Q: How many laps do I have to complete?
A: 4 laps around the MacRitchie Reservoir

Q: Will I receive the finisher medal and T-Shirt if I only complete 3 laps?
A: No, it’s called “finisher medal” for a reason. It would be unfair towards those who completed the full distance. You need to complete 4 laps.

Q: What distance is one lap?
A: It depends – as it shows differently on various GPS devices. We believe it’s 10.55km, giving us an exact full-marathon distance of 42.2km in 4 laps.

Q: I haven’t received the confirmation email…
A: Firstly, please make sure that it did not land in your junk email folder. If you still haven’t received confirmation email AFTER 2 DAYS from confirmed PayPal payment, email us to clarify this. Make sure to either attach the PayPal receipt or provide the PayPal payment reference number so that we can trace your payment.

Q: Is there a discount for MR25 members?
A: Not this time.

Q: Is there a minimum age for the participants?
A: The minimum age is 18 years on the date of event – born on or before 28/06/1997.

Q: My pet canary broke his leg and I have to take it to hospital, therefore will be unable to run on the day… Can you refund my registration fee?
A: No.
