If you fit the criteria you will be sent a link to the official entry form and the sponsorship form. Entry deadline: 29th January 2021 (including completed form plus physical funds for min. pledge)

Note places are limited so to avoid disappointment please get in touch ASAP.

When do entries close?

Entries officially close on Friday 29th January 2021, however, due to COVID social distancing safety measures and such a high interest in the 2021 event, the 10to4 Organising Committee has made the (very difficult) decision to cap entries this year. There are still a few remaining spots but we anticipate that these will be filled fast. For more information please visit the Register Now page.

What is the cancellation policy?

This can be found here - 2021 Cancellation Policy

If when you submitted your entry you received an email with a registration number (4 digit number starting in #3) then your entry has been received and once payment has been reconciled will be processed. Please email eventmanager@10to4.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 (eventmanager@10to4.org) or call us (+254 740 967 679).

Is there accommodation available at Borana Race Village?

Sadly this year due to the Covid pandemic there will be no camping on offer at Borana Race Village. Competitors are therefore asked to find their own accommodation. We are doing what we can to help share options and will keep the Accommodation page as updated as possible.

Are you offering the bike drop service in 2021?

Sadly we are not offering this service at the 2021 event. What this does mean is that all competitors will need to make their own transport plans to and from the Start/Finish. For more details on where these are please visit the Directions page. We will update this with a Vehicle map closer to the event too. 

When and where is onsite registration?

For the first time in 2021, pre-event registration is available for ALL EVENTS and is GREATLY encouraged. Come during any of the times detailed below to register yourself (and your family) and collect your pre-allocated bike tag, 10to4 t-shirt and seedling. As always there will be onsite pre-race registration but we really want to reduce queues to help with socially distancing so please assist us with this by coming and registering early.

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 a couple of 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?

As we've communicated previously the set up at Borana Race Village will be considerably smaller than in years' past. That being said we know that there will be hungry riders and drivers that will need feeding and watering before hitting the road. As such the following amenities will be available:

  1. On Friday & Saturday Browns Cheese will be onsite serving Pizza, Toasties, Delia’s Ice Cream and Pitta Wraps.
  2. You may spot Dormans Coffee up at the Day 2 START line but they can also be found down at Borana Race Village on Saturday helping with your 'drivers' caffeine fixes.
  3. Carol from Carols Café will also be set up on Saturday with drinks and refreshments and some tasty food options.

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 temperatures will be taken, masks are to be worn and seating will be very limited so as to avoid crowding.

What will be on offer refreshments wise at the Mini 10to4 @ the Timau Sports Club on Sunday 14th February?

At the MINI 10to4, Dormans will be there selling Coffee and Browns will be selling their delicious ice cream.
