The weather in November is hot and humid with temperatures reaching highs of around 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit). Light-colored clothing, short-sleeve technical shirts are a good choice as sweat is not absorbed (like cotton), sun block is a must (use SPF30 or above), a running hat with visor is also advisable as it can help keep the sun out of your eyes
You will receive your bib number in the goodie bag we will be handing out the day before race day.
All finishers receive a medal. A small, symbolic prize is given to the winner of both distances for men and women. Please note that there is no prize money.
