Prior to Leaving Home for the Event

- You can contribute to disposing the single-use plastic that is already in our lives by bringing them to the event location for it to be properly recycled. Collection points established by our partners will be there at the event location. You are requested to please have the plastic cleaned before you bring those.
On Run Day
- Participants must be in good health and be physically prepared to run or walk to complete the course.
- All participants should report to the starting point by latest 7:45 am.

Special colour coded bags provided by Parley can be collected from the event grounds prior to starting the run/walk. You can carry the plastics to the colour coded collection stations placed at the beginning and end of each zone. Members from the Endorsing NGOs will be there throughout the route to provide guidance if necessary. Please return the unused and empty bags to the collection station prior to leaving the event grounds. All plastics collected at the event will be handed over to Parley for recycling. #IAmResponsible
