Event day logistics
Registration on Friday the 6th is from 7pm - 11pm and opens again on Saturday the 7th from 5am - 5:45am. Registration will close at 5:45am sharp for a 6am START and it is your job to be there in time.
You must register at Race HQ where you will receive your route map, race number, tracker and any other information you may need.
You will also need to bring your race vest, pack or bumbag so that we can attach your GPS tracker.
You will need to bring a form of photo ID to take part. This can be a photo-card driving licence, passport or any other identification that has your photo on it (no ID, no start).
We know how important it can be to have supporters out on the course to cheer you on. There will be limited parking at the aid stations and we ask that your supporters find parking elsewhere to avoid any hold-ups. There are numerous locations along the route that would be great spots to spectate, especially any of the 5 summits that THE LAP passes over. Outside help, such as additional bottles, jelly babies or hugs are permitted but competitors must carry their own kit throughout and pacers are not permitted in the interests of fairness.
