Refreshment Stations for 21km

  • Half Marathon
  • Medical

Ten well-stocked refreshment stations are positioned along the route.

  • Drinking water is provided throughout the race in 100ml plastic sachets, with Coca-Cola in 175ml Coke cups.
  • Runners should drink approximately 100ml of fluid (one sachet) every 15 minutes. It may thus not be necessary to drink at every station, as the dangers of over hydration can be as severe as that of dehydration. Runners should modify their fluid intake to suit weather conditions on the day and should not experiment with new drinks on race day.
  • Toilet facilities will be provided at every refreshment station and where possible will be located just past the station. Runners are requested to use the toilets provided and not private gardens or public areas.
