First time seeing North Face being the title sponsor of a local urban race...but this sounds like an urban race with a twist. Pretty interesting.

this kind of race, organiser is very "sian nang".....

no need for road closure.
no need for direction board.
no need to put distance marker. no complain from runners on inaccurate distance marker....

only need to have water point near the checkpoint....

If you guys served your NS under 3rd Division, I guess you are familiar with their Tiger Trail event. This run is very similar.

What if participants take public transport or other means as shortcuts between check points? Allowed?

i guess they won't be able to. simply not enough manpower.
based on the belief that most of the runners will be honest and not attempt to cheat....

I think in their site they say,
For teams not all members have to cross each check point.
So some can skip lah.
