The summer is heating up not just with the sun but with a running challenge that will challenge not just your body but also your will power. One such run that you cannot miss is the one organised by JRC – THOR – The Hero of Running. It is one of a kind running event where every mile will be a challenge.
Challenge of Running in Summer
A summer run in Jaipur will definitely test your mettle as a runner as you need to battle dry heat. Hot weather raises the body temperature and hydration is extremely important. Summer in India isn’t a popular season for running as it presents formidable challenges to the runners.
So the training period is extremely important, where you learn to adapt and be realistic of your running skills. The core temperature rises faster and you need to adjust accordingly. It is also important to dedicate time to recovery during the training periods. Sleep will also play a crucial role during summer training. Fatigue can set in faster than usual in the summer months so it is extremely important to be a responsible runner.
The serious runners can choose timed runs of 21k and 10k. The newbie runners can choose the 4k timed run option to check how well you are doing as novice runner. There is also a special feature for runners who cannot travel to Jaipur – you can become a virtual participant – where you can run the half marathon in your own city.
