It is important for each entrant to recognize the potential physical and mental stresses which may evolve from participation in this event. Runners may be subjected to extremes of heat and cold. They may develop hypothermia, hyperthermia, dehydration, hypoglycemia, hyponatremia, disorientation and mental and physical exhaustion.
We and our medical staff will strive to work with runners. We have provided first aid kits to the various aid stations and will have a qualified medical person on hand for the duration of the event in case of emergency. We will also provide a 4WD to cater for any emergency including evacuation.
We will do all we reasonably can to ensure “safe passage” for the whole of the event, but ultimately runners must understand their own limitations. This is one event where it is better to follow the dictates of your body; not necessarily your ambitions!
Adequate physical and mental conditioning prior to the event is essential. If you have not been able to prepare properly, do not attempt to run!
Runners should appreciate the risks associated with participation in this event. Actions may have to be taken on your behalf under extreme time constraints and adverse circumstances. We will make every reasonable effort to give assistance whenever possible.
However, ultimately it is you who is in charge and you are likely to be solely responsible for creating your own crisis that we must then respond to. Be careful, be responsible, and do not exceed your own abilities and limitations.
In the event that a runner requires emergency evacuation and or emergency treatment and hospitalisation we will do our best to assist but ultimately the runner must assume all financial obligations connected with this service. Run management cannot be assume responsibility for any costs incurred.
Please be prepared, stay safe and enjoy your run.
