MEDICAL TIPS FOR A SAFE & SUCCESSFUL GREAT ALOHA RUN
by Great Aloha Run Medical Director, Benjamin Chun, MD, Kaiser Permanente
- Completely fill out the back of your race number to include your emergency medical information.
- Stage yourself at the start line in accordance with your estimated finish time. Avoid injury to yourself and fellow runners by starting with runners of similar speed.
- Avoid dehydration and heat-related illnesses by drinking plenty of fluid before the race, at each aid station, and after the race.
- Kaiser Permanente will be managing the medical care. A fully-staffed medical tent will operate at each of the four aid stations. Equipped ambulances, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, police officers, and spotters will be positioned along the racecourse to offer assistance. Kaiser Permanente also has a large, fully-equipped medical station at the Aloha Stadium.
- Look out for fellow runners. Help when you can or direct any runner in need to the medical personnel throughout the race course. To assist an unresponsive or seriously ill runner you may also call 911 from the nearest available telephone.
