How will safety issues be managed at District Race KL?

The safety of our explorers our number one priority and underlies the entire District Race experience. For starters, our grids are designed with safety in mind (e.g. avoiding highways, cross walks with busy traffic) and we educate users through safety guidelines and rules (e.g. no jaywalking) prior to race day. We also work with local authorities in Malaysia to ensure that the District Race experience is a pleasant and safe one for explorers and members of the public. District Race KL will also be held in conjunction with car-free Sunday in Kuala Lumpur on 3 November.
