NOTE: Liability on personal crates

Personal ammo crates

  • Participants can make use of their own crates by dropping these off at Fort Mission TB 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 09h00 on Sunday morning


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

Participants must follow the route instructions for the Rouleurs, 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 TBs and CPs as no support other than medical evacuation will be provided between these points.

Transport to and from Highland Gate: The Trail Light Duty event will start at Highland Gate Golf & Troute Estate. Participants will be transported to the start of that event by the local taxi minibus organisation. Safe parking is also available within the Estate for the duration of the Trail Light Duty event should runners prefer to leave their vehicles at Highland Gate and collect these after the event.

Temporary Bases: The TBs will serve as resupply zones where participants can get hydration and nutrition support. Spectators and supporters will have access to selected TBs.

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 or targets. Recce Mission and Recce Rouleurs 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 approximately 700 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 TB 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.
