Unfortunately the Big Jim boxes are no longer provided for this event. Zsports will ensure there is a kit tray in transition below your race number. Please note this tray is to remain in transition at all times and remains the property of Zsports.

Unfortunately, due to the administrative and logistical costs of an event of this nature, we have a NO REFUND or carry forward policy for our events. However, we have introduced the ability to transfer your entry at any stage before race weekend at a cost of just R100. It is the withdrawing athlete's responsibility to find a suitable replacement for their entry and such replacement is required to register online in the applicable race category in order to be eligible for entry. Zsports will not entertain or respond to any emails requesting a refund or carry forward of an entry.
