 15 or higher

  • Remind guys that if they take shirt off because they are hot they will get burned and it may hurt rather than help

Tell kids to wear Sunglasses

  • Protects the eyes

  • Cools the body

Remind the students:Drink more water

  • Require them to bring a water bottle or provide them for before the race.

  • Marathon has good supply of water.

  • Drink every mile ++ (at least every 20 minutes)

  • No matter the weather students should try to drink every mile.

  • Remind students to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
