  • Drink fluids. We've provided water stations along the course. Please use them. In case you need help, there are volunteers along the route.

  • Slow runners beyond the cut off times need to exercise extra caution. They can avail the sweep vehicle which is following the slow runners to reach the finish point. The organizers of RBR 2019 will not be responsible for safety, if the slow runners do not adhere the guidelines and precautions.
