RUNNING FOR CHARITY

The Clarens Village Conservancy relies on member contributions and fundraising events for income, therefore while both placement and spot prizes will be given away at the prizegiving, we have chosen not to offer monetary prizes this year as we are aiming to raise as much as we can for the Conservancy. 

We also know that many of you love a race medal, but some of you could do without another one - therefore we have decided to give you the choice - runners who enter online are welcome to request a finishers medal/prize at checkout or you can donate the race medal fee back to the Conservancy. 

SUBSTITUTIONS, CANCELLATIONS & UPGRADING/DOWNGRADING

  • Race substitutions can be done up until the close of online entries but only within the same distance category. 

  • Cancellations and refunds are possible but only up until the close of online entries. 

  • Upgrading or downgrading your chosen race distance is possible but only up until the close of online entries. A price increase will apply for runners looking to upgrade their distance whereas a downgrade will be done free of charge, however, there is no refund/cash back option when downgrading.

SUPER IMPORTANT INFO

  • PLEASE NOTE: While there will be water points along the route, due to the challenging terrain, a headlamp, a hydration pack, extra nutrition, a charged cellphone and a GPX device are compulsory for runners doing the 50km. Similarly, a hydration pack, extra nutrition and a charged cellphone are compulsory on the  35km route. This will be checked at the start line on the morning of the race. 21km runners are also strongly encouraged to take a hydration pack and extra nutrition with them however this is not a mandatory requirement. 

  • The minimum age limit is 12 years for the 10km, 16 years for the 21km, 18 years for the 35km and 21 years for the 50km.

  • While walking is permitted on all race routes, we strongly recommend that only serious runners enter the 35km and the 50km routes due to the tough terrain and elevation gains. Serious walkers will be permitted on the 21km route - just please check that the cut-off times are realistic for you given the terrain and elevation gains. 

  • Unfortunately, we do not allow dogs at this event.

  • Late entries will be accepted after online entries have closed (at Friday registration and on the morning of the run), however, there will be an increase in race fees that are not purchased online and late entrants will not receive a finishers medal/prize.
