Medical Information

Medical Health Insurance

Please note; being very fit and healthy is critical to you safely attempting to complete the Salt Pans Ultra Marathon. To ensure your safety and provide top medical care, we require that you share all pertinent medical information, including pre-existing conditions, medications, allergies and so on. We might also request a medical certificate and may conduct on-site medical assessments. Your safety is our top priority.

Any undisclosed medical conditions cannot be held against the organizers for any associated risks or consequences.

We recommend runners consider ITRA International Running Insurance if they are not covered by their current medical or travel insurance to run in an international ultra trail event.

Medical Insurance

International runners must have medical insurance that covers international ultra running to compete in the SPU.
Batswana runners are covered by Government healthcare so don’t require private medical insurance but it is strongly recommended.
