Participants need to assess themselves (and any minors they are responsible for) and determine whether they are fit enough to take part in the Dusk & Dawn Run.

For off-road running it is recommended that you make use of trail running shoes, which provide greater support and traction.

Should you have any difficulty or injury, please request your fellow runners/walkers to notify the next marshal on route so that arrangements can be made to get assistance to you. There will be medics at the start/finish who will attend to emergencies (details will be given at the briefing).

All participants take part in the event at their own risk and indemnify the organisers, sponsors, host and other authorities of any loss or injury, however that loss or injury may be caused, which might occur in preparation for, during or subsequent to the event and in any circumstances in which the organisers, sponsors and local and other authorities might attract a legal liability in respect of such injury or loss.
