If you have any doubts about your health and fitness, please consult your doctor or health specialists before signing up.

However, if you decides to take an extended break, do inform the organisers, via the phone number printed on the number bib or the walk marshals, so that we know you are still participating. Also, do note that the event ends at 1600hr on 28 August 2022, so the clock is always ticking!

17. 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. Seriously, some do take naps and some do 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 with fellow walkers.

Remember, “Let’s Take A Walk 2022” is a non-competitive event. We are here to have fun! Again, if you decide to take an extended break, please inform the organisers via the number printed on the number bib or the walk marshals so that the volunteers can continue to look out for you.

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

Foot 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 to have ample rest the day before the walk events. Doing warm-up helps to prevent muscle cramps during the walk. To prevent serious conditions 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.
