Medical Risks: The MUMBAI ULTRA is a physically challenging event and participation in it presents medical risks, many of which can be extremely serious or can be fatal in very rare occasion. Participation in this event is at the runner’s own risk, cost and consequence. Although Run Management has medical personnel at various points along the course to provide necessary medical care, the inaccessibility of much of the route will make it difficult or impossible for medical assistance to reach the runner immediately. Participants are encouraged to see their own medical doctor prior to the Run regarding any physical or medical limitations before attempting the Run and to obviate any doubts as to any personal health risk for the participant to participate in this event. Runners should be knowledgeable about the stress effects attendant to participation in ultra events. It is important for each entrant to recognize the potential physical and mental stresses, which may evolve from participation in this Run. Runners may be subject to extremes of heat and cold, hypothermia, hyperthermia, dehydration, hypoglycemia, hypernatremia, disorientation and mental and physical exhaustion. Run Management and the medical staff strive to work with runners. They will do all they reasonably can to ensure “safe passage”, but ultimately runners must understand their own limitations. This is one event where it is better to follow the dictates of your body — not your ambitions! Adequate physical and mental conditioning prior to the Run is mandatory. If you have not been able to prepare properly, do not attempt to run! Runners should appreciate the risks associated with participation in this event. Actions may have to be taken on your behalf under extreme time constraints and adverse circumstances. We will make reasonable efforts to give assistance whenever possible. Ultimately and primarily you are in charge, and you are likely to be solely responsible for creating your own crisis that we must then respond to. Be careful, be responsible, and do not exceed your own abilities and limitations.


Some of the main risks of the Run, but certainly not all of them, are listed. These should be understood and remembered by all runners, before and during the event. Please note that death can result from several of the risk conditions discussed below or from other aspects of participation in the MUMBAI ULTRA marathon. Renal Shutdown: Cases of renal shutdown (acute renal failure) have been reported in other ultra marathons. Renal shutdown occurs from muscle tissue injury that causes the release of myoglobin, a protein material, into the blood plasma. Myoglobin is cleared from the blood stream by the kidneys and will look brownish-colored in the urine. Adequate hydration will help flush myoglobin through the kidneys. Overwhelming amounts of myoglobin may clog the filtering system of the kidneys either partially or totally. If not treated, renal shutdown can cause permanent impairment of kidney function.


Heat Stroke/Hyperthermia: Heat exhaustion and heat stroke are serious risks. These conditions can cause death, kidney failure and brain damage. It is important that runners be aware of the symptoms of impending heat injury. These include but are not limited to: nausea, vomiting, headache, dizziness, faintness, irritability, lassitude, confusion, weakness, and rapid heart rate. Impending heat stroke may be preceded by a decrease in sweating and the appearance of goose bumps on the skin, especially over the hest. Heat stroke may progress from minimal symptoms to complete collapse in a very short period of time. Remember that your muscles produce tremendous amounts of heat when running for long distance. The faster the pace, the more heat is produced. A light-colored shirt and cap, particularly if kept wet during the Race, can help. Acclimatization to heat requires approximately two weeks. It is recommend to train for 90 minutes in 25 degree C. heat or greater for at least two weeks prior to the Run if at all possible. If signs of heat exhaustion occur, we recommend rapid cooling by applying ice to the groin, neck and armpits. . In addition to drinking at checkpoints, runners will be encouraged to carry fluids between checkpoints. To accurately measure fluid intake and output balance, weigh yourself before and after your training runs. This will help you establish your personal fluid requirements (especially during the heat of the day).

Remember to replace lost electrolytes lost from sweat along with lost fluids. Every runner has different needs that should be determined during training. Risks Associated with Low Sodium and Chloride Counts: Low sodium levels (hypernatremia) in ultra marathon runners have been associated with severe illness requiring hospitalization. It is important for long-distance athletes to use fluids containing electrolytes to replace the water and salts lost during exercise. WATER INTAKE ALONE IS NOT SUFFICIENT, as water intoxication and possibly death may result. This problem may in fact worsen after the Race, as the non-electrolyte-containing fluid, which has been accumulating in the stomach, is absorbed. Potassium and calcium replacement may also be important, although these levels change less with fluid loss and replenishment. Signs and symptoms of hyponatremia include; weight gain, bloating, nausea, vomiting, headache, confusion, incoordination, dizziness, muscle twitching/cramping and fatigue. If left untreated, it may progress to seizures, pulmonary and cerebral edema, coma and death. There are two ways to put oneself at risk of hyponatremia: 1) over-hydration (with water or even electrolyte- containing sports drinks) and 2) replacing sweat with hypotonic fluids. Weight gain of greater than 3% should alert a runner to stop drinking, slow down and allow the body to readjust its fluid status through urination of excess fluids, after which electrolyte fluids or high sodium containing foods such as bouillon cubes can be consumed. Risks of hypernatremia include weight gain (though this is not necessary for the condition to develop), female runners, smaller body size, slower runners, and low sweat rate. Risks of hypernatremia can be minimized by acclimatizing to the heat, training the endocrine system, salting foods a few days prior to the Run, matching fluid and electrolyte intake to sweat losses and monitoring weight. The best way to achieve proper electrolyte and fluid balance is to hydrate with fluids containing proper amounts of electrolytes and to replace with sodium-containing foods or supplements if required, and as determined during your training. Potassium, while present in many electrolyte-replacement solutions, may also be replaced with fruit, such as bananas or oranges. Beer or other alcoholic beverages should not be taken at any time during the Run. Electrolyte-containing fluids should be continued after the Run until the gastrointestinal tract is fully functional, which may take several hours. Once the gut is working and adequate hydration has occurred, the normal balance of thirst, hunger, digestion and kidney filtration will maintain the proper balance of fluids and electrolytes.

Effects of Cold/Hypothermia: Temperatures will likely be warm during the run, but be prepared for changeable cold weather, even during the middle of the race. Hypothermia is a potentially serious risk, especially running late in the evening through to early nightfall since one’s energy reserves will have been depleted from 10 to 12 hours of running. Hypothermia can strike very quickly, particularly when pace slows from exhaustion or injury. The initial warning signs of hypothermia often include lethargy, disorientation and confusion. The runner will feel very cold with uncontrolled shivering and may become confused, unaware of the surroundings, and may possibly be an immediate danger to himself/ herself. Staying well nourished, adequately hydrated and appropriately clothed will help avoid hypothermia. It is important that runners have access to warm clothing through their drop bags. If there is any question, carry a light jacket when you leave the main Aid Station.

Use of Drugs: No drugs of any kind should be taken before, during or immediately after the Run! Many drugs can increase the risk of heat stroke. A partial list of problem drugs includes amphetamines, tranquilizers, and diuretics. Injuries From Falling: Falling or accident is an ever-present danger on the Ultra marathon running on the road , with potentially serious consequences. Muscle Necrosis: It has been found that some degree of muscle cell death in the legs occurs from participation in the Run. The recovery can take several months. This seems to be a bigger problem in runners who become dehydrated or have overexerted themselves. Medical analysis of blood samples taken from ultra runners shows that this occurs to some degree in all runners.

Overuse Injuries: Obviously, innumerable overuse injuries can occur, especially in the knee and the ankle. Sprains and fractures can easily occur on these roads. Blisters may cause you to have a sore day or in severe circumstances may prevent you from finishing. Common Fatigue: One of the dangers you will encounter is fatigue. Fatigue, combined with the effects of dehydration, hypothermia, hyperthermia, hypernatremia, hypoglycemia and other debilitating conditions can produce disorientation and irrationality. If you do become injured, exhausted or ill, STAY. You will be found there either by another runner, or the volunteer that monitor the progress of runners during the event. If you feel dizzy, disoriented or confused, do not risk falling. Sit or lie down on the road until you recover or are found. An unconscious runner even a few feet off the road could be impossible to find until it is too late. If individuals who are not associated with Run Management assist you and you elect to leave the road, you MUST notify the official at the nearest checkpoint of your decision to withdraw.

Difficulty in Gaining Access to or Locating Injured
Participants: Accordingly, in spite of the many layers of safety precautions instituted by Run Management (emergency services and medical personnel at many checkpoints), there is absolutely no assurance that aid or rescue assistance will arrive in time to give you effective assistance should you become sick, incapacitated or injured. Although medical and other personnel will assist you when possible, remember that you are ultimately responsible for your own well being on the road. Only you will know how your body and mind feel at any given time. Monitor yourself during the entire Run, and prepare yourself to drop out at the nearest checkpoint if you find it just isn’t your day.
