2-person relay

The relay course will have a mass start at 6pm. Please arrive early to register your team.
Relay runners will share a single SI Air and pass it between them as the "relay baton" on the changeover.
Teams will need to be registered via the tablet, all teams should be registered by 5.45pm. Please arrive by 5.30pm at the latest to ensure you have time to do this.
If you have an SI Air please bring this for your team, otherwise we will have some spares to borrow. (If any teams have a spare SI Air, it would be good if we could lend the spare one onto another team).  
If you have entered a non-relay course you will be able to change to the relay (it will be fun!). Please email PAPOentries@gmail.com by Monday 27th or talk to registration on the day.
Note that the relay distance will be the same as the Long course. 

Non-relay courses

For anyone not competing in the relay, the normal 3 courses (Beginner, Medium, Long) will be available from 5pm.
