From morning until noon, a queue of runners and visitors wanted to check their blood sugar and cholesterol at the GWS Medika booth. The medical team was busy checking blood pressure and taking blood samples. Several officers served registration and carried out promotions in front of the booth.

The Jakarta International Marathon (JAKIM) 2024 ended successfully. This event takes flag off in the Monas area at 04.00 and ends at the Gelora Bung Karno Main Stadium.

GWS Medika, a clinic in Jakarta, once again demonstrated its commitment to supporting people's healthy lifestyles by participating in the 2024 Jakarta International Marathon (JAKIM) on Sunday (23/6).

This event was held in collaboration with the DKI Jakarta Provincial Government and PT Bank Tabungan Negara (BTN) to celebrate Jakarta's 497th anniversary.

More than 15,000 runners from various countries participated in this prestigious event. GWS Medika provides blood sugar, uric acid, cholesterol-checking services, and recovery services for runners who experience muscle cramps, knee pain, or other injuries.

Apart from that, GWS Medika also provides ambulance supported by a medical team on standby to ensure that patients are safe and well after the competition.

"We are happy to be able to participate in JAKIM and help runners achieve their goals," said dr. Agnes Susanto, Head, Clinical Operations and Training GWS Medika. "Our medical team is always on standby to provide the best health services in preparing for health during and at the end of the race."

One of the runners, Nana, felt very helped by the recovery services provided by GWS Medika. "I pulled a muscle, and my knee hurt after running. After therapy at GWS Medika, the pain subsided," said Nana. "The therapists were professional and friendly. They also gave useful tips for avoiding future injuries."

When met after providing therapy, Mohammad Raffli explained, "Most runners experience muscle cramps, knee pain, and stiffness due to a lack of warm-up before running." But some need special treatment because they have quite serious injuries."

Meanwhile, the GWS Medika medical team, with several sports medicine and therapy specialist doctors, prepared at the finish line area inside the Gelora Bung Karno Main Stadium.

They were busy assisting around 50 runners who were injured. "Most runners experience vomiting, muscle cramps, and stomach cramps leading to stiffness, dehydration, and even heat stroke," explained dr. Almer Deta Tarandha from GWS Medika. Some even had to be referred to a referral hospital for further treatment.
