  • Do not block traffic at Kiulu – follow instruction to park efficiently and proceed to Dewan for registration. A map of parking areas is provided below - no parking is allowed along the roads leading into to the start/finish area and at the riverside to avoid blocking the route and access points.

  • If you have a half-way bag or a finisher bag, these can be deposited in the hall. Tags will be provided at the luggage counter.
  • Immediately after registration and bag-drop in the hall – move to the starting area at the river side (400m, follow sign boards). Do not stay in the hall as this will slow down the registration process and/or you may miss the start.

Start

  • The 50k category will start first. Line up behind the starting banner and be ready for start at least 10 minutes before start.
  • 100k category, line up well behind the 50k category, but DO NOT start together with them as you will be taking a separate route.
  • Immediately after the 50k category has started, 100k category moves forward to the start line to be ready for flag-off.
  • 30k category line up after the 50k category has started.
  • On Sunday morning, the 12k category will follow the same procedure to get registered in the hall and deposit finisher bag (if any) between 6 am and 6:45 am, then get lined up behind the start banner by 6:50 the latest.

 

Finish Area Logistics

  • All categories finish at the same location as the start.
  • The 12k competitors will arrive to the finish area along the road through the village
