The whistle has to be attached to a lanyard and be easily reachable. It can be worn around the neck or attached to a waist belt or any other piece of clothing. The whistle cannot be placed inside the backpack.   The minimum content of your first aid kit should be: antiseptic cream or lotion, plasters (ordinary and butterfly), anti-histamine tablets. An emergency blanket can be a life saver in case of injury or hypothermia. Participants have to store the organisers’ emergency numbers in their phone before the race starts. Participants have to install a GPS location app in their phone. Participants are required to be self sufficient, with water stations set up to cater for re-filling of hydration packs or bottles along the entire race course. We will NOT provide any bottles or cups. Participants are strongly advised not to drink any untreated water from the mountain streams. Recommended: Participants are advised to bring at least four sachets of hydration salts in their backpack. Participants are advised to bring ointments or sprays to relieve muscle cramps and pain. Participants are advised to bring insect repellent. Participants are advised to bring a headlamp; not a torch light. When facing adverse weather conditions it might get pretty dark in the jungle. Full Marathon runners will have to run the last stages of the race in the dark. Participants are advised to attach a red flashing light to their backpack which can be switched on when it is dark.
