You must pay within 48 hours of submitting your entry. If we do not receive your full payment by midnight on 16th February at the very latest, your entry will be cancelled.
Please note MPESA has a single transaction limit of Ksh 150,000 and a daily transaction limit of Ksh 300,000 so unless you're registering for several people this shouldn't be a problem. If your collective payments do exceed the upper limit, we suggest you spread the registrations over a couple of days.
Once you have submitted your entry form and completed the payment you will receive an email confirming your entry. If you go through the process but do not receive a confirmation email and you've checked your Spam box, please contact us at 10to4Registration@MountKenyaTrust.org.
All adults 18+ years old should be vaccinated against Covid-19 before entering the site either as a competitor or spectator.
At time of going to press, there are no Covid restrictions in place relating to public gatherings or events of this sort. However, if that changes we will be obliged to follow Govt. guidance and will inform you of anything that you need to do to comply.
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 a very reasonable rate through the online registration form.
There is no minimum fundraising requirement for participants, but we highly encourage all our participants to fundraise for the causes that the 10to4 supports. We will be publishing materials to help your fundraising efforts over the next few weeks.
Please contact 10to4@MountKenyaTrust.org if you'd like to find out more about our range of sponsorship opportunities.
Borana Race Village will once again be open for camping in 2023. Full details will be published in the next few weeks, and you can book camping when you register.
Bike drop and competitor transfer service was offered for all Day 2 riders. If you signed up for this, you will drop your bike at Event Registration in the afternoon/evening and it will be transported overnight to the Start point ready for the following day's races.
The following day, you'll either need to find your own way up to the Start point in good time to collect your bike before your race starts, or you can book a ride when you register.
Full details can be found on the Bike Drop page.
Rider transport is now fully booked, but you can add Bike Drop until 10th February, though places are limited so you may be disappointed if you leave it until late and all spaces are booked up before then.
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, so 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 keep the queues down 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.
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, we hope, lots of things to keep them entertained while competitors are busy on the mountain!
Dorman's will have their coffee stand up at the Start Line as usual, so you won't have to race without your morning fix. There will also be a toilet somewhere nearby, but no other facilities will be available so please make sure you bring enough water and snacks to get you to the first water stop.
There will be a variety of refreshments and activities on offer at Borana Race Village - full details will be shared as they are confirmed.
Basic shower and toilet facilities will be available at BRV along with ample parking, but NO drinking water except for competitors as they finish their races so please ensure you bring enough for your camping requirements. We would also ask you NOT to wash bikes off using the campsite water supply.
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.
If you need to speak to someone nearer the time, there will be a dedicated number for you to call during normal office hours (9am to 5pm Monday to Friday).
