• Registration is for 2 friends, better to run with a friend you know and trust.
• Best if you get 2 blind folds from home. After the first person uses the blind fold it gets too sweaty and may be uncomfortable for your partner to reuse. Also practice with your own blindfold, wash and then use it during run. a new unwashed cloth may not work for you when you try for first time.
• The distance you both choose can be 3Km, 5Km, 10Km, 15Km or Half Marathon. Distance depends on your and partner’s ability. Each partner is supposed to run half of the distance blind folded.
