While the normal weather in Chennai at the time of the MEPZ Run is normally stable, the organiser need to reserve the right to call off the race in case of a cyclone, other extreme weather or natural or other disaster. In case the race has to be cancelled and alternatives cannot be arranged no refunds will be given since costs to vendors would still have to be paid. If the race is cancelled the organiser will still try to make alternative arrangements, but this cannot be guaranteed. This is part of the Rules & Regulations. In case this happens the organisers will inform all applicants and give detailed information.
Exactly what you should consume before and during a race depends on what your stomach can handle, but you definitely want to make sure you consume enough carbohydrate to delay glycogen depletion and hypoglycaemia and enough fluid to delay dehydration. Both conditions cause you to slow your pace. Taking carbs and fluid at regular intervals throughout the race can make a huge difference in how you feel and perform. Bananas and salt may also be helpful since they helps you avoiding cramps.
Registration will be done online and closes on March 5, 2015 or 3000 runners whichever comes first. Registration can be done for individuals or for groups. In case of groups, the person registering will ensure that all participants accept the rules and regulations on the site.
