What Do I Do Once Our Stage is Finished
You will be taken to the finishing line for your team's sector to greet your final runners and then—as a Club group—taken back to the Sector start point.
Can I bring friends and family for support?Of course you can but given the narrowness of some of the paths it may be best to give that support at the beginning and end of your friend or relative’s particular leg .
