TIMING: Runners will be timed with an Amarider Trail Tag and timing data will be streamed live on www.trailtag.co.za. You can purchase a permanent Trail Tag at R100 which you will use at monthly Trail Run events. If you have a Trail Tag from previous events please bring it along to registration.

Runners also have the option of renting a temporary Amarider Trail tag at R20 and will be given to you at registration with your racenumber. The temporary tag will be taken off at the finish line.




Remember NO Trail Tag - NO Time. Late entries must remember that the file must still be captured & loaded - so your name will appear later.

Wear the tag around your right wrist like a watch. Not around your ankle please.

1. Only run with your own TrailTag
2. Please return your rental tags at the finishline, staff will assist
3. The reader is powerful enough to read through arm warmers etc.

A briefing will take place 5 minutes before the start - runners must stay on the marked trail or will be disqualified. Listen to the briefing at the start which route to follow. Do not turn unless there is an arrow. Follow signs in front of you!

Please do not litter! We also urge you to not leave valuables in your vehicle. We can keep car keys  for you.
