REQUIRED RACE GEAR

Race officials require all participants to carry mandatory personal and team gear. This is the minimum gear required. Participants should bring extra gear depending on weather conditions and should carry their own food (e.g., energy bars). Food, water and sports drink will also be available at (at least) two places on the course. A gear check may be made on the course. Failure to have all required gear will result in a time penalty and possible disqualification. Teams are also encouraged to carry a cell phone on the course in case of emergency. However, a cell phone can not be used as a navigational device (compass and/or GPS). Cell phones must be packed in a taped bag and can not be opened during the race unless in case of emergency.
