The purpose of the checkpoints is to ensure the safety of the competitors. Make sure the marshal records your time and race number when you come through a checkpoint. Failing to pass through a checkpoint or failing to stop to get your race number recorded will result in disqualification. If you arrive early at a checkpoint because you elected the incorrect starting time, you will be required to wait until the volunteers are set up – check the Checkpoints and Estimated Running Times document.
- Smith’s Track Checkpoint, about 22km into the race. SES may be here until the last runner comes through. NO drop box available.
‘Comfort foods’ such as salty chips, some Healthy Slice, fruit, water and Tailwind will be provided at the finish.
