Here are some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) being asked this week about the inaugural Terry Fox Walk/Run with some answers from Donna Wilson (HCT).
Q. Where do people gather?
A. The Corniche will be blocked off at the Coffee Pot Roundabout. The Registration desk will be set up on the Corniche walking area at the Hilton end. It will be clearly marked so people should not have trouble finding it.
Q. Where will be the best parking?
A. The Corniche will be blocked off so parking will not be possible along the beach. Parking will be available at Fujairah’s Umbrella Beach area and along the main road. The Sadaf Restaurant parking area will be for volunteers working at the event. There will be signs and people assisting with directions
Q. What is the exact route for the walk/run/cycle?
A. The start of the race will be just behind the Sadaf Restaurant.
There will be three choices:
i) Participants can choose to go up to the first U-turn just past the Marina and come back to the start line (approx 3 km);
ii) The turnaround point for all participants is the third U-turn after which participants will return to the start line (approx. 5 km);
iii) Those who wish to complete the run will do the loop again (approx 9 km).
The routes will all be clearly marked with volunteers at each turnaround.
Q. What medical support will there be?
A. There will be two ambulances in attendance.
Q. What media outlets are promoting the TF Run?
A. Fujairah Media – Radio and TV.
