In brief: Too much water

Hyponatremia is a disorder of water balance.
In the summer as you describe it would because most likely by in excess of water ingestion, or dehydration overall. Excess water consumption can actually be dangerous, and there have been several deaths in marathon runners from drinking too much water.
