It's Your Race: Choose Your Distance
With the distance set by how many 7km laps you run, the medal you earn will be based on your own determination.
Catering to different levels of abilities, the Trail in Twilight Stars aims to achieve the following:
- The right race distance for participants who want to test his or her endurance for longer distances under a safe environment.
- A good opportunity for participants to experience running a dusk to dawn race, where a rest area will be catered to allow participants to rest and continue when they are ready.
- By giving a 12 hour limit, participants can actually test their endurance level and stop when they are at their physical and mental limit.
- To introduce the concept of Bring Your Own Bottle (BYOB) to promote a healthy green environment.
To promote a 'Green' environment, the Trail in Twilight Stars will be adopting a BYOB practice, where participants are recommended to bring their own bottle/cup which can be re-used for drinks at the Main Support Station.
This will reduce cup usage & reduce waste, and space will be allocated for these BYOB bottles/cups where you may access it whenever you return to the Main Support Station.
