    Runners only require passports if they are staying overnight at the top and they will then need to go through the South African and Lesotho Border passport control.

    During the race only ATHLETES and OFFICIALS will be given access via the SA Border Control.

    Should you wish to visit Sani Top, you will need to carry your passport and you will need to be processed through South Africa and Lesotho Border Controls. You may be arrested for illegal entry should you cross through the field and fences.

    NOTE: No vehicles will be permitted on the route unless authorised to transport runners. Please adhere to this rule so as to avoid disqualification



    Sani Stagger takes place in the Maloti Drakensberg World Heritage Site.

    We urge all runners to empty cups etc. in the refuse bins provided throughout the route. This is a very serious matter.
