Yes, participants can stop to have a break, either by pitting in The Pit or at a warming station out on course. It is up to each Gritter to determine when they should take a break, depending on their body’s needs and their race strategy. It might be a solo decision, or the team might have to develop strategy to get the most out of each member throughout the event. It is key to note that participants will only be allowed to enter The Pit after finishing a complete lap. If participants enter The Pit any other time, they will be disqualified. Similarly, there is only one way back out on course. Any other entry to the course will result in a disqualification.
The format of the Enduro allows individuals that enjoy extreme endurance to fulfil their needs! So there will be some men and women who literally do not stop for the full 24-hour period. At the very same time, people who either are not interested in such extreme levels of endurance, or would simply prefer to approach the event with a more relaxed attitude, can do so and enjoy the entire process with a group of friends. You can choose to run through the night, or decide you would prefer to have a sleep and get back into the event come the morning. All options are open. The answers to these questions will form your strategy for the event.
