If you have any medical conditions that could be adversely affected by exercise, or if you are in any doubt about your health, you must get clearance from your doctor before participating.

3.4 JDRF understands that Entrants who have type 1 diabetes are keen to support JDRF and many are fit enough to take part in our Events. However, Entrants who have any doubt about their health or have a medical condition that could be affected by exercise, must obtain their doctor’s approval before participating in any Event.
