1. When do I get my registration pack?

On Sunday, 22 March 2020, one representative from each team, and each individual Magic Mile Challenge runner is required to pick up the race pack at the registration counter. The registration counter will be opened from 9:00 am onwards and the Ramp Run will start at 10:00 am sharp (Magic Mile Challenge). Runners can collect their running bibs from the registration counter on the day and to avoid delays and crowding, you are advised to arrive early. 

Registration pack may also be mailed or picked up at Goodman office during 18 - 20 March 2020. Arrangements will be made according to the designated delivery method selected in registration form.

3. How to use my BIB?

Secure the bib on your chest and make sure it is clearly visible at all times during the race to enable officials to identify your numbers. Do no fold or remove the timing chip. Race participants must step on the timing mats located at the Start and Finish Line, otherwise no results will be provided. 

The organiser will NOT re-issue the number badges as they are unique and non-replaceable. Any runner who does not wear their number badge on the day of the event can still participate at the charity run but will not be qualify to win any awards.

 

4. What is the dress code?

The only thing we do ask is that you wear a pair of suitable running shoes for comfort and safety.

 

5. Will there be storage on site?

Runners may drop off their bags with the baggage tags provided with the bibs and deposit them at the Baggage Deposit Area. We recommend participants to bring along a waterproof bag. We will only process baggage with an official baggage tag. After the race, runners can re-claim their bags at the Baggage Deposit Area. All runners are required to collect their belongings before the counter closes at 1:00 pm. 

The Organizer (Goodman Asia Limited) will not be liable for any loss or damage to any belongings brought to the Magic Mile.
