Seconding for 56km and 21km
The NO MOBILE SECONDING rule will be strictly enforced. No seconds may drive, cycle or run alongside any athlete on the route. The STAND AND HAND rule, whereby a runner's seconds may stand at any refreshment station on the route and hand refreshments to their athlete while they remain stationary, will apply. No seconds may travel on the route.
The race referees will deal with any transgression of this rule and the penalty may include disqualification after a warning.
Details for the following year will be officially launched in September 2017.
