Team members must not leave a checkpoint until the whole team has reached that checkpoint (unless a team member withdraws - please see withdrawals and injuries for more details).

Display/wear your allocated team identification number.

Agree that a member of the team always wears the timing wristband (or equivalent) during the Event.

Withdrawals and Injuries

If you wish to withdraw from the event, you must first report to the nearest checkpoint or contact Event Control and return your timing device.

For safety where a team member withdraws on the course due to injury, only teams with three remaining team members may continue. For the avoidance of doubt teams of three will not be allowed to continue when one is injured, the remaining two will need to descend with their injured teammate.

Where a team member withdraws it is the responsibility of remaining team members to ensure that the organisers are aware of the withdrawal, the team may not continue until it has been reported.

Two team members may continue if another team is willing to formally accept responsibility for them for the remainder of the event, in such instances Event staff must be notified before proceeding.

Any team member who is injured or exhausted during the event must be brought to the nearest checkpoint for assistance. If the casualty cannot be moved, one person must stay with them while the remaining members seek help. If in a team of three one person is injured, one person may stay with them and one person may go for help.

Under no circumstances is a casualty to be left unattended.
