Kit Check: This is an extremely exposed route early in the season. On this basis a full kit check will be done at the start, and spot checks at the finish for:

Waterproof whole body cover, hat, gloves, map of the route, compass, whistle,
emergency food. Entry is dependent on your carrying this as a minimum!

Not to carry them will result in disqualification.

Please note: The organisers may increase this requirement on the day, but in any event the kit specified is a minimum to avoid disqualification. It is still the responsibility of the competitor to decide whether they have the skills to negotiate the course successfully and safely in the conditions in expectation of no support, and if so, to determine what extra kit they may need to take bearing in mind it can take a very long time for rescue to locate an immobile runner. You have been warned!

Newlands Any profits that are made from the race will be donated back to the Newlands Valley.
