Tog bags are stored in the Tog Bag Facility at the bag owner's risk.
Need to have your tog bag transported to the finish field while you run? A free Tog Bag Facility will be available on Race Day in the road above the UCT finish fields. The facility will be clearly signposted for easy location.
Simply bring your clearly labeled tog bag to one of the Tog Bag Trucks that will be available at:
the start in Dean Street for the Half Marathon
outside the Great Westerford Building for the Ultra Marathon.
Please attach the label provided at the Tog Bag Truck to your tog bag, and ensure that you keep the opposing label safe while you run. You will need the matching label to claim your bag.
Every care will be
taken to ensure that the bags are safeguarded. However, please don't leave expensive or valuable items in these bags as the organisers cannot accept responsibility for any losses.
Parking at UCT and near the start is limited. Runners are advised to share lifts to the start and to be dropped off within walking distance. Some of the schools near the start will provide parking. The "Jammie Shuttle" bus service will take runners back to the parking areas at the start free of charge. These will leave from 10:00 onwards from the UCT Indoor Sports Centre.
