First Aid

First Aid personnel will be on hand during the event and will be located at the finish line/admin area.  


Lap Counters

Each club is responsible for supplying enough lap scorers/counters for the number of teams that they have submitted. If your club has a large number of teams, we recommend that you organise one person to manage 2-3 teams as a maximum, as managing numerous teams can be difficult.


Please ensure that your scorers arrive in sufficient time to complete the scorecard before the beginning of the races.
