The 100 Miler starts at night and only elite runners are likely to finish before nightfall on the 23rd of September. It is compulsory to carry a headlamp or torch through night sections. Depending on where runners lie in the field, they will get to experience different parts of the Karkloof at night and day. All runners should “turn” before dark on 21 September 2017. Reflector markers will be used across the course.
