Abstract

With increased participation in running and walking marathons, more PAs and NPs are needed to help provide marathon medical coverage. In addition to preventing medical emergencies through effective pre-race planning and other strategies, these clinicians address serious conditions, including exercise-associated collapse, exertional heat stroke, dehydration, and hyponatremia.
