How to be a Phantom...

Step by step instructions:

Step 1: ENTER

  • Enter online via the link on the special stage or direct on Quicket.  There will also be the option of purchasing cool Phantom Rally merch.

Step 2: DOWNLOAD

  • Download the following free app to your smartphone:
  • Receive special stage information sent to you by email from the 25th of the month (or available for download from the 25th). 

    • On your smartphone, download the GPX file and share it to the app (further detailed instructions will be available for this step)
    • View & print (optional) the PDF Rally Book (preview what this looks like here)
    • Load up the GPX file to your own GPS device (optional)

Step 3: RACE

  • Race the special stage as many times as you like within the month the special stage is running. Either use the Rally Book provided and/or follow the tracked route on the app or your own device.

  • During each attempt, track your race using the free app. Your time will start when you cross the start point and finish when you cross the same point. Time before and after will be excluded, so start the tracking on the app at least 1min before you start your attempt.

  • Snap a photo of yourself either before or after each attempt.

  • You are of course welcome to use any other GPS device in parallel to the app, but ONLY a GPX file will be used in the verification process. So if you cannot download and email/Whatsapp a GPX file (or don't know what this is...) then just use the app!

Step 4: VERIFY

  • Attach the GPX file recorded by the app/device and your selfie photo to an email and send to admin@wildrunner.co.za ONLY GPX files will be acceptable for verification.

  • Your start time will be calculated from the GPS timestamp at the point your track crosses the start point, and at the finish when you cross the finish point (close the loop). Time before and after will be excluded.

  • Your last current & verified result will reflect.  The best result from all your attempts will count as your final result and this will be the one listed on the final results.

  • For those of you on Discovery, we will submit your results to Discovery within 5 days of the end of the month.

Step 5: MEDALS & PRIZES

  • Digital medals & certificates will be available once the final stage results have been published.

  • If you complete all 12 special stages you will receive this very cool Dodecahedron medal puzzle.

  • All entrants will be placed into a lucky draw.  The lucky draw will take place by the 5th of the month following the special stage. Lucky draw prizes will be sent directly to you.

  • Overall winners and category cash prizes will be awarded and paid by EFT by the 15th of the month following the special stage.
