The Cape Pioneer Trek offers a full medical service at each stage location. Travelling medical personnel, including a race doctor and paramedics will also be available en-route to handle emergencies. Serious cases will be transferred to any of the local hospitals that offer a more comprehensive service.
Basic medical services are free, but treatment of recurring injuries or pre-existing chronic conditions will be for the rider’s account. Supplies for daily strapping will be available at a cost to the rider. Please remember to carry the details of your medical insurance in case of hospitalisation.
Please bring your personal medication as prescribed by your doctor. We are riding through areas with lots of honey bees, so come prepared! Also carry sunblock with a sun protection factor of at least 20 SPF.
