A lot of people might ask this question. Surely there is enough of these race’s in South Africa? We don’t think so, with OCR being the fastest growing sport in the world we believe that there is ample room for more choice of race as well as educating a larger portion of the population regarding the fun that can be had by participating in these type of events. Furthermore we will strive to give you a better experience than the best out there, but at a price that gives you more bang for your buck.
Are the various races timed?
Both the 5km and 10km race is timed (except the Newbie category that is untimed) and you therefore need to buy a timing chip for R 50.00. This is a once-off cost as you can use this in our future races.
How do I enter?
Follow the links on our “ Events & Entry ” page to enter. These links will take you to the entry site. Please remember that online entries will close 24 hours before the start of the race.
What if I can’t do an obstacle?
For the 5km race we have introduced what we call the “ Chicken Run” if you are not able to do an obstacle we have a surprise penalty for you, that will allow you to bypass the obstacle. If you are doing the 5km & 10km timed race you have to attempt the obstacle. If you can’t cross it, a penalty time will be added to your time. If you refuse to attempt the obstacle you will be disqualified. In the 5km & 10km Elite batches you are disqualified if you do not finish an obstacle.
Are spectators welcome?
Yes, we welcome them with open arms!!. Entry is free of charge except where the terrain we are hosting charges a fee to enter. We set the terrain up in such a way as to be “spectator friendly”. with beer gardens, & food stalls to entertain them. Most of the high spectator value obstacles are placed strategically close to the main terrain, to enable spectators to watch your bravery.
How many people can enter as a team?
We believe a team shouldn’t become a crowd and have therefore decided to limit a team to 4 individuals. There is however no limit on how many teams from a particular group of friends, family or company enters.
Is there a place to store my valuables?
Yes indeed, we will provide a “ Locker Room” at each of our races where you can rent space to leave all your valuables while enjoying the race with total peace of mind. Cost amounts to R 30.00. To make it easy for you we have included the option to buy your locker space when doing your online entry for the race.
Do you have shower / change room facilities?
At each of our races there will be shower facilities as well as separate men’s and women change rooms. We will do our utmost to ensure these areas are of a good quality.
Do I need cash on the terrain?
What happens if I get injured?
We always strive to make our venues as safe as possible for contestants and spectators. Accidents however do happen. Our procedure for this is as follows:•Cuts, bruises ect will be handled by the medics at their tent on site.•If you are injured on the track we have 4x4 ambulances to transport you to the main terrain from where a decisison will be made to transport you per road ambulance to hospital or not.•For serious / life threatening injuries we will call in a helicopter ambulance to evacuate you to the nearest medical facility.If you are on a medical aid all of the above will happen via private institutions as determined by your medical aid, if not then we willmake use of Government hospitals and facilities.
