Hydration and Training
Heat stress and exhaustion is common in running on a hot day. Please ensure you are well hydrated for the race. There are drink stations along the course with water, electrolyte and first aid. It is important that if you are feeling unwell you report to event personnel or first aid stations immediately.
You can further protect yourself by ensuring you have applied plenty of sunscreen pre-event and wear sunglasses and a light-weight hat.
Please ensure you have sufficiently trained to participate in the event or have allowed enough lead up time to prepare for the event. In 2017 the electrolyte will be Nuun active.
First aid stations are located at the start and finish as well as along the course, with teams located at the drink stations and roaming bike teams. They will provide immediate assistance and if further assistance is required, such as transportation to a hospital. Please note that these costs are incurred by the patient.
