Race Number Distribution

100km & 65km

To be issued your race number for the Ultra-trail Cape Town 100km and 65km races, runners will have to in person present themselves with a Photo ID and all mandatory equipment which will be checked at registration. Without these items a race number will not be issued.


Runners for the 20km race do not need to bring Mandatory Gear to registration. You will be issued your race number by showing a photo ID. Someone can collect on your behalf- they will need to bring a copy of your PhotoID.


If any Mandatory Gear is not carried during or at the finish a time penalty of 15 minutes per item will be imposed. There will be random checks en-route and at the finish.  

Mandatory Gear will be available for purchase at regular retail prices during registation.
