hello and welcome to HCM,

A throat becoming dry can have many causes. Let this be a checklist for you:
1. Do you have nose block? If you do then when exert then you tend to breathe more through the mouth which can make the throat very dry and sore.
2. Do you have outside non home cooked or spicy or oily food? even these can dry up the throat
3. Do you have fever or bodypain? If you have a mild infection, then throat dryness will be the first symptom

anyway take plenty of warm water and avoid anything oily or spicy or cold
If you do not improve consult an ENT who may suggest an endoscopy for further treatment

take care and also do not strain when you speak which can also cause dryness
