Compulsory ECG Test
The MDS requires every athlete to undergo an ECG test with a doctor to ensure runners are physically able to participate in this tough race as the combination of heat, lack of nutrients, dehydration and heavy backpack. I had this done today with Dr Sohail at Dr. Nicholas ASP clinic and the doctor was very happy with my results. Pulse at 74. blood pressure at 138/80 and ECG was normal for an athlete. I will need to submit this documentation on admin day before the race and the results will then be reviewed by a race doctor who`ll make the final decision whether you may run or not! Good thing they did not make us take a sanity test as you must be a little bit crazy to attempt something this hectic!
