Yes, you can join two events provided you are registered in both events you wish to join. This means paying 2 (two) registration fees and getting 2 (two) race kits.

Can I still register during the event day?

No. We will be using timing chips for Cross Country, Downhill, and Duathlon which will be programmed based on your registration details. Race Kits for the other events are also prepared prior to the event. This also allows each participant to get their preferred shirt sizes.
