Additional Notes

GPS devices may be carried with you to record your route for post-race analysis. GPS enabled devices should not be used for any navigational purpose or to view your position during the race (except in case of an emergency). If you have a smart phone, it's a good idea to download and install the OS Locate app which can be used in an emergency to quickly pinpoint your exact location, enabling us and the emergency services to efficiently find and reach you.
