Answer

March hemoglobinuria is a rare hemolytic disorder usually observed in young males. Individuals develop hemoglobinuria after marching or running on hard surfaces. Curtailing the precipitating exercise (ie, running on grass rather than concrete) and using shoes with reinforced soles are helpful in preventing this form of hemoglobinuria.
