For your safety, you must carry a set of mandatory gear at all times whilst in the event. The weather can change very quickly so be prepared for any conditions.
Why are you made to carry mandatory gear?
MANDATORY GEAR CHECKS
All runners in Valamar Trail need to have their mandatory gear checked before they can collect their race number. Your gear can be checked at Race Check-In immediately prior to collecting your race pack.
What happens if you don’t pass gear check at race check-in?
If you fail gear check at Race Check-In, you will need to find a replacement item from Sport Box store at The Event Expo before you can collect your race number. The Sport Box store will be open during the Race Check-In.
Does the gear get checked again during the race?
Yes, there will be random gear checks during the event and if you are missing any item you will not be allowed to continue until the item can be replaced. You will also receive a time penalty.
