If you decide that withdrawal is what you want to do then please ensure you do one of the following:
- withdraw at a checkpoint after checking in, ensuring you notify a volunteer that you are stopping, remove your bib and hand it to a volunteer. You will not receive an official or accurate walk time if you withdraw before the end of your selected distance.
- withdrawing between checkpoint is not advised, if you can make it to a checkpoint then please do.
If you cannot make it to the next checkpoint you could, ask the help of other participants, ask someone to inform the next checkpoint of where you are/call them yourself. Stay where you are and Event Support will come to assist you
Please DO NOT just leave the walk without notifying the volunteers. We don't want to have to call Mountain Rescue to look for you, especially if you're already at home!
If you withdraw from the event one of the Highland Hike drivers/support vehicles will be able to take you back to base however there may be a significant wait time depending on availability of the vehicles.
Please be aware that this may take time so you could have to wait. There will be volunteers at every checkpoint to look after participants, so make yourself known to them and they'll take care of you until you leave.
