Even not being a 42K, we remind you the importance of a good warmup; Skipping or skimping on your prerun routine, you risk poor performance and injury. A proper warmup increases heart rate, breathing rate, and blood flow to the muscles, allowing your body to work more efficiently, and reducing injury risk by loosening you up. With all the things you need to accomplish before your race starts, it’s easy to shortchange your warmup. That’s why we recommend you arriving at least one hour before the start. Especially if you don’t know exactly the place, and especially in Dubai, when it’s very easy to get lost.
