Race numbers are non-transferable, and doing so will create confusion with the results. Should a number be sold or transferred, the Guam Ko'ko' Half Marathon takes NO responsibility for third party errors. Race numbers correspond to the registered participants. Participants who use transferred race numbers will be disqualified and are ineligiblefor division awards and overall prizes.
This year marks the 12th Annual Guam Ko'ko' Half Marathon. Each year, the race grows in the number of participants and as well as the added value for Ko'ko' runners - from the giveaways and activities to the prizes and post-race party. Each finisher will receive an official Guam Ko'ko' Half Marathon event shirt, finisher's medal, a reusable event bag, and access to the post-race party! In addition to all of that, the Guam Ko'ko' Half Marathon is a signature Guam Visitors Bureau sports event that is professionally organized by the experienced team at Guam Sports Events, so you will not only have a safe and good time, but the course quality and overall experience will be world class.

You must be at least age 14 on the day of the race to run in the Half Marathon. There is no minimum age requirement to run in the 10K and 5K races.
For safety and insurance reasons, music players and headphones are not permitted on the course. The Guam Ko'ko' Half Marathon is also one of the few occasions in life in which crowds will be cheering and clapping for YOU. Enjoy it!
The Ko'ko team loves animals, but for the safety of our furry friends, we ask that you leave them at home on race day. Pets will not be permitted on the course.
For the safety of all of the runners, we do not encourage strollers on the race course. However, if participants bring strollers, their child/stroller will NOT be registered, nor receive a finish time. Also, please start toward the back of the starting line to ensure you do not block other runners.
Runners of all abilities are welcome. We recommend that you line up toward the back of the start line and run on the right-hand side of the lane. Be sure not to stop suddenly or veer into the paths of other runners. If you're running with friends, run no more than two abreast. Doing so keeps traffic on the course moving smoothly.

Unfortunately, only ONE race bib is issued per runner. Lost race bibs cannot be replaced under ANY circumstances.
Each race number (and corresponding timing chip) is assigned to YOU specifically. If you wear another person's number, your finishing time will be recorded under HIS/HER name. Please do NOT mix up your race number and timing chip with someone else's. In the event participants mix up bibs, both runners will be disqualified.
