    •   Receive the finisher certificate.
    Do wear yours!

    Oh yeah! We do have one. Here’s how it works
    We have three main prize categories – Open, Senior and Veteran.
    3 winners for both male and female – Winner, 1strunner-up and 2nd runner-up

    Veteran is a category within the Open category. To be part of this sub category, a runner has to be 60 years or above in age on the day of the race.

    This category has 3 winners (gender neutral) – Winner, 1st runner-up and 2nd runner-up. 

  • Is it necessary to take part in the event wearing the official event t-shirt?

    No. But it would be wonderful if you could run in it. But hey, if you are someone who won’t try anything new on race-day, we strongly recommend that you stick to your plan.
