As alread mentioned in the news update from November 25th, we will be using SPOT tracking devices again. For the 300 the SPOTs are mandatory. For the 100 miles the SPOTs are optional. You can bring your own SPOT or you rent one from us. If you bring your own there is a charge of EUR 20.00 to include you in the system. If you rent the charge is EUR 50.00 all inclusive.
All 300 milers please let me know by December 20th, what option you want to go for (rental or using your own)? Any 100 milers intersted in using a SPOT, please let me know by the same date. If I don’t hear from you I will be assuming you don’t want/have a SPOT and are not interested in using one.
