  • Ammo crates need to be handed in at Registration before the specified cut-off time on D-Day as the vehicles transporting these will leave Fort Mission before the start of each event.

Ammo crates would be available at the following Forts:

  • Recce Mission events: Each participant will receive one ammo crate at Registration that can be collected and deposited at a designated Fort along the routes. MTB Mission riders will pass through Fort Mission in Dullstroom and ammo crates will be at this Fort.

  • Recce Raid events:  Each rider will receive two ammo crates at registration for packing gear that can be collected and deposited along the routes.

NOTE: Liability on personal crates

Recce Race organisers will not manage the logistics of personal crates. The Recce Race organisation will not take any responsibility for the content in personal crates and will not transport these crates back to Fort Mission in Dullstroom.

Personal ammo crates

  • Participants can make use of their own crates by dropping these off at Fort Mission prior to the start of the event 
  • These crates must be clearly marked with the participant/s' Race Number
  • Personal crates must be collected from Fort Mission before 18h00 on Sunday

LOGISTICAL SUPPORT

NOTE: Route markings only on the Mini Recce, Civvy and  Light Duty routes

Participants must follow the route instructions for the Raid, Mission and Jammie events as these routes are unmarked and must be self-navigated. The turn-offs for the Civvy and Light Duty events are marked and these riders and trail runners must always follow the marked routes.

Riders and trail runners must be self-sufficient between Forts and CPs as no support other than medical evacuation will be provided between these points.

Recce Raid Transport to Ngodwana (Recce Raid): The Recce Raid events will start at Ngodwana. Registration takes place at Fort Hoop that will be based at Kaapsehoop Horse Trail in the Berlin plantation outside Kaapstehoop. No transportation would be provided to participants from Dullstroom and participants will be responsible for their own transport and vehicles. Safe parking is available at Kaapsehoop Horse Trails or Safcol's Berlin Forest Station for the duration of the event.

Forts and FOBs: Forts and the Forward Operating Bases (FOB) will serve as resupply zones where participants can get hydration and nutrition support. Spectators and supporters will have access to all Forts but only selected FOBs.

Check Points: Check points will be manned and some might also serve as basic waterpoints. Participants must check into these points as specified in each event's race instructions to complete the entire route.

Observation Posts: Observation Posts (OPs) might be unmanned or used by Recce Race personnel to 'recce' the access routes. Recce Raid and Recce Mission 

participants will be responsible to check themselves in at all scheduled OPs to complete the entire route..

Medical support: Medical support is provided along the routes, including event emergency 4x4 and other vehicles equipped with satellite phones. During day-time a chopper might also be available and used for emergency evacuations.

Medics would also be placed along the routes at strategic points to facilitate the rapid deployment to a casualty scene. However, Recce Races supply lines are more than 900 km with limited or no GSM coverage in mostly hostile terrain that is inaccessible for normal vehicles. It might take time for medics to perform a casevac.

Mechanical Support: Tiffies will be available on D-Day for last minute emergency repairs. They will also provide mechanical support at For Mission in Dullstroom.

MTB riders should however ensure that they have most critical spares and repair kits with them, also providing basic chain lube, tubeless plugs and chain links for emergencies free of charge. Tyres, tubeless sealant, chains and other components will be available at 3rd party service provider’ fees, payable on the spot.

Navigation

Routes will not pass through any local villages or towns. Riders and trail runners will not pass through other establishments along the route but will encounter LPs (Local Population); while these are mainly expected to be friendly, in some areas LPs might be hostile.

The Recce Race will have several re-supply zones along the route. These are located at Forts, as well as at some Forward Operating Bases (FOB) or CPs (Check Points).

Participants will also cross numerous rivers and creeks, pass by endless fountains and other sources of water...

Riders and trail runners will be entirely dependent on getting food and hydration supplies at these points.

As some, or most riders and trail runners, will be out on the route for a long time they can expect the following supplies along the route:

  • Food: Chips, baby potatoes, soup & bread, vetkoek and jaffels
  • Fruits & Vegs: Bananas and/or oranges
  • Sweets: Jelly Babies, Jelly Beans & Bar Ones
  • Hydration: Water & Cold Drinks
  • Energy: PVM Octane Powder, PVM Octane Gel and PVM Energy Bar (originally developed for the Recces)
  • Forts & Finish: Warm meals, PVM Energy & Protein Recovery Drinks
