What is the maximum amount I can pay by MPESA?

If your payment exceeds Ksh. 70,000 we recommend that you check out via Bank Transfer.

Once your transaction through MPESA is complete and we have approved it back-end you will receive a final email confirming that your place has been secured.

What should I indicate as my account number when paying via MPESA?

Your account number will be auto-generated by the system, when you select payment via MPESA.

I’ve selected the bank transfer option, by when should I have made my payment?

In order to secure your spot, proof of your payment should be sent to 10to4@MountKenyaTrust.org ASAP. Once we have confirmed payment back-end you will receive a final email saying that your spot has been secured.

How will I know that my application has gone through?

If you have already registered for one of the 10to4 Races but have not yet received a final confirmation email, please bear with us.  Payments and entries are being processed as quickly as possible and we will get back to you soon.

If when you submitted your entry you received an email with a registration number (4 digit number starting in #3) this means your entry has been received and once payment has been reconciled will be processed.  Please email us at 10to4@MountKenyaTrust.org if you are unsure.

Must I purchase AMREF medical insurance in order to participate?

No, but we highly recommend that you do if you do not have any prior medical or evacuation insurance cover.  Without prior cover, emergency medical evacuation can cost over $4000, which must be paid BEFORE treatment or flight.  In an emergency, if there are issues with payment, this can be life threatening.  You can purchase AMREF medical evacuation cover for the event at just 1,600 Ksh, through the online registration form.

Am I required to fundraise?

There is no minimum fundraising requirement for participants, but we highly encourage all our participants to fundraise for the causes that the 10to4 supports.  Please visit the Fundraising page on the 10to4 website for further details.

I’d like to speak to someone from the 10to4 Team

If you have any questions about your entry or the event please don’t hesitate to email us (10to4@MountKenyaTrust.org) including your phone number and someone will call you back as soon as possible.

Is there accommodation available at Borana Race Village?

Borana Race Village will once again be open for camping in 2022.  Full details will be published soon on the Borana Race Village page, and you can book camping on the main registration form.

Are you offering the bike drop service?

A bike drop service on Friday evening, along with competitor transport to the START line on Day 2 will be offered from Borana Race Village at a cost of KSh4,500 per rider.  Full details can be found on the BIKE DROP page. 

Please note if you don’t use our Bike Drop service you will need to find your own way up to the START line at 10,000ft.  If necessary you can add this service at a later date, though places are limited.

When and where is onsite registration?

As in 2021, we will be offering pre-event registration for ALL EVENTS and would GREATLY encourage you to take advantage of this if you can and avoid the queues!  Details of times and locations will be published nearer the time, but you can come along at your convenience to register yourself (and your family) and collect your pre-allocated bike tag, 10to4 t-shirt and other goodies.  As always there will be onsite pre-race registration (details to follow), but we really want to reduce queues to help with socially distancing so please assist us with this by registering early.  You can speed up the process even more if you complete and submit your Medical Form and Waiver Form online before you come along.

Can family members access Borana Race Village and do they have to pay for entry?

Yes, family members will be able to access Borana Race Village (BRV) on the Friday and Saturday to assist with drop off/pick up and they will not have to pay for entry.  Down at the Race Village, there will be options to purchase drinks and refreshments and the usual Covid protocols and social distancing measures will be in place. 

Will there be food/drinks available at the Saturday Start Line and down on Borana Race Village?

There will be a variety of refreshments and activities on offer at Borana Race Village - full details given nearer the time.

Drinking-Water stations, toilets and handwashing facilities will also all be available at BRV along with ample parking. It will be a Covid Control Area so everyone entering must provide evidence of vaccination, temperatures will be taken, masks are to be worn and seating will be very limited so as to avoid crowding.
