On the Course
Its a touch free event - please do not touch the controls, not even with your eTag. Just hover your wrist above the control and check that the eTag flashes. Be aware of other competitors and other users. Keep your distance at all times. Give way at controls, be patient.
Finish and Download
There is a taped route from the last control to the finish. After punching at the Finish there is a 150m walk to Download. There's no need to rush, just gather your thoughts, think "social distance" and get your breath back. When you get to Download, sanitize your hands, remove your tag from your wrist and hold it near the yellow dongle by the splits printer. Take your splits print and drop your tag and strap in the crate. Make your way back to your car. Have a safe journey home.
