Additionally, participants will gain insight for planning and conducting ultramarathon races, as well as potential effects of ultrarunning on long term health based on existing evidence and expert opinion from leaders in this field. Attendees will actively participate in didactics, panel discussion and hands-on training to evaluate and treat many common medical concerns that occur during ultramarathons. They will gain an understanding of the overall preparation and planning needed to safely produce an ultramarathon that often combines some of the challenges of wilderness and remote medicine with the unique concerns of endurance event medicine.
