Therefore, the organizers called on the participants to observe the announced times to avoid inconveniences and also called on those collecting numbers for their friends or relatives to ensure they have copies of their identity cards or consent letters allowing the representatives to collect on their behalf.

“We hope that the participants will turn up in numbers at the collection points in Dar es Salaam and Arusha to reduce congestion in Moshi,” said the organizers, adding that once the exercise is closed no more numbers or kits will be issued on race day.

The organizers also issued strict warnings against those selling numbers online illegally saying that legal action will be taken against them. “This is illegal and we take legal action against them,” said the organizers.
