In brief: Heat stroke
Best solution might be to run in a cooler climate or run indoors on a treadmill.
Pushing yourself in this environment may put you at risk for heat stroke, a dangerous emergency.

In brief: Fluids
The short answer is to take plenty of fluids with you.
Heat exhaustion happens when you deplete your fluid and electrolytes, so bringing a fluid pack helps a lot. You should also wear light colored clothing. Over time, your body does adapt as well.
