Entry Fees & Early Bird Specials
#inflationmustfall! Zumanomics is hitting us all these days but to counter rising prices, and to keep some cash in your pocket for Christmas presents, WildJoburg 2017 has implemented an innovative tiered pricing policy. Aggressive Early Bird Specials offer fantastic discounted Entry Fees allowing trailheads with some diary control to take advantage of old-fashioned prices.

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.
