You'll be issued 1 Bib with 4 safety pins, which is to be placed visibly on the front at all times during the event.  This will help us identify you as a participant.  You must show this Bib Number Tag whenever you wish to get the supplies provided at the support stations.  Failure to show the Bib Number Tag will not allow you to obtain the aid/supplies you require.

You'll also received your pre-ordered Event Short Sleeved T-Shirt.  Or you can collect it after you complete your run.
 
Prepare your mind, body and soul for the commencement of the event.

To facilitate identification of your Special-Needs Bag, please write your bib number on a piece of tape & attach it to your bag.  We recommended you use a unique bag which will make it easier for identification/retrieval.

Your self-provided Special Needs Bag should be durable, able to withstand rough handling.  We will not be held responsible for any loss of/damaged/soiled items contained in the bag.  Please do not place any valuables in the bag.
 
Please retrieve your bag by 12pm on Sunday.  After 12pm, any unclaimed bags will be disposed.
