Optional Transport back to the Start Venue Available on Sign Up

Each runner will have supplied an up to date emergency contact to extract them from the race on sign up and in the lead up to the race.

Depending on the location, no more than one or two Support Crews members supporting an individual runner are permitted in a Village Hall at any one time, these must not impede Village Halls nor other runners and further Info will be provided to Crews closer to the event indicating where the Crews are permitted.  Some of the Village Halls are medium sized Halls so to have 3 or 4 crew members for one runner limits the space.  Support crews must not take the food nor drink from the Village Hall except for their runner unless given permission to do so.  Support Crews must respect Event Staff and are not permitted into the kitchen area unless given permission to do so by the Checkpoint Manager.   Failure to do so will result in the Support crew being asked to leave the Venue and possible time implications or disqualification of the runner.  During night time periods or if it is obvious runners are sleeping at the Hall it is essential that Support crews respect runners and keep their voices quiet or they will be asked to leave the venue.
