“I loved the time-out zones and to not be penalised; they allowed for a few stretches without feeling the need to rush back on the bike after the refuel, and also for more camaraderie chatting to others when normally it would just be eat drink pee go! I stopped for about 10min at each food station and gorged on watermelon – best thing to have there!” – Clemence, 2022 GOGG Participant


Competitor briefings will be held at the START LINE for EACH race, approximately 10 minutes prior to Race Start times listed above.
