Health Advice

Read through the health advice and guidelines to help ensure a safe run.

BE COVID-19 SAFE


Look after yourself and those around you by following these Covid-19 general guidelines:

  • If you feel unwell (i.e. fever, cough) please stay at home and don’t participate in the race.
  • If someone in your household tests positive for the virus, please stay at home for a period of 14 days.
  • Maintain good personal hygiene by regularly washing your hands using soap and water or alcohol-based (at least 65–70%) hand sanitiser for 20 seconds.
  • If you are over 65 years old, or have compromised health conditions please take greater preventive measures.

Adhere to a 2-metres safe distance at the start and finish venue, and during the run.

Wear a safety mask at all times prior to starting the run and don one again after you finish, once you have caught your breath.

PACE YOURSELF


Adapt your pace to your fitness level, the weather and other running conditions. Especially if you are not a regular runner, it’s a good idea to start off at a pace that is well within your physical comfort zone.

Slow down if you feel overly tired and giddy, or if you develop a headache and feel over-heated.

LISTEN TO YOUR BODY


Stop and seek medical attention if you start to have difficulty breathing, develop chest pain, or re-discover that old injury you have been ignoring.

Do not race if you have had an illness with fever in the week before the race.

BEAT THE HEAT


Choose your start time carefully to avoid the greatest heat and humidity of Singapore’s climate.

Start the race well-hydrated to avoid a heat injury. Drink sufficiently pre-event and avoid caffeinated drinks.

Stay well-hydrated during your run. Use the event hydration belt to carry fluids on your run. Your fluid intake should consist of a combination of water and electrolyte drinks.

TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR HEALTH


Be aware of your physical abilities and whether you are able to compete in this event without a health risk. 

Consult your doctor if you have a heart condition, have a family history of cardiac arrests, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, or any other condition that may keep you from participating.

If you have specific medication for medical conditions or allergies, consider carrying it on you during your run.
