One always thinks, how can anything possibly go wrong.

Well, occasionally things do go wrong. Runners can become disoriented and stray from the run course or sustain an injury.

Please carry a space blanket. They cost little and weigh next to nothing but can save lives. Plus carry a whistle and/or pencil light and/or mobile phone.These items weigh little but will assist us in finding you should you become lost or immobilised.

You will find emergency telephone numbers on the back of your racebib. If all else fails, dial 000 for help. But remember, the mobile signal in the Park is unreliable. It works in some places but not others.

We recommend that you carry a mobile phone but that you leave it turned off unless you have a need to use it. The intermittent signal will rapidly drain your battery.
