- In these assistance zones, you will be able to pick up and drop off anything you. On exit, make sure you are still carrying all the compulsory equipment.
No runner’s assistants will be allowed in the enclosed zones. This rule applies to everyone, including the elite runners. Any assistance must, therefore, take place before or after these zones.
- You will have access to a bag at both assistance zones (27km and 85km), these are 2 different bags and should be labeled accordingly.
- VERY NB: Should you wish to have a bag at Bartinney (85km) this MUST be brought with you to the race village on Friday 1 October 2021 and dropped off in the allocated area at registration.
- Your Franschhoek NG Kerk bag should go with you to the start. This same bag you will have access to at Franschhoek NG Kerk after the Mont Rochelle loop (27km). This bag will then be taken back to the allocated area at registration for collection.
- Waterproof jacket
- Emergency blanket
- Mobile phone: Fully charged
- Water container: Minimum 1 litre (Be aware of your own needs). You alone are responsible for managing your water!
- Reusable Cup: There will be no cups available at the refreshment points or at the finish line, so bring a reusable cup or similar in addition to your water pack. No cup means no drinks!
- Head-lamp: Compulsory for the whole course even if you are at the front of the pack. Bring spare batteries if your model requires it. If your head torch doesn’t work, you will be removed from the race.
- Food: There will only be 2 aid stations with food. Be sure to have enough to keep you going between these points.
- Race BIB: Must be visible and worn on the front (no complaints will be heard if we are unable to place you for this reason). You’ll be given a second electronic chip to attach to the rear of your backpack.
