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.
Prepare well, for running in the outdoors and on uneven trail. Train to run uphill or up - stairs. Wear shoes that wont slip on the rock in case it rains.
We want you to have fun and stay safe, and you need to do your bit towards that.
Each runner will get a running T Shirt
