Although today is not an extremely hot day, runners are still at risk for developing heat related illnesses. Athletes and people who exercise in warmer weather are more likely to become dehydrated and are more likely to get heat sickness.
Signs of Heat Exhaustion can include:
- Heavy Sweating
- Cold, pale, clammy skin
- Fast, weak pulse
- Nausea or vomiting
Watch for the signs and seek medical care immediately if you or someone you know has the symptoms of heat-related illness. Warning signs and symptoms of Heat Stroke vary but may include:
- High body temperature (above 103)
- Hot, red, dry or moist skin
- Raid and strong pulse
- Possible unconsciousness
Stay cool, stay hydrated and stay informed!
Good Luck to All Cleveland Marathon Runners Tomorrow!

The Cleveland Division of Police has a security plan in place for tomorrow’s marathon, as we do for all large scale events in the City of Cleveland. The Division will have officers along the route as will many of our law enforcement partners. Policing is a partnership and the public is reminded that if you see something suspicious, please say something. You can download the free app iWatchNEohio on your smartphone as a resource for reporting suspicious activity. Remember, there is no substitute for 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency.
Enjoy the event and stay safe!
