Does every team member have to run a certain number of legs?
No. So long as all 16 legs are completed, you are free to divvy up them among teammates any way you like.
Do teams have to be made up of four or five runners?
No - we will allow teams to compete with three or two runners if they wish. However, the full team entry fee applies no matter how many racers are on the team.
Do all team members have to be present at Check-In?
Yes, each team member must be at Check-in prior to Race Start. Those racers who are at Check-In are those who will be permitted on the racecourse - no exceptions.
What are you doing in response to COVID-19?
Click here for a summary of the changes we've made and the measures we will be taking to ensure physical distancing between teams; to minimize contact points; and allow for regular hand-washing and disinfecting.
How does the day work?
The race guide (coming in February) provides a full overview, complete with the Race Day itinerary, finer points of the race details, a team planning kit, and more.
What is the total distance that each team member will be running?
That depends entirely on how your team decides to break up the legs, but the typical distance for teams of 4 if they split their legs up evenly would be 25km per person (less for teams of 5). However, teams are entirely free to divvy up the legs as they see fit.
Does the race go through the night like other relay events?
No - the course is formatted such that all team members will be finished before dark. Details on how are provided in the race guide.
Will there be cut-off times?
Yes, but they won't have any impact on a team's results, as team members will be permitted to run legs simultaneously after a certain point. Details on how this works are provided in the race guide.
Will there be food provided?
Yes, although it will not be as per usual. Teams will be issued boxed lunches that will be delivered to each zone at designated points throughout the day.
I'm looking for teammates - can you help?
I heard that this was a point-to-point race - what's up?
Are solo entries permitted?
Yes - new for 2021! A limited number of solo spots will be opened up on a trial basis.
