Headphones and Earphones
You will be able to use headphones and earphones during the 6 Hour Challenge. Please have the volume low and be aware of others you are sharing the space with.
Cupless Event
In order to reduce their impact on the environment, this organiser's events are all cupless. This means that it is important to please bring your own bottle, cup, mug or "something" to hold liquids as the organiser will only have water available in jugs and water containers.
You can leave them at the aid station in wire baskets. It is useful to label your bottle with your name so it is easily identifiable.
