What health and safety precautions should I follow?

This list is only a guide. It is your responsibility to take the appropriate health and safety measures during the attempt of a challenge.

You should consult a physician before you begin any strenuous exercise program, such as the one described on this website, especially if you have or suspect that you may have heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or any other adverse medical conditions. If you feel faint or dizzy at any time while performing any challenges or exercise, stop immediately and seek medical evaluation.  

  1. Plan your route - On running challenges, we strongly recommend planning your route with online running route planners. This leaves out the guesswork, allowing you to know the distance and elevation before you embark on the challenge.
  2. Let others know - When performing any challenge, we strongly recommend you let a friend or family member know what you are doing and where and when you are doing it and what time you are expected to return incase you face any difficulty.
  3. Mobile Phone - We strongly advice that you carry with you a fully charged mobile phone and back up battery if possible.
  4. Weather - Keep an eye on the weather forecast.
