Important Note for Ultramarathon Participants:
Participation in this event is at the runner’s own risk. Although the organizer has experienced medical personnel at various points along the course, it difficult for medical assistance to reach runners immediately. Each runner is encouraged to consult with his or her own personal doctor regarding any physical or medical limitations before attempting the race. It is important for each entrant to recognise the potential physical and mental stresses which may evolve from participation in an Ultramarathon distance.
Runners may be subjected to extremes of heat, dehydration, hypoglycemia, hyponatremia, disorientation and mental and physical exhaustion. The organiser and the medical staff strive to work with runners. They will do all they reasonably can to ensure “safe passage”, but ultimately runners must understand their own limitations and it is better to follow the dictates of your body and not your ambitions. Adequate physical and mental conditioning prior to the Run is mandatory. If you have not been able to prepare properly, do not attempt to run an ultramarathon distance.
There will be sufficient aid stations, water and sports drinks will be offered at all the aid stations and they are approximately 5km to 6km apart. Food will be provided for 50km, 84km & 100km Ultramarathon runners however, as much as possible you are encouraged to be self-sufficient as individual preference & suitability for nutrition defers.
Fully equipped ambulances and paramedics will be on standby along the race route and end point.
