It could be food or hydration related, but it could also be heart/circulation related. A doctor visit is definitely in order, unless it can obviously be pin-pointed to a lack of water or food.

When during your run are you getting dizzy? The beginning? Middle? End? How long was your run? How often do you feel dizzy during a run? Multiple times a week, or just maybe once a month or so?

In the words of the disclatimer on every piece of cardio equipment at the gym. Stop exercising and see a doctor if you feel faint or dizzy. Food, water an underlying health condition etc. I can see the heat doing bad things to you or not enough fuel, but better safe than sorry.

I have to agree with Swan47 - they need to go get seen by a MD. There are so many underlying issues that could be causing or it could be as easy as food, water, electrolytes, etc. Better safe than sorry!

So many reasons...best to check out with a doctor if it keeps up. Hydration, not proper fueling, heat, running to fast but something else can be going on.

My guess would be food related. That happened to me once before and I was way overdue on eating lunch!

Could also be because the heart is just pumping so darned fast that it causes dizziness. Proper solution for that would be to slow down like maybe even walk for some minutes. If really really dizzy, head between the knees.

my friend has gotten dizzy a few times on their run. any idea why? I think its because they are not eating nearly enough for marathon training?
