Anyone registering for a our race should make sure that he/she is medically fit and does not have any precondition - however minor it may seem to them, that would indicate that they should not run eg being on some medication, onset of a cold or flu, not yet recovered from a flu or an injury etc.

If you are running a full marathon or more- prepare well, for running in the cold, in the dark, in the heat and running with some reflective strips on your T shirt and shoes and cap and arms and a light. We want you safe.
Some runs are in colder weather which should also require some ingestion of salty items - sports drinks or other solids or liquids to prevent cramping.

We want you to have fun and stay safe, and do your bit towards that.
