This is a technically challenging race, good levels of fitness are required (50 min for 10k) and navigational skills, in particular if the weather is poor or turns poor quickly (as has happened in the past). There are cut off times that will be enforced in the interest of the health and safety of all competitors and marshals. Cut-off at 20 minutes on Ott summit. Athletes will be escorted back to the finish by the designated marshals if continuing raises safety concerns.
