Please take careful note of the following important information:

Boxes can be collected from either of the race registration venues     

Boxes must be handed back to the race organisation before 20h00 on Friday 25 April 2014 at the Ceres registration venue, or before 06h15 on Saturday 26 April 2014 at the start line.

The box delivery vehicle will be departing from the start venue at 06h30 sharp.           

No liquids may be placed in the boxes.           

All boxes will be delivered to the Jupiter Lounge finish venue, in Sutherland after the last rider clears Check Point . Participants must please ensure that they collect them from there.

DON’T PLAN TO HAND YOUR BOXES IN AT THE LAST MINUTE AS YOU  MAY JUST MISS THE TRUCK AND THEN RUN THE RISK OF NOT HAVING  SUPPORT ALONG THE WAY. 

Support Vehicles 
Each solo participant or team may have a vehicle that provides  backup services at the two specified points along the route. (check  Point1 and Check Point 3)

Service vehicles must follow the prescribed alternate routes and may  not, under any circumstances, drive on the actual event route.
