This from the final info e-mail:
35km Runners Note:
"The improved route is more than 35km, with tough ascents, tricky technical running and descents that should be walked. This is a challenging mountain run, that will take the fit, fast runners more than 3 hours and the normal folk up to 6 hours, or more.
You should take 2 litres of water, the berg is dry. You are required to take with you a minimum of 1 litre of hydration, food for the trail (like a sarmie, energy bars, fruit or a roast chicken - you will need the energy!), a charged cell phone and a wind-breaker.
The challenge is to complete this adventure intact. There are no marshals, the course is marked with arrows and cairns. Stay awake and follow these markers. The vultures are circling. Take it easy, enjoy the journey, stop to look at the views. Please listen to briefing at the start of the run."
That certainly sounds like a lot of fun! Looking at these photos from last year I know I will have fun...but also suffer while having it...
Have a great one!
