Thank you for entering the Glass House 100 Trail event. Please note the following points. This document is targeted at the 100mile and 100km competitors. All competitors should read this as there are sections that are relevant to the shorter events as well.
a) Registration –Will be at Beerburrum State School on Friday evening (5-7pm) or Saturday morning (4.00-4.45am for 100ml) & (6.45 – 7.45am for 100km) in an upstairs classroom. It is recommended to do Friday evening registration especially if crew is involved and if camping at the venue. This is more informal this year as there will not be a Friday night dinner.
b) Supplies –There are various townships crew will travel through on their journey to keep up with their runner. I list some, but not all.
Black Squirrel Coffee Bar – across the road from the School.
Glasshouse 24 hr Service station – Fuel and take away.
Glasshouse Township –Everything you need, Supermarket, Chemist etc. a small detour on the way to checkpoint 7.
Woodford Township –Everything else you need including hotel, many eating places and supermarket open till 7pm. Detour to Woodford from checkpoint 8.
D'Aguilar Township – Pub, Fuel and ice.
c) FOOD at BASE – Tickets for these will be issued on Registration (one per entrant –1 for Sunday brunch or Saturday night if finishing the 52km event). and one for those family or friends paid for on entry. Others can pay at Registration, but it is recommended to pre-pay as extra meals, especially vegetarian, run out quickly.
There will be an overnight canteen facility with hot drinks and some recovery foods for finishers.
d) Camping – An area on the School oval is available for Friday and Saturday camping for runners and crew. Please register first before setting up to pick up your designated spot. There will be spacing between rows to allow your vehicle access. Access will be from a back gate which is located at the rear of the Park next door to the School. Park in the bitumen carparks until you have a numbered spot.
(e) Crew of ultra competitors will only be able to travel on gazetted roads to checkpoints. This should only be done if you are familiar with the area. It is not the task of officials to direct crew. Any runner who is going to have crew should notify the Race Director of Name and Vehicle Registration by September 12. Only official vehicles are allowed on forestry roads. Crew can only give aid at checkpoints after the runner has left the official enclosure. No pets at checkpoints and children must be kept under strict control. No pets are permitted in any National Park and all dogs must be on a leash in all other areas. Note, that regular wild dog baiting occurs regularly in many sections of the course.
Entrants are reminded that only one vehicle is allowed per runner.
The person/s driving this vehicle must fill in the details on the Registration Form for Crew at Beerburrum School on Friday evening (5-7pm) or Saturday morning (Runner/s Number & name; Driver/s Name; Vehicle Registration Number and Mobile Phone Number/s. One vehicle can crew for a number of runners. The driver of that vehicle will then be given a copy of the event permit signed by the Race Director – a map and directions should be downloaded from the website prior to the day.
Drivers of crew vehicles should drive with extreme care on gravel surfaces (less than 40km/hr) as some of these roads are pot holed and runners may use some of them and do not want copious amounts of dust.
Crew are not being catered for re food and fluid at checkpoints so carry your own.
CREW MEETING: Any crew/official vehicles should park in the bays in front of or to the west of the school. Thus, these should be empty once the runners leave for Chpt 4 etc. There will be a compulsory meeting of crew persons at the school after the 100ml/km runners leave at 5.00am and 8.00am. With the number of entrants this year Crew must obey all directions given. Failure to do so could lead to the disqualification of their runner.
f) MEDICAL - The medical aspects will be coordinated by Peter Boardman 0411 151 291, a Sports Trainer, Massage Therapist and Kinesiologist, who has worked in the medical aspects of Glasshouse Trail Runs since 1996.
Medical Form: All entrants have completed a Medical Form as part of their entry procedure.
Weight will be checked before the start when you are in your Running gear and it will be written on your Race Number. Your weight will be checked at Checkpoints Base, 7, 8 & 9. This is mainly a self-check for you but you will be advised to rest and rehydrate if you have lost over 3kg. Please ensure you arrive at least 45 minutes before the start on Saturday morning as all runners undergo a WeightCheck, mandatory Gear check and DROP BAGS have to be placed under the building.
Runners would be advised to carrya compression bandage in case of snake bite; blister and chafing preventatives; salt tablets and a whistle. (Use long blasts on the whistle for being lost and three short ones for medical or another emergency). If you intend carrying a mobile phone with you please ensure the number is recorded when you pick up your Race Number. The Race Directors mobile no is 0481 134 054.
Course Coordinators Charlie Hall 0419 798 778 and Phil Hungerford 0411 704 031.
g) Mandatory Gear –
h) DROP BAGS -
Drop bags are permitted at all checkpoints except 3 and 4. Entrants are advised to make use of drop bags for non-perishable food and fluid, running gear etc. Checkpoints will have Lemon/Lime Endura as the electrolyte. If you prefer another brand, it can be in your drop bag. Checkpoints cannot cater for all food needs. Some may have a better range than others. Soup/ hot drinks will be available for the night checkpoints 3, 4, 8 and 9. Lights and warm gear should be placed in a Drop bag one stop earlier than you think you need them in case you have a dreadful day and running behind schedule.
Please try to limit the size of your drop bags.
Western States suggests the size of a shoe box. Make sure your drop bags are clearly labelled with Surname (top line), Race Number (second line) and the checkpoint number (third line) as illustrated below:
They will be placed under the school at the designated spots in Race Number order. If entrants in the 100ml/km are not REGISTERING on Friday evening (5-7pm) then they should arrive at least an hour prior to the start time if they have drop bags to organise. A person will supervise this and a permanent marking pen will be available. Drop bags will be lined up in Race Number order at the checkpoints. The drop bags will eventually be returned to the same spots under the school beneath the Registration Room. Make sure you collect yours before 11:30am on Sunday, 15th Sept.
There should be hot water available at checkpoints 5, 8 and 9 for those who may wish to have packet soup or noodles in their drop bags.
i) All competitors must carry a water bottle (minimum 500ml) or wear a hydration pack. In the past some competitors have taken the wrong course and travelled greater distances and no cups of water will be available at checkpoints (to minimise litter). Water bottles can be refilled at checkpoints but no plastic cups of water will be available. Failure to start and finish with a water bottle may result in disqualification.
j) Waste Disposal – Each checkpoint will have a rubbish bin. Anything taken from a checkpoint and not ingested must be placed in the bin at the next checkpoint. There may be camping toilets for emergency use by entrants and officials at some checkpoints. There are Public toilets at the Matthew Flinders Park , Mt Beerwah picnic area and the Glasshouse Mts Lookout. Runners would be advised to carry biodegradable toilet paper in case of an emergency stop and depart the track and bury the waste. Do not litter the course.
k) THE COURSE IS MARKED WITH WHITE FLAGGING TAPE IN TREES, RED ARROWS TAPED TO TREES and WHITE ARROWS ON THE GROUND. The red arrows will indicate the checkpoint you are heading for. A white line across a track indicates you should not cross it, there is a right or left turn just before it. BE ALERT for MARKINGS ALWAYS. There will be crossover of some events out on course, so don’t assume all markings are for your event. Write the order of the checkpoints you are visiting on your race bib or arm.
l) In a few areas competitors may have to cross gazettedroads or follow them for a short distance. Care should be taken even though most are roads that have very minimal traffic. Illegal trail bikes are sometimes in the area so if you hear them coming move off the track.
m) Weight CHECKS will be made at designated Checkpoints for the ultra competitors on arrival and final departure.
n) Aid Station – WICEN radio staff will be at several points around the course and will have water available if required. These are not Checkpoints but only in position to record your progress throughout the event.
o) PACERS –
A “Pacer” is defined as a “trail companion” who accompanies a Runner along designated sections of the trail. Pacers are allowed solely as a safety consideration for fatigued Runners in the night-time sections of the event. Pacers should be experienced trail runners in excellent physical shape and conditioned adequately to run long distances over sometimes rough terrain. Most pacing will be done during the dark hours of night and early morning, so Pacers should be warmly dressed and used to running using lights.
p) CUT OFF TIMES:
q) CUT OFF FOR ALL EVENTS is Sunday 11.00am.
Any competitor who it is deemed cannot make the cut off at any checkpoint may be withdrawn and returned to base.
All events finish through the School main front entrance at the end of the finishing chute.
r) POST RACE -
Some runners who don’t have accommodation nearby may need to rest at the school when they have finished, particularly if distressed. Thus ensure you have a mat or stretcher and sleeping bag or blanket at base. Crew should carry old towels and blankets/jackets in case their runner becomes distressed. There will be a shower available at the base, Beerburrum School but for 100 mile/km entrants who have no accommodation nearby only.
Note that the kitchen and Medical tent behind on the oval are for a Recovery zone only for 100ml/km entrants. You will be asked to leave if you spend too much time there.
s) PRESENTATION CEREMONY- There will be official ceremonies. An earlier edition for shorter events and runners who have to leave early to catch planes etc. and 11.20am for the 100mile and 100km (This may come forward if all runners have finished before cut off time).
Mugs will be collected at the finish after competitors have had their finishing time recorded. Random Draws will be drawn and displayed on a board at the finish.
