The Runs :
Our runs start on time so be punctual.
Registration packs need to be collected at the expo - no bib no race no cert no medal.
The Health Care medical team, water, toilets, sports drinks and time check will be there at various points, traffic Police – we want you safe and injury free with treatment close at hand if required. (see the map). Please call for an ambulance or aid if you ever do feel dizzy or unsteady.
Running is a fun activity but running in a race, like engagement in any activity, also comes with attendant risks, which you should be aware of, and only then enter. If you are running the marathon especially, prepare well, for running in the heat and humidity and running with some reflective strips on your T shirt and shoes and cap and arms and a light. We want you safe. This run is in very humid weather and should also require some ingestion of salty items - sports drinks or other solids or liquids to prevent cramping and dehydration. Run with a water bottle and some salt to replenish lost salts apart from fluids.
We want you to have fun and stay safe, and do your bit towards that.
For those of you training for your first half marathon, Congratulations!
