Race Entry Pack Collection
ONE team member must be present to collect the TOYOTA Ekiden Team race pack. Team race packs will not be distributed individually. You will not be able to have another person collect on behalf of your team. All standard REPC rules apply. Please click here for more information.
Items to bring
- Race bib
- Gear deposit bags (if necessary)
- Sash – Runner 1 must bring sash given during Race Entry Pack Collection. This will be used as a “baton” to pass on to subsequent runners at the changeover zones
All participants are advised to travel light, but all Ekiden runners are allowed to drop their bags at the F1 Pit Building Bag Deposit at the Start Line. Bags will be deposited using your unique bib number, so Ekiden team members can deposit and collect their bags individually. If you and your team mates decide to do so, we recommend that Runner 1 deposit all the bags on the team’s behalf.
If your team would like to deposit your bags as a team (all bags deposited under ONE team mate’s unique bib number), this is allowed as well. However, in this scenario, you will not be able to collect your bags individually.
Please ensure all bags deposited are collected. All bag deposit rules apply (only the bags provided at REPC will be accepted).
All five runners will get a medal upon completing the race. The 5th and final runner will collect all five medals on behalf of the team.
Plan Your Journey
Each of you will be reporting to different locations to start your leg of the relay. The following are some suggestions on how you can get to these points. Please plan your journey appropriately and give yourselves ample time to drop your bags at bag deposit (if needed), get to your starting point and get ready for your race.
After you have completed your leg of the relay, you and your Ekiden team mates are not required to reunite. But if you want to reunite as a team, please head to the post-race zone at the F1 Pit Building. This area will be open to all athletes and members of the public post-race. If you want to watch your last runner cross the Finish Line, you can head to the spectator areas at The Float. However, please note that Ekiden Runners 1 – 4 are not allowed to go on course or enter the Athlete Recovery area at The Float.
The Transport Hub, located near the F1 Pit Building, is where Ekiden shuttle buses will pick up and drop off runners.
How to get to the Transport Hub:
- Walk 5-8 min from the F1 Pit Building, towards Raffles Boulevard
- Take the MRT (Promenade Station Exit A or C) & walk 5-8 min towards Raffles Boulevard
Leaving the Race
All TOYOTA Ekiden runners will be able to purchase ShareTransport tickets for the 1:30am or 3am shuttle service after the race. Visit here for more information.
