The race is designed to encourage kids to participate in a running event and take up the sport while they are young. Kids are encouraged to come out, have fun, and experience the festivities and be part of this momentous occasion. It is non-competitive, hence participants of this category will not be issued with timing chips.

It is compulsory for a parent/guardian to accompany any child 6 years and below for safety purposes. Only one parent/guardian issued with an identification tag** will be allowed to accompany any child 6 years & below.

Strollers are not allowed for the 0-3 years-old category, parents are encouraged to carry their children if needed.
