There will be no registration, just collection of tracker 20 minutes before your race start time
Included in your race entry is a Tracker. A tracker will give out your location at any time online. A huge bonus for safety reasons and also handy for your crew (if you have one) to detect where you are on the route and when to 'brew up' ready for your arrival.
The Trackers will be available for collection at the Hardmoors 110 race registration (your name will be associated to an individual tracker) It will be attached to your race vest for you. (If you lose a tracker you will be charged for a replacement tracker.) A couple of days before the event I will email out a link to the tracker (plus it will be available on the Hardmoors Website) so you can pass the link onto friends/family/ Facebook etc, so people can watch your progress throughout the event.
