The route is designed in such a way that there are access roads to most parts of the track. There is very little chance that if you have a problem you will need to sleep out in the mountains. We also have a helicopter for the event sponsored by SEASONS OF AFRICA.
The emergency number will be provided at registration.
FIRST AID KIT
Please insure you have a basic medical kit and sun block. Further medical assistance will be available during the event. Although medics are available they aren't a dispensary of plasters and pain killers.
The weather is unpredictable (20-35 degrees Celsius) so please make sure you cater for wet, hot and cold temperatures.
WATER IN STREAMS AND RIVERS
It is strongly recommended that one does not drink the water from any of the rivers or streams which you will be crossing, as clean as they may seem. Clean drinking water will be provided at the check points.
Evacuation plans will be in place to evacuate competitors from remote areas should this be necessary. A helicopter is on standby for any emergency. It is important that you have your own medical cover as the organisers will not be held responsible for any medical costs incurred during participation of the IMPI event.
RESPECT TO LANDOWNERS AND COMMUNITIES
Competitors need to respect the fact that without the support of the various landowners and local communities, this event would not be possible. Please show your appreciation for this.
