This section will be updated to address frequently asked questions about the event.
Qn>> Is there an age limit to participate in walkathon (kids)? Can toddler participate in 1K walkathon?
Ans>> We prefer kids 5 and up to do 1K walkathon, for safety reasons. If the kid is younger, he/she and parent can join after the crowd has moved on to avoid kid from getting hurt. It is the parent's responsibility to ensure safety of kids at al times at the event. We would need waiver on behalf of all participants below 18 and parent participating along with them.
Qn>> Is stroller allowed for a parent to carry infant or particular below age?
Ans>>Strollers are not allowed
Qn>> Is 5K run& 1 k run walkathon is different/ if we register we need to complete both ?
Ans>> They are different routes. You can do a single registration and participate in any. 5K Fun Run and 5K Walkathon are essentially the same. Most people prefer to do fun run instead of walking. Those who need more time can join as walkathon participants. 1K has a shorter path.
Qn>> Is 5K & 1 k separate registration?
Ans>> No, you can do a single registration and participate in 5K or 1K or both.
Qn>> Should parent & kids should fill up separate forms?
Ans>> Yes, each participant should sign a separate registration form. For participants under 18, parents fill in second half of page # 2 (along with their own participation form).
Qn>> Should we get our own water bottles? Or provided in the premises?
Ans>> No need to bring own water bottles. We will have plenty of water bottles at registration desk and at water stations (every 1K on the path). We will also provide water and light refreshments to all participants at the finishing point.
Qn>> Is there any baggage area to keep personal belongings?
