FAQs

Is there any entry requirement to RTR III, like points of ranking? 

No. The race is open to anyone who is over 18 years of age - with a sense of adventure. There is no requirement to have completed any other particular event in order to participate in Run The Rann, whichever distance you choose. If you register for either the 161 or 101 km races, we may contact you directly and engage an open and informal discussion about your running experience. We will absolutely not limit the access to those two events to experienced ultra athletes because we have often seen those DNF due to over-confidence when a total newbie would resist, bend but not break and show great dedication and enough mental tenacity to finish within the cut-off timing. Obviously you must be sufficiently trained to undertake the event but again, what does "sufficient" means? It will always be your responsibility to monitor your health and condition during the event and to withdraw from it if you are no longer fit enough to continue. We know that being able to do so requires experience but again, we want to give everyone a chance to participate and enjoy the beauty of our course. It is very tough and demanding with remote sections that will result in slow first aid and rescue response times. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are physically and mentally fit enough to complete the event which may take you up to 46 hours to finish - for the 161 kms race or 28 hours to finish for the 101 kms race.
