Note that on Day 2 the three events (2, 3 & 4) are only 30mins apart, with each event being less than 8km this should allow plenty of time to finish one event and get to the next one.  Important to note that while you are in one event you will get a notification on your screen (image 1 below) or on your companion app (image 2 below) about your upcoming next event.  DO NOT CLICK ‘JOIN EVENT’ until you have finished the one you are currently in!  If for some reason (technical mechanical?) you will take longer than 30mins to finish one of the Day 2 events, then either finish that event and forgo the next one, or exit the current event and join the next one.
