Whats New! This year we are trialling a new tracking system during the event- each walker will be required to wear a tracker band which will be placed against a sensor pad at each checkpoint to monitor your progress.
There will be NO paper checkpoint tickets this year, but you MUST ensure checkpoint staff manually record your attendance at each checkpoint too.
We have made a little video for you to help explain the new checkpoint procedures- enjoy!!!!
We will be asking for your feedback on this new system during and after the event.
