Why do I need a SAS time board or SAS arm band?
SASeeding time boards and arm bands are needed to place you in the correct batch according to previous race’s data. This will avoid trail jams, due to athletes not in correct batches.
Why should we bring our time boards or arm bands at registration?
We need to check if the timing chip is still fully functional.
What are the costs of a SAS time board or arm band?
The board or arm band can be bought online through Jumpertrax when you enter. Alternatively, available at registration venues at a cost of R60. If you’ve bought a timing device online, you will be able to collect at registration venues.
