Course marking - Yellow A5 size signs and bright orange & pink ribbons together with local white chalk

 

Time limit - There will be a cut-off near the end of the day to ensure all get in before dark or close to dark for the 100km category. If concerned then recommend joing 60km if you are not very fit as plenty of time to hike this category. Can look under RESULTS for our overseas events to get an idea of how long the average hiker/runner takes to complete our 60/100km overseas events in different countries as usually 5 - 10 hours for a 40km day and 2-6 hours for 20km day depending on your level of fitness and how many times you stop to take photos.

Briefing before the race:

There will be a race briefing before each night to give out the maps of the following day where a detailed explanation of the course will be given and questions answered.


Equipment - see website link for mandatory gear as changes country to country, but basically we want you to carry the minimum including a first aid kit and rain/wind jacket and leave the rest at the hotel to go fast and lightweight.

Food - includes breakfast in morning with different local restaurants (Sichuan style) to grab your lunch/dinner 5 minutes walking from hotel.

Accomodation - all will get their own beds with sheets. If concerned then bring your own sleeping bag to put on top, but hygiene standard is quite good.

Charity - Rmb 100 from each person will go towards school supplies, but we encourage all to donate more when entering this year to help us purchase more for local schools in the area as usually we purchase exercise books, drawing books, pens, pencils, soccer balls, badminton rackets and costs are increasing in China.
