Dos and Don'ts when setting a run in Singapore
NParks will call up the Chapter that breaches any of these rules and will ban the Chapter till the matter is resolved. A warning will also be
issued to the Chapter. A fine may also be imposed if a breach is committed and the hares will have to bear the cost of the fine.
- JMs need to be more responsible in the checking and approving of run sites chosen by the hares.
- Clubs to put up reminders on their website on the dos and don'ts for hares and to ensure rookie hares are aware of them.
- Only toilet paper is allowed at the Nature Reserves. No chalk marking or flour to be used in the NParks.
- Hares are accountable for their runs and if in the event a fine is imposed, the hares will have to bear the cost.
- Strictly NO CHOPPING of plants in the Nature Reserves.
- No creating or cutting a new path in the Nature Reserves.
- Do not deface or write anything on the notice and sign boards.
- Stick to the designated tracks i.e. those clearly marked by the NPark, if you are laying runs in the Nature Reserves.
- No arrows to be drawn on the roads or anywhere else in the Nature Reserves.
- Use flour only on the ground and not on tree trunks, and strictly outside the Nature Reserves only.
- Labrador Park, Sungei Buloh, Kent Ridge Park and Mount Faber are also managed by the NParks so be mindful when setting runs there.
- Do not use any of the kiosk or shades or pondoks in NParks unless you have sought permission and have received a permit from NParks.
- If a bigger event is being organized, the hares have to apply for a permit to use the facilities at NParks.
- When setting runs in build-up areas, the hares must inform the security department if they are placing flour in the vicinity of their building.(mistaken for anthrax before).
- Hares are to ensure that they pick up any markings (plastic tapes etc) they put up on their trail when are laying their run, i.e., pick up the markings once you lay the paper.
