(HealthDay News) -- Triathalon races often take place in areas that may pose a danger of illness from contaminated water.
To help you avoid getting sick, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests:
Avoid swallowing water in which you're swimming, even if it doesn't appear muddy.
As soon as you finish competing and before eating or drinking, wash your hands and face with soap and water.
If you have diarrhea or are vomiting on the day of the race, don't compete. This will help protect the health of other participants.
