Please note, where props are being used by any individual or group, the size of the props should be such which can go through metal detectors and/or baggage scanners placed at the stadium premises. Majja Run participants who wish to participate in the contest, need to assemble at the judging stage through Gate G-C inside the athletic stadium.
