Sowers Challenging Virtual Run (V-Run)

<<Sowers Challenging Virtual Run (V-Run)>>

 

Safety and health of participants and volunteers are always our top concern. After considering the current pandemic situation and the unlikely easing of anti-gathering measures before 31st October, we have decided to make the Sowers Challenging 12 Hours 2021 a virtual event.

Participants who have signed up for the 12km, 26km or 42km virtual races are required to run the respective race routes in one go and selfie at the designated photo spots. All participants will receive runners pack with gifts. Those who are able to finish the relative race courses in one go and fulfill the selfie requirements will be entitled to finisher medals and certificates.

For safety sake, and in accordance with AFCD, participants must whatsapp the organizer their RACE BIB to 91064082 to notify their START and whatsapp again to notify their FINISH immediately.

Participants must conduct the running activity during the day and should walk with 2-4 participants during the activity for safety.

Participants are requested to send the 3-character location codes after their selfies while on course to whatsapp 9106 4082, so that assistance can be rendered if needed

Mandatory gear : Participants must carry a fully charged mobile phone, BIB, race routes GPX loaded in their mobile phones/sports watches. Sufficient water and snacks (Not less than 3 litres for 42km, 2 litres for 26km, 1 litre for 12km)

For those 42km participants who expect their finish times could be 9 hours or more , they should carry headlamps/torches, spare batteries(mobile phone with GPS consumes battery fast) and note the sunset time.

* Gift pack and souvenir is first come first serve
