Please be aware the mountain element of the 2017 event will not be marked/flagged. Maps will be provided in the Race Pack and an overview map with the route marked will be on display in the Registration Area. A good standard of navigation will be required to complete the course safely. Competitors must appreciate the potential seriousness of being in the mountains in bad weather/poor visibility. Volunteer marshals will be strategically placed around both the bike and mountain element, in the event of competitors becoming injured or getting into difficulty. A kit check will be undertaken before competitors are allowed to compete. Any competitor who does not have the minimum kit for the mountain element will have an opportunity to purchase items from the Tiso pop-up shop. The minimum kit MUST be taken on the mountain element – this maybe checked and anyone found not having this, will be subject to a time penalty.
MINIMUM KIT LIST FOR MOUNTAIN ELEMENT
