What is the cancellation policy?

For Race Fees and all extras - i.e. bike drop, camping, AMREF, etc. - this can be found here - 10to4 Cancellation Policy

Why is my entry not being accepted?

This is likely to be due to a technical problem. Please email us at 10to4@MountKenyaTrust.org with a full explanation of the issue and we will try and assist.

What methods of payment can I use and what is the deadline for payment?

Once you have completed online registration, we must receive your payment by noon on Friday 11th February. This is the latest and ideally you should pay within 24 hours of submitting your online registration as payments can take a few days to arrive in our account. Until we receive your race fee, your entry is NOT confirmed so if you leave payment until the last minute and there is some kind of problem, you may be excluded from the event.

What is the maximum amount I can pay by MPESA?

Please note MPESA has a single transaction limit of Ksh. 70,000 and a daily transaction limit of Ksh. 140,000. 

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?

If you choose to pay by M-Pesa, please use your full name and the race category you have entered (eg JOHN SMITH SLIDE) as the account number.  This will enable us to reconcile your payment easily and confirm your entry. 

If you do not do this we may not be able to match your payment to your entry which can cause delays and mean that your entry will not be confirmed in time for you to race.

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 detailing your registration information 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.

Do I need to be vaccinated against Covid-19?

Everyone aged 18 or over who is involved in the 2022 10to4 event MUST be fully vaccinated.  This includes competitors, volunteers, race officials and all visitors to Borana Race Village and the Start Line.  

You must bring a copy of your vaccination certificate to the event and be prepared to show it to race officials when requested.  The Event Management Team reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone not complying with this requirement which is in line with Government policy.

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 sponsor the event, where can I find more information?

Take a look at the sponsorship page or download our sponsor's pack for full details.

Is there accommodation available at Borana Race Village?

Borana Race Village will once again be open for camping in 2022.  Full details can be found on the Borana Race Village page, and you can book camping when you register.

Are you offering the bike drop service?

A bike drop service will be offered on Thursday 17th and Friday 18th at a cost of KSh 4,500 per rider. 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.

Please note, you'll need to find your own way up to the Start point in good time to collect your bike before your race starts. We will set up a WhatsApp group for competitors using the bike drop service so they can arrange lift shares to the Start point in the mornings and after the races to collect vehicles left there.

Full details of times and locations can be found on the BIKE DROP page. 

If necessary you can add this service until 4th February, 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 can be found on our Event Schedule page, 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. (Additional dates/locations may be offered nearer the time so keep an eye on the Schedule page.)

As always there will be onsite pre-race registration (details to follow), but we really want to reduce queues to help with social 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. 

Please note, EVERYONE aged 18 or over entering BRV MUST be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.  All participants and their friends and families entering BRV must be able to provide a copy of their vaccination certificate when requested by Race Officials. The only exception to this would be someone who is simply dropping off a rider/bike, and only if they remain in their vehicle the whole time.

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

There will be a variety of refreshments and activities on offer at Borana Race Village - full details can be found here.

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.

BRV 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.  In addition, anyone entering who is 18 years old or over must be fully vaccinated and able to provide evidence of this when asked.
