Hydration points are located an every transition point. Transition points can be 10km or 20km apart. Runners are advised to bring their own drinking water bags for their hydration needs.

Yes, we are able to accommodate up to 20 support runners in each segment of the relay.




Will I be able to select on my preferred running slot? I can only run on specific dates or time.

Do inform the lead cyclist is you are not feeling well, you will be advised accordingly. Medical coverage is available for all runners.




Should the timing of my run be affected by bad weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances, and I am unable to run at the delayed timing, would there be backup runners to take my place?


I am unable to run at the delayed timing, would there be backup runners to take my place?
A: Scheduling of the runners is a complicated task and we hope that all runners are able to commit to their allocated slot for the run. Our committee would also like to urge all runners to spare out ample time around their run to accommodate for any last minute changes to the time of their run.




If I like to withdraw last minute from the race due to unforeseen circumstances, what do I do? Will there be backup runners for my slot or do I need to find backup?


We hope that all runners will commit to the run and our mission. Should there be a need to withdraw from the run, do inform your Relay Majulah liaison as soon as possible, or at least 1 day in advance. We would need to make arrangements for a replacement. We do have backup runners in view of such situations.




What if I am unable to complete my segment as scheduled?


In the event a delay occurs, we may request for the next runner to start off on his/ her segment of the run to avoid affecting the completion of the run at the required time. The next runner will receive instructions from our 24/7 call centre when that is being required.
