The Jammie events are MTB and Trail Running support events on the Mission routes.
The Jammie ultra-distance routes are unmarked and participants must be self-sufficient. Jammies must do their own navigation by making use of the GPX route files for each event, or the 1:50 000 topographic maps in electronic format.
While the physical and mental challenge will be less extreme than the Mission events, Jammies will endure much to complete their own mission.
Without the support of Jammies, few Special Forces Operations would be successful.
Jammies will be in close support of the Mission warriors
and get a real taste of the action.
The MTB Jammie mountain bike route will be 92 km, a change from the previous years' 120 km. To make it even more accessible to riders of various fitness levels this event will for the first time allow eBikes.
Both the Jammie events take place on D-Day, i.e. Jammies will start with the Recce Mision eventsd.
Jammie mountain bikers or trail runners must make any of the time cut-offs along the route. If they fail to make any of the time cut-offs these MTB riders and trail runners can continue as Light Duties, or they will be extracted and Returned-to-Unit (RTU).

‘Jammie’ is the terminology used for Special Forces support personnel that are
