Lists explained

What exactly is the Priority List?

The priority lists for the Otter African Trail Run is for persons wishing to increase their chances of obtaining an entry for these events by registering on these lists and thereby being afforded the opportunity to enter before online entries open to the public but does not guarantee obtaining an entry. Registration on the Priority List costs R250 which will be donated to the event nominated charity. Priority List entries are done online and are treated on a first-come basis. Persons registered on the Priority List that are not successful in obtaining an online entry will automatically be transferred onto the waiting list

Waiting List

Persons unsuccessful in obtaining an entry online may register on the waiting list that will open as soon as the entries are sold out. Registration on the waiting list costs R190 which will be donated to the event nominated charities. Once a month (dependent on cancellations) the Waiting List members will be invited to enter the Otter African Trail Run along with all other waiting list ticket holders to purchase an entry on a first come basis. This means that every person on the waiting list will experience a fair chance to snatch an entry, rather than a first in, first out process. The faster you purchase an available entry on the day, the higher your chances. Members unsuccessful on entering will be kept on the Waiting List for future openings.
