Due to popular demand we are thrilled to announce our new WildJoburg Team Entry Discount. Teams of 4 runners or more will be able to take advantage of a fantastic 20% discount off the entry fees that are applicable as at the date of entry. The entry process is the same – the primary runner (or Team Leader) accesses the entry system using his / her ID number, and selects the team size. The system will automatically apply the discount to teams of 4 or more. Please note that the entry details of ALL team members will be required.
Teams wishing to order awesome colourful WildJoburg technical Anatomic race-shirts for their team including their own unique Team Logo contact the Race Organisers at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange.
Entry Fees & Early Bird Specials
The Early Bird catches the worm, as the old saying goes, or rather the Early-Entering Trailrunner has more money left over for boerewors rolls & beer! As is our WildJoburg tradition, WildJoburg Summer 2019 has an innovative tiered pricing system with aggressively discounted Early Bird Specials for those trail junkies who have some control over their race diaries.

Hydration & Nutrition Stations, and Recommended / Compulsory Equipment
There will be fully stocked water & food tables on all the routes. Approximately half-way through the 5km and approximately half-way through the 10km, and for the 20km at approximately the 5km, 10km and 15km marks (so 3 in all for the 20km).
With this support 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! 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 – 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.
