4. Cut-off Times
In the interests of runner safety and to ensure that no runners risk being stuck out in the desert in the dark, the Klipspringer Race Organisers will be applying a Cut-off policy. The cut-off policy is generous and essentially provides runners with full daylight hours to complete their run, but it will be strictly applied.
Cut-Off #1 Rhino Gate CP & Water Table approximately 6km-7km from the Start: Challenge 11h00; Lite 12h00
Cut-Off #2 Old Farmhouse CP & Water Table approximately 25km-26km from the Start for the Challenge and approximately 11.5km-12.5km from the Start for the Lite: 15h00
Cut-Off #1 Rhino Gate CP & Water Table – approximately 5km from the Start: Challenge 10h00; Lite 10h30
Cut-Off #2 Old Farmhouse CP & Water Table – approximately 24km from the Start for the Challenge and approximately 13km from the Start for the Lite: 14h00
Any runners not through the Checkpoints by the allotted times will be transported back to the Race Village.
The Race Organisers reserve the right to use their sole discretion and pull runners off the course in the interests of safety.
