Important to know

We have a list of mandatory items because, for safety reasons, it’s vital you have your own gear. But, equipment may be shared with your fellow trekkers if you’re trekking in a group. However, there is a catch: you can’t reach checkpoints and the finish more than 15 minutes apart from each other, othervise you will get a time penalty. The time penalty is even applicable if you’re travelling in a group and sharing gear but group members reach checkpoints of the finish more than 15 minutes apart.


Items that may be shared between participants:
• Tent
• Stove and fuel
• Magnetic compass
• First aid kit


A lack of mandatory equipment will result in a 24-hour time penalty for each missing item. You should be able, if asked, to show all your mandatory equipment at any time. If you can’t do this, you’ll receive the maximum time penalty of 15×24 hours. So please, come prepared.
