Time cut-offs apply on all the Recce Mission routes, as well as on the Jammie routes. Any Recce Mission mountain biker or trail runner who do not make any of the time cut-offs on the Recce Mission routes has failed the mission and will automatically join the Jammie brigade. Any mountain biker or trail runner who do not to make the time cut-offs on the Jammie routes has failed the mission and will be RTU (Return-To-Unit).
Should some team members make the distance within the Mission cut-off time limit while the rest fall just outside the limit (still complying to the rules) – then only those making it within the limit will qualify for a uniquely numbered Recce Mission dogtag. The team will be disqualified and the members that did not make the cut-off time will receive a Jammie dogtag.
