Your health and safety is our primary concern.

ALERTATHON 2020 is a virtual run & ride event. Running and cycling could be very exciting; however, they also pose several medical risks. We want you to have a most memorable, safe, and beautiful event participation experience for all the runners & riders across all age groups.

Therefore, we request every participant to carefully follow and understand the event rules, exercise-related medical warnings, and risks to enjoy the experience comfortably and safely.

Proper walking, running, or riding etiquette is expected at all times, including maintaining awareness of your surroundings, following road traffic rules, wearing helmets, especially during the COVID-19 and lockdown times.  Please ensure all minors wear proper safety gear, and are properly accompanied by adults.

Have a wonderful day ahead of you, and happy learning first-aid!
