What you need to enter registration

Race Tec Chip, ID, Your Race Number, Proof of Vaccination or Negative Rapid Antigen Test

Fully Vaccinated?

To qualify as a fully vaccinated participant you must present proof of your vaccination status by way of your vaccination card or a printed copy thereof together with your ID. You are considered fully vaccinated if you have had 2 doses of the Pfizer vaccine (with the 2nd dose having been received a minimum of 7 days prior to the event) OR you have received 1 dose of the J&J vaccine (at least a minimum of 28 days before the event).

Not Fully Vaccinated?

In line with the guidelines laid down by Cycling South Africa (CSA), participants who are not considered fully vaccinated will need to return a Negative Rapid Antigen Test before they can collect their event number. This test can conveniently be done at our "Call Outs" testing facility which will be on-site at the number collection venues. PRE-BOOKING YOUR TEST SLOT ONLINE IS ADVISABLE. Test slots will be available between 12pm and 6pm on Thursday 10 February at Kenworth Racecourse and 12pm and 6pm on Friday 11 February at Durbanville Racecourse. Each test will be offered at a discounted R200 and can be paid for by card or cash. Limited walk-in will be accepted, and pre-bookings will take preference. Avoid waiting and - Book Now!

On arrival at the number collection venue please proceed to the "Callouts" station to sanitize and check your vaccination status or be tested. Once your vaccination status is confirmed you will receive an armband and proceed to collect your race number. Should you need to be tested it will be done and you will get a result via SMS within 15 minutes. You will need to show your negative result to a "Call Outs" official in order to get an armband and only then proceed to collect your race number.

Please note that no race numbers will be issued without the official armband.

Only participants collecting numbers for themselves, and others, will be allowed in the registration/ number collection area and the wearing of masks is mandatory at all times. We also ask that all participants practice social distancing while in the registration area. Please don't forget to collect your t-shirt if you have purchased one with your entry.
