Pre-event Health Information

The Australian Medical Association (WA) recommends the distribution of the the following health advice to registered participants in amateur  fun runs, triathlons and distance swims. There are particular medical concerns and potentially fatal health impacts resulting from the exertion required for these sporting events. Where an event requires high physical exertion, and attracts novice exercisers, there must be comprehensive health information provided as a matter of course to anyone registering.
