DON’T BE A DOPE
A shocking proportion of amateur athletes are going to extremes to beat the competition, a recent BBC investigation has found. Its survey revealed that over one third – 35% – admitted that they knew someone who had doped – i.e. used performance-enhancing drugs – while half agreed that the use of such substances was rife in competitive sport. We wholeheartedly encourage training hard and enjoying the thrill of competing to reach the finish line first, but doping is proven as a dangerous and unethical practise. Don’t do it.
Ditch the drugs for the natural high of the trails
