What to do if an accident on the course
There are marshals around the course, together with medical first aid at CP and finish area. If you see someone who is in obvious need of help please stay with them and ask the next person who passes you to request for help to the next marshal on course and let them know the competitor number/name if possible and what kind of injury it is. (I.e. broken ankle, twisted knee, injured arm, life threatening, etc). The person you ask to get help should continue along the course to the first available marshal and tell them the location of the injured person. The marshal they contact will phone, radio or SMS the emergency headquarters who will dispatch someone to come out. Depending on the seriousness and location of where on the course this could be someone walking/running, car even helicopter depending on seriousness. If at finish line and injured they may call an ambulance or even a taxi and tell you to go to the Hospital to be treated.

PASSING ON THE COURSE – THE CORRECT WAY 賽道上超前的正確方法
Please be considerate and turn your music down so you can hear others approaching. See rules & regulations tab on this page. If you must pass someone please yell, “passing on your left” or “passing on your right”. If someone is passing you please be considerate and let them overtake you. No pushing and shoving please.
How much water / sport drink to start with??? RECOMMEND SPORT DRINK AS SODIUM INSIDE TO REDUCE CRAMPING.
You must bring your own drinks to start with so recommend:
1 - 1.5 liters of water or sport drink– If you plan on walking the course bring at least 2-3 gels and maybe 1 energy bar.
Hydration 2 days BEFORE RACE DAY
Recommend stay well hydrated 2 days leading up to race - drink lots of water the day before the race. Don’t just drink water but get minerals / electrolytes in your body as well.
Food 2 days BEFORE RACE DAY
Recommend starting carbo-loading at least 48 hours before the race and not just waiting until the night before. AVOID MEAT THE NIGHT BEFORE as takes more than 24 hours to fully digest and will make you feel sluggish. Try to have a good breakfast (banana oatmeal, rice, etc) at least 2-3 hours before the start of the race in order for good digestion.
Garbage on the course
ANYBODY FOUND THROWING EMPTY GEL WRAPPERS, GARBAGE OR EMPTY BOTTLES ON THE COURSE WILL BE DISQUALIFIED AND FINED. Please help us report anyone you see blatantly throwing garbage.
Sunscreen and Clothing
Recommend using sunscreen on back of neck, shoulders, face and arms as in any kind of weather you can get burnt.
Shirts - Recommend wearing lightweight singlet or the official quick dry material singlet given out at registration if you have paid and registered before the race. Quick dry material will dry fast when wet.
Shorts - Normal running shorts are fine. See running short specials at Action X Store www.actionxstore.com (Sheung Wan, Discovery Bay) Go recce the course and find out which is best for you.
