6. What happens if we cannot complete the route in the specified times?

Every participant must reach the checkpoints before the stipulated cut-off times (please refer to the Participants’ Handbook which will be released closer to the event). 

For those who did not reach the checkpoint before its stipulated cut-off time, they will be disqualified from the event.  In such a case, the Organisers may ask the individual to stop the walk.  Should the individuals wish to continue, they will be doing it at their own risks. 

Please also take note that the checkpoints will not be manned after the cut-off time.

7. Who can participate in LTAW 2019?

The event is open to anyone who feels he or she is up to the challenge. We do require parental consent for participants below 18 years of age on 30th October 2019. The consent form must be downloaded and sent in with the payment cheque.

In addition, an adult must accompany participants below 12 years of age for the entire event.

8. Do I have to be fit to participate in any of the walks?

As per our previous editions of LTAW, LTAW 2019 is not a competitive event and walking is a relatively low impact sport compared to running.  Nevertheless, walking 50 km, 100 km and 150 km continuously is a physical and mental challenge to anyone and does require a certain level of fitness. If you have any doubts about your health and fitness, please consult your doctor or health specialists before signing up.

9. When and where does each category start and end?

The start and end points will be at announced at the later date.  Please check the website for any updates.

10. Is there a baggage storage area at the start of the walk for us to keep our bags?

There will not be any baggage storage area. Participants are strongly advised to go light for ease of walking.  Alternatively, you can rally your friends to form support teams to replenish your supplies along the route.

11. Can I rollerblade or cycle during the walk instead?

LTAW 2019 is strictly a walking event. Participants are required to walk by foot the entire route. To ensure the safety of all the participants, rollerblading, cycling or any other form of personal mobility devices are prohibited.

12. Will I get any ‘goodies’, t-shirts, vouchers, freebies etc, along with my participation?

The registration fee includes a unisex event t-shirt. Finishers of the 150km UltimateWalk and 100 km XtremeWalk, within the completion time, will also receive a Finisher’s Tee. There is strictly no changing of participants’ t-shirt sizes once registered. However, you can exchange with other participants at the pre-event briefing when t-shirts are collected.  As the collection from the registration fees will be donated to the beneficiaries, we are aiming to keep costs as low as possible. We seek your understanding in this matter.

13. Will food & drinks be provided for participants in the long walk?

There will be no food and drinks provided by the Organisers. Participants are encouraged to organise their own logistical support.  Alternatively, you may walk past convenience stores (e.g. 7-11, Cheers), coffee shops, eateries along the route, where you could purchase food and water from.  

As part of our effort to go Green, we encouraged participants to bring along their own bottles and minimise the use of single-use plastic bottles or containers.

14. Can we stop and rest for meals, drinks during the 50 km PowerWalk (Day/Night), 100 km XtremeWalk and 150 UltimateWalk?

Yes, of course! You can stop and rest to refuel at any time as long as you complete your walk before the cut-off times.

However, do inform us, via the number printed on the number bib or the event crew, if you decide to take an extended break, so that we do not send out a search party.  Please be reminded that the stipulated cut-off times at the checkpoints still apply.  Also, do note that the event ends on 1600 hours on 3rd November 2019, so don’t take FOREVER!

15. Can we sleep during the long walks?

We discourage sleep-walking as you will be a hazard to other participants and members of the public.

However, in past editions, we noticed that some of the participants did take naps and some did not.  It’s really up to you! The personal challenge is yours and as a participant, you are free to strategise your route and sleeping plans.

Remember, LTAW 2019 is a non-competitive event. We are here to have fun! Again, please inform us, via the number printed on the number bib or the event crew, if you decide to take an extended break, so that we do not send out a search party.  Again, stipulated cut-off times at the checkpoints still apply.

16. Must I have a support team?

The use of a support team is highly recommended for those taking part in 150 km UltimateWalk, 100 km XtremeWalk and 50 km PowerWalk (Day/Night). You should travel as light as possible. Your support team can meet you at the checkpoints with food, drinks, change of clothes, night gear, massages and moral support.

17. Is the end point opened to the public?

Oh yes, of course! Get your boyfriend(s), girlfriend(s), husband, wife, partner, parents, siblings, relatives, colleagues, neighbours, pets.....(the list goes on!) to witness your triumphant return at the end point!

18. What are the most common types of injuries observed in previous events?

Feet blisters and sore muscles are the most common types of injuries observed in previous events especially for participants in the long walks.

It is important have at least 8 hours of sleep the day before the walk events. Doing warm-up helps to prevent muscle cramps during the walk.

To prevent serious condition like heat exhaustion or heat stroke, we always encourage the participants to hydrate themselves sufficiently and rest whenever required.

KNOWING YOUR LIMIT is important! Adequate training and consultation with your doctor and health specialist before the walk are also critical to prevent injuries during the walk.

19. What type of safety support will be provided for the walk?

Before the event, participants will be given a safety briefing during the designated final briefing session.  Stay tuned for updates on the date of the final briefing.

During the actual event, there will be a mass warm up before start of each walk and there will be dedicated first aid support teams throughout the event. Basic first aid facilities are also available at the checkpoints.

Finally, you are advised to carry basic first aid items like plasters, muscle rub, bandage and cotton wools for your own use.

20. What if I get injured and I am unable to finish the walk?

If you are sustained from any form of injury, please contact the Organisers immediately.  There is an emergency hotline printed at the back of every bib.

21. What facilities are available at the checkpoints?

The checkpoints are essentially basic stations to allow participants to check-in their arrival timing and have a quick rest before they proceed with their journey. Facilities at the checkpoints include basic first aid facilities. Most checkpoints will have spacious areas to give you the opportunity to meet up with your support team.

The Routes

1. Where are we walking?

You will soon find out! 

For safety considerations and to enhance the enjoyment of walkers, we are designing the route along the many park connectors. In situation where park connectors are not available, the participants may have to walk on pedestrian pavements.

The finalised details will be updated via email and website at a later date.

2. Would there be any water stations throughout the routes?

Participants are strongly advised to make their own arrangements (i.e. their support teams) for their personal water consumption throughout the walks. There are convenience stores (e.g. 7-11, Cheers), coffee shops, eateries along the route which you can purchase food and water from.

3. Will the routes of LTAW 2019 be closed to traffic?

The routes have been planned such that it causes minimal disturbance to the public. As such, the routes would not be closed to traffic.

Yes, in order to get our participants ready for the walks, training walks have been scheduled and they are free. Training is not compulsory, but we would strongly encourage participants for the 150 km UltimateWalk, 100 km XtremeWalk and 50 km PowerWalk (Day/Night) to take part.

Training clinics have also been planned, where past walkers, physiotherapists, and nutritionist will give you tips in your preparation. Look out for these on our website!
