- Am I ready for the race day?
It’s perfectly normal to experience a wide range of emotions a few days before the race day.
As we enter the last week before the run, let us taper down and build our reserves for the race day.
Let us use this week to cross train, organize, hydrate, relax and taper. Prepare a checklist for your race day preparations, organize yourself to reach the venue, check if you can car pool and plan to arrive at the venue at least 30 minutes before the race time.
It may also be a good idea to head for a sports massage 3 to 5 days before the race day.

- How are the aid stations planned?
We have planned our aid stations every 2 kms. They will serve water, Gatorade, Salt, Sugar, Fruits and Biscuits. To support our green cause, the aid stations will use re-usable water cups which will be hygienically maintained.
