This avoids mix ups with announcements, emergency contact information on the reverse of the race number, finisherpix, and DBMax timing.

Absolutely everything you need to know about the Long Course Weekend will be communicated a few weeks before the event via e-mail. This will include event timings. It is important to carefully read through this information as details may be different to those on the website. We recommend using the online Event Pack as a guide, as an email will be sent to the address you registered with notifying you of final details and possible amendments.

When will I receive my timingchip and BIB number?

These must be collected at the time of registration upon showing photo ID and a signed copy of the disclaimer.

Can I use a personal listening device?

It is very important that you remain aware of your surroundings for the duration of the race as some parts of the course are on open roads and others cross public pathways. Therefore we do not allow participants to use their audio device during the races.

Do I have to participate in all three days?

Long Course Weekend offers a series of events and distances over the course of 3 days. You can enter just 1 discipline, multiple disciplines or the entire Long Course Weekend. LCW is the perfect tailored made multisport package. It's your choice!
