4 laps with a total race distance of more than 190km & a little over 16,000m of vertical ascent. Totals are taken from what we think is the fastest navigated route. We have navigated the course numerous times! Any navigational alternatives may increase overall distance and vertical climb, probably decreasing your chance of success.
Total allowable time of 60 hours. The first cut off is enforced after the completion of lap 2 which must be completed by 30 hours. The second cut off is enforced at the end of lap 3 which must be completed by 45 hours. Competitors unable to meet the lap cut off times will not be allowed to continue and will be withdrawn from the race.
Unmarked course between a number of checkpoints (CP) that MUST be navigated and reached in sequence. There is route choice between CP's.
Unmanned checkpoints (CP) Failure to visit each unmanned CP in sequence will mean competitors are withdrawn from the race. Notewe will know if you have completed each CP in sequence!!
Navigation is by map and compass only. No GPS devices, altimeters or watches of any type are allowed. Timekeeping will be supplied.
All other race information will only be communicated to individual competitors or team administrators who successfully receive an entry confirmation.
