While there is no secure baggage drop at the event, the looped-nature of the course means entrants are free to leave their bags at the start/finish as there will always be someone around.
Virtually all runners wear road shoes at the event as the route takes runners along the lake paths which are mostly wide, hard gravel bike/walking surfaces. There are some small short concrete parts as well as a few metres of grass/mud trail.
There will be an area for entrants to leave their own nutrition, but please note no energy gels or drinks will be provided by the organiser so it is up to the entrant to bring their own.
