It’s important to stay well hydrated throughout the event, therefore participants are recommended to carry a minimum of 500ml of water with them at all times. A hydration pack, or bottles that fit into a backpack or your bike work well. Water is supplied on the course at all Stage transitions and on both the Trail Run and Road Cycle stages, so it is recommended that competitors drink sufficient water before, during and after the event.


As you will be out on the course for up to 8 hours, it’s a good idea to bring along something to refuel those energy levels. Energy Drinks, Energy Gels, Muesli bars, bananas and dried fruit mixes are all great ideas to keep your energy levels high during the event.

Stage 4 (Road Cycle) will also have snack food at the Drink Stations.
