WE WILL UPDATE THE ROUTE MAP WITH THE ADDITIONAL 10.55KM FLAT DISTANCE FOR THE FULL MARATHON AS HTE ADDITIONAL DISTANCE RUN.
Get as many of your family and friends to join at this iconic location so that they can cheer you on at several points and make it your fastest race as you see their placards, they photograph you and cheer loudly for you, as well as the other runners. Experience the track where cars set speed records, and where you will perhaps set yours.The medical team, water, toilets, sports drinks and timing check will be there - we want you safe and injury free with treatment close at hand if required.
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.
Anyone registering for this 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.
It is important to listen to your body and heart and not push yourself beyond a limit. Walk when tired.
This run is in cool dry climate and requires regular hydration to ensure you do NOT get dehydrated or start cramping. Some ingestion of salty items – sports drinks or other solids or liquids is also advisable.
We want you to have fun and stay safe, and do your bit towards that.
