Muscle relaxants

Hi,
Please explain how do muscle relaxants work and do they in any way impede ones ability to run by that I mean should one take them during a marathon would it not relax the muscle to the extent that your muscles then become too weak to be able to function!! And could you recommend a good one,
Thank you

Hi B

No, they relieve muscular spasm, but wont leave you flopping on the ground like the character called "Boneless Chicken" in the animated series "Cow and Chicken".

Thank you so much for your response.
Please can you recommend an effective one. During an ultra marathon both my quads go into total spasm to a point they cannot move, will this muscle relaxant help relieve this.
Thanks
