FAQ

There are always questions that you might have, the common ones are answered below.

What will registration look like?

You will register online. About 7 days before event day we will send you an email. You will then need to complete the Competitor Responsibility Statement and Covid Health Screening Questionnaire online. This avoids the queue at number pick up. You must do this otherwise you will not be able to get your race number. If you have missed any email you can find it by going to your my.challenging.events account.

When is the race briefing?

To avoid crowds we will do the race briefing via a webinar on Wednesday evening. You will be emailed a google meets invite. Don't worry if you can't make the briefing, it will be recorded for you to watch when you can. You must watch the briefing. Any emergency updates will be communicated on race day, either via email or as you head into transition. Go to your my.challenging.events account

When will I get my race pack?

Race packs will be made 72 hours before pick up. They will contain your wristband and swim hat. There will be extra registration desks to allow the queue to move quickly. You must know your race number before arrival. We encourage all athletes to collect their pack from Ellingham on Saturday between 3pm and 5pm. For those unable to pick up their pack on Saturday you can collect on Sunday from Ellingham at 5:45am

How will the finish work?

You will get that same finish line feeling but in a slightly different way. Your well-earned medal will be laid on a table ready for you to collect. There will be a sealed container of water for you and a sealed banana. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has ruined our usual amazing finish line spread! Then you are encouraged to leave the finish area quickly. You are able to recover outside this area where there is more space. Again please respect the social distancing rules.

Can we have spectators?

Yes, but please follow the socially distancing rules

Will I be able to get a coffee/food?
