  • Each runner will receive a cap/peak with the Strandloper logo on it.
  • There are no other briefings taking place.
  • You will need to be at the start, on the beach at De Hoek and ready to be set off at 6h30.
  • Where is De Hoek? If you face the beach from Noordhoek Beach car park, it is the right side of the beach where the rocks are visible. You will see other runners gathering there. [Remember social distancing and wear your mask when you wait to be set off.
  • Do not attempt to run or enter, if you've been diagnosed with Covid. In fact, do not enter if you've been ill in the last 10 days.
  • There are no water tables. Please be self sufficient - even at the finish.
  • The Noordhoek Farm Village will be open by the time you get back - you can buy breakfast, coffee etc there and there is plenty of parking.
  • Results will be published online for each group as well as the overall results of the 4 different dates combined.
  • Entries close once each limit tickets are sold or 2 days before each run takes place - whichever happens first.
  • Male/Female category only. Again, this is to enable automatic closure of the entry system when the limits are reached. Apologies for that but we are dealing with unusual challenges - as you are aware, I'm sure.
  • There will be no prize-giving, just lekker vibes with lekker people!
