Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a competitive race?

This is not a competitive race. There will be no bib, no timing chip and no reward for the fastest runner.

Instead of a bib, an identification wrist tag will be given to each runner. This will be removed at the finish line to be exchanged for the Finisher Medal.

How do I register and when is the deadline?

Register yourself individually via the SOFEA Run App or via Google Form + Payment.

Please indicate your choice : Physical Run or Virtual Run

Virtual Run has to be registered via the SOFEA Run app.

The final deadline for both is now Friday 20th December 2019.

What is a virtual runner, what distance must be covered?

Virtual runners have to cover a minimum of 5km cumulatively at their own time, place and pace between 21st Dec 2019 to 18th Jan 2020. Your mileage will be digitally tracked when you walk/run using the SOFEA Run App.

Yes, you will need to be best-friends with your smart phone for this!

Alternatively, you can also upload a screen shot of your sport watch running summary as evidence in the app to capture and validate your mileage. This can be done each time you finish your activity.

Prizes for virtual runners

There will be 2 prizes for virtual runners:

  • Highest mileage logged in (individual)
  • Highest mileage by batch (open to TKC alumni only)

Winners will be announced on the race day.

Will virtual runners receive a t-shirt and medal too?

Of course! We will post it to your address. Note that you would have already paid for the postage that has been automatically calculated when you register. You will receive your package a few weeks after the event.

Can I run both as a physical runner, and a virtual runner?

Yes, you may do so through the SOFEA Run App. You will have to pay for each category separately though… but why not? It’ll be for charity and you will have double the fun!

Just log out from the SOFEA Run app after your first registration. Log in again with the same particulars EXCEPT that you need to use a different email address for the second registration. SOFEA Run App accepts repeated registration of the same name and IC number, but the system does not allow second registration on the same email.

Alternatively, if you don’t have a second email address, you may register your physical run using the Google link. A virtual run can only be registered via the app.

Can my family join the event/race?

Yes, of course! Kids below 5 years of age may join for free. For insurance coverage, please register them using this link: http://bit.ly/twrc3-kids

However, they would not be eligible for the race kit/goody bag nor the finisher medal and event tee.

Kids 12 years old and below need to be accompanied by their guardian / parent / chaperone.

Please also note that strollers and wheelchairs are allowed throughout the race route EXCEPT on the arena’s 400m running track (synthetic rubber surface).

How do I register my group for the costume run & games?

Register yourself individually first via the SOFEA Run App or as a group/team via Google Form (https://bit.ly/twrc3_run) + payment

Group Costume contest requires at least five (5) registered participants.

Frisbee game requires 7 members per team. At the moment this is only open to TKCOGA as the competition will be according to House. Please contact Fern (SPM 94) for further inquiries (012-2879876).

After you choose your group leader, please get in touch with Afiqah at (+6011-2820-5384) or twrc3.0@gmail.com and register your group name, activity and listed members (please ensure all are registered in the system).

There is no additional cost for entering any of the listed games above.

Please register your group by 29th December 2019.

What do I need to bring on Race Pack Collection Day?

During the race pack collection on Friday 17th & Saturday 18th January 2020, please bring along a digital copy(ies) of the confirmation email & NRIC. Please be reminded the ‘GO-GREEN’ theme and refrain from using printouts.

To receive the free collapsible silicone cup, do bring a minimum of 3x 500ml and 2x 1.5L empty plastic bottles with you to be recycled. Any kind of empty plastic bottle would do.

Can I collect the race pack on behalf of others?

Yes of course! We encourage this to minimize the carbon footprint.

No authorization letter is needed, just be ready with a screenshot of your friend’s confirmation email. We may require the collector to leave their phone number behind.

Costume requirement:

In line with the ‘GO-GREEN’ theme, the costumes are preferably made using materials which are sourced sustainably and recyclable in nature.

However, we expect the costume to be fairly decent. No doubt Malaysia is hot and humid, but no bare torsos please… unless you have 6-packs to show off.  And a bikini in a running event maybe a bit too far-fetched.

For GROUP COSTUME competition ONLY: Please prepare a short narrative, maximum 50 words to describe your theme, for the MC to announce during the march past.

Must I wear the event tee?

If you are not running in your own costume, donning our event t-shirt with the lovely leaf prints is highly encouraged!

Will there be a bag drop facility?

Sorry, this is not provided. Therefore please bring only your necessary items on that day.

Will there be a Surau and toilet facilities at the stadium?

Yes. The Surau is located at top floor of the UM Arena, turn left as you go up the stairs. 

It is a relatively small surau. Since Subuh Prayer is at 6.02 AM, well before the flag-off time, we recommend runners to solat prior to arrive at arena.

Will I be receiving any reminder email?

Yes, the organizer will blast an email to all participants with all relevant info closer to the event date. Additionally, we are also using other mediums of communication such as social media (Facebook) and through batch reps WhatsApp messaging to circulate the information.

Parking details will also be shared closer to the date.

I am unfit / unwell / pregnant / injured to run the 5km course. What options do I have?

You can opt to run or walk within the arena track itself. You will still qualify for the finisher medal.

Will there be water stations (WS) along the route?

Yes, there will be two (2) water stations along the route. Please BYOC (Bring Your Own Cup ), as there will be no paper cups provided. GO-GREEN! Therefore, please bring along the collapsible silicone cups that will be given for free in exchange for recyclable items brought during the race pack collection.

Refer to “What do I need to bring on Race Pack Collection Day?”
