Summary of general guidelines + Hazards and risks:
"It is better to follow the dictates of your body — not your ambitions!"
- 1. Every entrant should understand that participating in Ramanagara Marathon is at the participant’s own risk. Ramanagara Marathon is also among one of the physically challenging running events in Karnataka and running it presents numerous medical risks, few of which can be extremely serious or on rare occasions fatal.
- 2. Prior to the run, each runner is strongly encouraged to consult with his or her own doctor about any physical or medical potential limitations. Adequate physical and mental conditioning prior to the rune is mandatory. If you have not been able to prepare properly, it is best to not attempt the run.
- 3. Please keep in mind that inspite of having experienced medical personnel at various points along the course, the difficult accessibility of some of the routes may make it impossible for any of our medical assistance to reach the runner immediately. At selected aid stations, at the start of the run and at the finish line, the medical staff will focus on how the runner feels and looks but ultimately runners must understand their own limitations.
- 4. It is important for each entrant to recognise the potential physical and mental stresses, which may evolve from participation in this event. Runners may be subject to extremes of heat and cold, hypothermia, hyperthermia, dehydration, hypoglycemia, hyponatremia, disorientation and mental and physical exhaustion.

Please also understand that rescue, medical decisions and actions may have to be taken on your behalf under extreme time constraints and adverse circumstances and that event management will never be responsible for any debts incurred. We will make the best efforts to give assistance at all time but ultimately and primarily you are in charge. Be careful, be responsible, and do not exceed your own abilities and limitations. In the event that a runner requires emergency evacuation, the runner assumes all financial obligations connected with this service.
What to do in an emergency or coming across and injured runner?
- 1. In an emergency the participant shall give a series of short blasts on their whistle. Any team hearing a distress signal must abandon their course and help in any way needed.
