Abstract: On-site medical care should be considered essential for mass participation athletic events. Events such as road races, marathons, and triathlons may attract thousands of participants and spectators, which may overwhelm regional health care capabilities. One successful model of a mass participation event medical care system involves direction by a medical director or coordinator who is a physician and is ideally trained in emergency and/or sports medicine.
