Personal ammo crates
NOTE: Route markings only on Light Duty routes
Participants must follow the route instructions for the Recce Mission and Jammie events as these routes are unmarked and must be self-navigated. Most of the turn-offs for the Light Duty events are marked and these riders and trail runners must always follow the marked routes.
Riders and trail runners must be self-sufficient between TBs and CPs as no support other than medical evacuation will be provided between these points.
Transport to and from Highland Gate: Participant are responsible to get to the START at Highland Gate by themselves. Safe parking is available within the Highland Gate Golf & Trout Estate for the duration of the Recce Mission. Complementary Recce Mission shuttle service will be available from the FINISH at Fort Mission race village in Dullstroom to the START at Highland Gate from 12h00 on D-Day for vehicle collection.
Temporary Bases: The TBs will serve as resupply zones where participants can get hydration and nutrition support. Spectators and supporters will have access to selected TBs.
Check Points: Check points will be manned and some might also serve as basic waterpoints. Participants must check into these points as specified in each event's race instructions to complete the entire route.
Observation Posts: Observation Posts (OPs) might be unmanned or used by Recce Mission personnel to 'recce' the access routes or targets. Participants will be responsible to check themselves in at all scheduled OPs to complete the entire route..
Medical support: Medical support is provided along the routes, including event emergency 4x4 and other vehicles equipped with satellite phones. During day-time a chopper might also be available and used for emergency evacuations.
Medics would also be placed along the routes at strategic points to facilitate the rapid deployment to a casualty scene. However, Recce Mission supply lines are approximately 300 km with limited or no GSM coverage in mostly hostile terrain that is inaccessible for normal vehicles. It might take time for medics to perform a casevac.
Mechanical Support: Tiffies will be available on D-Day from 05h00 until the start of the last MTB event for last minute emergency repairs. They will also provide mechanical support at For Tower, Fort Gate and Fort Berg .
MTB riders should however ensure that they have most critical spares and repair kits with them, also providing basic chain lube, tubeless plugs and chain links for emergencies free of charge. Tyres, tubeless sealant, chains and other components will be available at 3rd party service provider’ fees, payable on the spot.
NOTE: Accommodation stands cost R300 each.
Accommodation stands must be booked and paid for as part of the Recce Mission entry fee. Once all stands have been booked-out this option will not be available to participants anymore.
