Mandatory Equipment

Equipment.

The Organization has reduced the mandatory equipment list to the very basic essential survival items. These items are an absolute must have and the mandatory equipment will be checked before the start of the Race and then regularly during the race. Failure to show all the items whenever asked will result in time penalties or the inability for the participant to continue in the race. These measures are for the safety of the participants. The mandatory equipment must be carried at all times during all the six stages regardless of the weather.
