Q: Can I have more than one supporter on the mountain?
A: No, we have a strict policy of only one support runner on the final mountain section. This supporter must also carry the mandatory safety kit and stay with the runner for the duration of this part of the course. This is for safety and tracking reasons. The mountain is dangerous, the weather unpredictable and we do not want to have people on the mountain we cannot account for. This policy will be enforced at the mountain safety checkpoint – T2a.

Q: Can I have a support runner between T2 and T2A? Can they be on a bike?
A: Yes you can but they must also carry the mandatory kit. We do not allow bikes on the run course.

Q: Can I have extra support vest as I have more than one in my support team?
A: Yes, we can issue you maximum two supporter vests which is used an access pass to the transition areas. You can pass it between different members during the day but remember that only one supporter is allowed in the transitions.
