All Races

Registration

Registration for all races will be open from 06h00 @ Thaba Trails.

Hydration & Nutrition Stations

There will be a minimum of one water table each on the 5km and 10km routes and two water tables on the 20km route. In line with the “Carry Your Own” philosophy there will be no plastic sachets or disposable cups at the water tables, and runners must carry their own portable drinking cups / flasks / bladders. Each water table will stock water, Coke and super energising 32gi sports nutrition drinks. Each water table will also stock basic high energy nutrition items.

Recommended / Compulsory Equipment

We will not require runners on any of the routes to carry any compulsory kit or equipment but will rather expect you to be responsible and to self-guide. Thirsty runners should carry at least 1.5 litres of their own water – do NOT underestimate these trails, especially if it’s looking like being a warm day, even in Winter! Similarly carry food and energy support to suit your own taste / preference. And if it looks like rain, make sure you have some kind of protection. The last two WildJoburg events saw winter rain, and it would be terribly embarrassing to have to be treated for exposure and hypothermia in the middle of Joburg! (although emergency medical professionals will be on hand just in case…). Lastly, don’t forget the sunscreen, and a cap for that horrible hole in the ozone layer.
It goes without saying that everyone is expected to run with a phone with the Race Organiser / Emergency numbers, which will be provided at Race Briefing before each race.
