Health Tip: Competing in Triathalon Races
Suggestions to help you stay well

(HealthDay News) -- Triathalon races often take place in areas that may pose a danger of illness from contaminated water.

To help you avoid getting sick, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests:

  • Avoid swallowing water in which you're swimming, even if it doesn't appear muddy.
  • As soon as you finish competing and before eating or drinking, wash your hands and face with soap and water.
  • If you have diarrhea or are vomiting on the day of the race, don't compete. This will help protect the health of other participants.
