6. Equipment Inspection

7. Proceed to a Race Brief session at the Peak Centre



Prior to the race you will have to complete a mandatory equipment check. This applies to all athletes. This may be a full equipment inspection.

The equipment inspection can be performed by a member of staff once you have been officially registered. The equipment does not have to be packed in to your race bag for the inspection. It can be placed in something more convenient such as a small holdall or box to speed this procedure up. As long as the requested items are present you will pass.

If you fail the inspection there are very few opportunities to rectify mistakes. You are responsible for bringing the requested items. The most common problems are with the SLEEPING BAGS & STOVES.

Please see the Equipment section for notes and guidance. If after reading this, you are unsure if an item of compulsory kit passes you can email lindley@thespinerace.com for further clarification.
