It is a pack containing necessary items for your race. This includes your race bib, the event guide, a running singlet and other sponsored items.
Details are to be confirmed.
Yes, there is a baggage check-in area* at the start line where runners can deposit their belongings.
*Counters will only accept items secured in bag(s) tagged with a baggage tag (proliferated to a section of every runner tag).
Whilst maximum care and security will be enforced, the organiser will not be responsible for any loss or damaged items, or delay in retrieving the bags. Participants are advised to arrive 2 hours before their start time as delays are expected.
Yes, course markers will be available every kilometre along the race routes.
All winners will be presented with their respective awards following their races on race day.
Race timings will be recorded by the B-Tag, an electronic race timing system with accuracy up to hundredth of a second, located behind your race bib.
10km and 21.1km participants will be timed using the B-Tag electronic race timing system.
Timing will not be recorded for the 5km participants.
Please ensure the following in order to receive an accurate time.
- Race bib is clearly visible on the front of the torso.
- Race bib is unaltered and unmodified. (Do not fold or wrinkle)
- Race bib is pinned in all four corners.
- Race bib is not covered. (jackets, runner belts, water bottles, etc.)
Participants will be granted access to their personal race results (Gun Time and Chip Time), as captured by the timing system on the race website 48 hours after the last cut-off time.
"Gun Time" (still officially accepted by the IAAF as the valid mode of measuring running time) includes whatever distance you had covered before you actually reached the start line. Official results are based on the Gun Time, i.e. prize rankings are according to the Gun time.
The Chronotrack electronic race timing system eliminates that major issue of inaccurate timing and gives you your "Net Time".
First aiders will be deployed along the route. Participants who are in need of immediate attention can also alert the route marshals.
There will also be sweeper vehicles to pick up runners who are injured or unable to complete the race and take them to the End point.
The cut-off timings are as follows:
- 21.1km - 4.5 hours after the flag off time
- 10km - 2.5 hours after the flag off time
- 5km - 1.5 hours after the flag off time
