Checkpoints and Team Tracking

  1. The whole team must check in and check out together at each checkpoint. On arrival at each checkpoint the whole team must go directly to the 'timing table' to check in. The whole team must be together to check in. When leaving each checkpoint the whole team needs to return to the 'timing table' together to check out. Teams must not check out until they are actually leaving the checkpoint.
  2. If a team decides to leave the course temporarily for any reason, it must do so from a designated checkpoint. The entire team must notify checkpoint staff of their intention and an estimated return time. The team must resume the event at the same checkpoint it left from.
  3. If a team has not departed a checkpoint by the checkpoint closing time, the team will not be allowed to continue.

Withdrawals, Emergency and Safety Procedure
  1. If a team member needs to withdraw at a checkpoint, the withdrawing member must sign the withdrawal form at the checkpoint. Remaining team members may continue on the course once this process has been completed and checkpoint staff have given approval for the team to continue.
  2. If any team member is injured, the team should try and bring the injured person to the nearest checkpoint and follow rule 15. If the team member cannot make it to the nearest checkpoint, the team must follow the steps in the Emergency Procedures. Remaining team members may continue on the course once the team member is safely collected by a first aid crew. When the remaining team members get to the next checkpoint, they must sign the withdrawal form for the injured person and follow the instructions of checkpoint staff prior to continuing on the course.
  3. Teams must not leave a team member unaccompanied on the course. If a team member becomes seriously injured or ill and cannot be moved, the team must follow the steps in the Emergency Procedures.
  4. If a team drops to less than three members (for 100km) and two members (for 50km) they must find another team to travel with in order to be allowed to continue. Those teams must then advise the checkpoint staff at the timing table to get this travel arrangement recorded, and must then check out together and remain together on the course. Note: this does not mean your team will be 'joining' the other team - each team will retain their identity throughout.
