What makes this event different from last year?
Breakfast  will be given after the race. There will be fun pit stops during the race and celebrities will join too. What’s great about this event is that you can run with your desired costumes or headdress for the costume  and headdress contest. Costumes must be related to each other (e.g. Goldilocks and 3 bears) while for 3k and 5k is the headdress parade. There will be prizes for those who’ll grab Best in Costumes and Best in Headdress. Ronald  Mcdonald will join the kids as they run. And lastly, there will be Mcmoneys which will be used as your ticket for all the games, activities and photobooth available at the Piazza.

Are there any fun activities after the event? What are these?
Yes. We have Face painting, Glitter Tattoo, Balloon Twisting, Arcade games like basketball, Bowling. We also have food stalls and photobooth for that picture perfect moment.

Will there be baggage counters?

Will there be changing tents?

Why is it expensive?
It is Mcdonalds advocacy to help less fortunate children learn how to read. A percentage of your registration fee will be allotted for the Bright Minds Read program which will then educate the children how to read. Plus, a lot of freebies will be given away. There will be free breakfast and a lot more.  

Do senior citizens get a discount?
No, the McHappy day is a fund raising activity for its flagship program Bright Mind Reads. It is not covered by the goods against which a Senior Citizen may apply the 20% discount.

For the family run, should we be related to each other? Or can a group of friends be considered to join?
Whether you are related or not, you can form a group of 4 members to join 3k family run. Don’t forget to wear your best costumes for the event as this will entitle you to get a chance to win a prize.
