FAQs

While our events are open to anyone, we recommend that you will have successfully completed at least one standard marathon in the two years prior to registering for the event. This is to ensure that you enjoy the race and have the best opportunity to compete in the race.

Our event is an extremely hard race; with the right combination of training and physical and mental aptitude, there is no reason why you won’t be able to succeed at your goal. In fact, each of our clients will have their own personal goal to achieve, whether it’s to finish, or perhaps finish in a certain time, or finish among the top ten, or even win. In fact, some of our competitors choose a fast walk, when their physical condition, energy or the terrain allows.

The safety and enjoyment of our competitors is our priority, and safety is a priority at all times. Our event has the full support of an experienced medical and safety team. Our medical team is available from the moment you come under our care, to ensure that you are in a fit condition to participate, maintain your health during the event and help with the difficult decision to retire from the race if necessary.
