Every racer will be temperature checked inside their vehicle on arrival.

Face coverings must be worn from vehicle/carpark to registration/check-in through to the briefing, warm-up, start and finish. A face-covering must be carried in a water-proof bag or pouch for the duration of the race – to be used if the 2m distancing rules cannot be obtained at or near obstacles. A face covering will be given to every racer as they cross the finish line and must be worn immediately. There are no exceptions to this rule. There are no exemptions for not wearing a face covering whether it be medical or any other reason.

Groups of up to 30 people up to 2-3 metres socially distanced will be allowed in any one area.

Expect a rolling, staggered start which may not adhere to your published time.

Social distancing systems, touchless check-in, temperature checking, track & trace and wave/group sizes of 5 people released every few minutes.

Obstacle sanitisation in operation,

Racers must use the full width of every obstacle & keep apart at all times. Team-work is not permitted.
