How is the Twilight Ultra Challenge being conducted?

 
It will be a 5km loop on a footpath, where you are free to do as many loops as you wish. There will be a checkpoint at the U-Turn point located at the 2.5km mark.
 
 
Why do loops?

By creating the 5km loop on the same footpath, we endeavour to provide a memorable experience for all participants by maximising opportunities of being able to encourage & motivate your friends and fellow participants as you pass by each other. Seeing each other on the course will spur you on to bring out the best in you and brighten up the twilight.


 

  • An electronic timing system will be in place, provided by Checkpoint Spot.  
  • There will be 2 timing points, 1 at the Start/End of the 5km loop & the other at the 2.5km U-Turn point.
  • Please collect the timing chip at the event site when you collect your bib number tag.
  • Before the race start, please ensure you attach the timing chip to 1 of your ankles using the timing chip strap.  Please see photo below the timing strap & timing chip.
  • Ensure the timing chip is strapped onto your ankle throughout the race duration.  If the timing chip is not on your ankle, your timing will not be captured.
  • At the end of every lap, you may view the on-site monitor/screen at the main event site to check if your lap timing has been captured.  If your timing was not captured, please inform the timing staff immediately so the necessary action can be taken.
  • Please return the timing chip & strap to the timing crew immediately after you have decided to stop the race.  If the timing chip is not returned, the organiser may seek payment of SGD 50 from the participant for the missing timing chip.
  • NOTE: If you think the strap will cause abrasion around your ankle, please apply some form of lubrication around the ankle or wear socks higher than your ankle before you place the strap & timing chip.

BYOB @ Main Event Site

These bottles can be placed at the Main event site (5km mark) together with your special needs bag/items & at the U-turn point (2.5km mark).  Please self-mark your bottle(s) your name & bib number so it doesn't get mixed up with others. 

You can also deposit a cup/bottle which can be used for hot drinks such as coffee/milo so we can reduce usage of foam cups.
