Mandatory Gear

All competitors need to have their mandatory gear checked before they can receive their race pack at race check-in. 

There are two options for getting your gear checked:

  • Option 1: Online gear check. Not available after 7th April. 

  • Option 2: Have your gear checked at race check-in immediately prior to collecting your race pack. This is the least preferable option, as it can make your race check-in take much longer.

You are not required  to carry all your mandatory gear with you.

But it is mandatory that you have it available at the start/finish HQ  aid station tent.

  • Mandatory Gear [you must carry at all times] everyone

  • Recommended Gear [to be available at the Start/Finish HQ  aid station tent]

Drop bags are to be left at the start/finish HQ  aid station tent.

The mandatory gear required to carry, may change if weather conditions are very cold or wet. 

This decision can be made by the race director at any time.

Please note we will not post any items left behind, it is your responsibility to collect them before 3pm Sunday 28th April 2024
