However, each course has various age and weight restrictions. Since there is some walking and step climbing involved, you should be in good health and decent shape. Small cameras are permitted if they have a strap and can be secured to your gear. GoPro video cameras can usually be accommodated if you bring the helmet strap accessory. Fly!
