Please put up your hand to attract attention. There will be first aid near the finish line and on stand-by at all times. Any aid given by race medical personnel on the course is permissible and will NOT lead to disqualification. If, however, you have any other form of outside assistance you will be disqualified. You will be withdrawn from the race only if you require transportation or if medical personnel consider your continued participation

Withdrawals during the Race

If you must withdraw at any stage of the race you (or someone representing you, such as a relative or friend) MUST report to the recorders at the Finish Line and hand back your chip so we can ensure you are accounted for and not lost.

Recovery

A recovery station will be set up near the finish with fruit, snacks and water. Please help yourself and make sure you get some sugar back into your system to aid recovery. Please make sure you dispose of your rubbish thoughtfully. We need to leave the area as we found it.
