Note: The requirement for team members to be within communication of each other is essential. Do not push on if one team member is suffering from exhaustion or the first signs of exposure. Regroup and seek help from the nearest Marshall, event HQ or another participant, informing them that you require assistance.  Do not go for too long without eating, particularly as you begin to tire. Always wear sufficient clothing and waterproofs to keep warm and dry.  

If in any doubt of your ability to reach the overnight camp before the designated time limit, you should seek help from the nearest Marshall, event HQ or another participant.
