Marathon risk?

Trail Running (UK) - - Warm- Up -

Ex­perts writ­ing in the Amer­i­can Jour­nal of Kid­ney Diseases have cast doubt on the safety of marathon run­ning. Ac­cord­ing to their re­search, 82% of par­tic­i­pants suf­fer Stage 1 Acute Kid­ney In­jury soon after a race, with symp­toms in­clud­ing the kid­neys fail­ing to fil­ter waste from the blood. This could be due to a sus­tained rise in core body tem­per­a­ture, de­hy­dra­tion, or de­creased blood flow to the kid­neys.
