You must race with your own race bib. If you run with another person’s bib and you have not formally transferred that bib with the organiser, you will be disqualified and the organiser is not responsible for you on the course. Moreover, if you run with another person’s bib you endanger yourself and others as the organiser will not have your medical records or your emergency contact.

Results - Timing

Your bib contains an electronic timing chip. You must pass all timing systems on course to get a valid finish time. Failure to do so will result in inspection of the result by the organisers. 


The course

  • You must complete the marked course on foot under your own power.
  • You must stay on the marked course. Short cuts are not permitted. If you get lost, return to the last sighted marking.
  • Littering is prohibited – this results in disqualification.

Cut-off Times

  • All participants must adhere to the checkpoint staff instructions regarding cut-off times. 
  • For your cut-off times, please refer to the course profile for your distance. 
  • The cut-off time is the time you MUST LEAVE the checkpoint, not the time you arrive. 

Checkpoints / Food

  • There will be water and fruit available at all checkpoints. You will need to bring and carry any other food you require for the duration of the race.
  • 70km runners will receive extra food at CP4.
  • Outside assistance from supporters is only permitted at the checkpoints.
  • Please note that you have to carry a personal first aid kit.

Emergency / Withdrawal

  • If you are in trouble or need medical assistance on the course, you should use the EMERGENCY NUMBER printed on the backside of your race number. Please make contact with the local people and ask them to speak to our safety team. The locals will be able to tell your exact location to our crew.
  • If you withdraw, you MUST inform our race team – call the DNF number on the back of your race bib or tell our checkpoint staff.

  • The wearing of iPods or other music players with headphones is allowed. However, it is up to you to use them in a sensible and safe manner so that you remain aware of your surroundings at all times.
