A man overheats when the body's heat is unable to drain. A body at rest is about 37.2 degrees warm. By exertion muscles produce heat and the body will sweat to dissipate this heat. If that is not enough to go than the blood vessels in the skin are open. The runner will turn red. Normally, this should be sufficient to dissipate the heat and to restore the balance. There is, if all goes well, a balance with a higher body temperature.


Overheating can occur due to wear warm clothing so that the heat can be dissipated sufficiently. Other factors also play a role in case of overheating, such as ambient temperature, the power of the sun and high humidity.

Remains important to stop in time if it does not feel good and not to embark on a marathon in doubt.
