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 a half marathon, prepare well, for running 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. Long runs 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. The runs are organised by runners for runners. Experience the thrill of a lifetime as you cross the finish line. The course is up and down, scenic and green and well supported. The Half Marathon will stay open for 3:30 hours from 6:30am onwards and with Sports Drinks, Water, Health Care and our enthusiastic volunteer support.
