Please arrive in good time to ensure registration is completed well before the start time.

Sportident:
Sporident (SI) cards will be issued to all competitors and must be secured to the wrist or clothing throughout the event.  The rules of competition as advertised are amended to require the SI control boxes at the control sites to be "punched" by all team members using the assigned SI cards.  It will not be necessary to punch a start control.  All team members must punch controls at approximately the same time, taking account of the requirement to visit control sites together.  All team members and individual competitors must punch the finish control.  The finish time for the team will be the last finish time to be recorded and any time penalty incurred by the team will be based on this time.  All SI cards must be downloaded after punching the finish.
