All entrants must carry a water bottle or pack and finish with it. Ultra runners must complete a medical form when entering the race. Should there be any changes to your medical history between your entry and start time please inform the people at registration so they can update your record for our Medical Staff. Your weight will be written on your Race Number. Race Number and your weight will be checked when arriving at checkpoints. PLEASE WEAR YOUR RACE NUMBER ON THE FRONT to make it easier for recorders at the checkpoints and the finish.
1. COURSE MARKING:
a) White flagging tape in trees and bushes.
b) Red arrows which will indicate which checkpoint you are heading for.
c) White arrows on the ground OR lines across track to indicate not to cross.
STAY ALERT for these markings at all times particularly at intersections. If you have run for about 10 minutes and have not seen any of these markings you should backtrack. White lines may be placed right across track where there are critical turns. Do not cross these lines.
2. Do not LITTER the course. Anything taken from a checkpoint that is not edible should be placed in the rubbish receptacle at the next checkpoint. In case of a toilet emergency runners should carry some biodegradable toilet paper and depart the track and bury the human waste.
3. Competitors do not have the right of way over any traffic you may encounter while crossing or following gazetted roads. Some Forestry or Parks and Wildlife tracks and roads will be closed using signs but there may be trail bike riders or 4WD vehicles which will ignore these. If you hear them coming, get out of the road. The Police permit requires competitors to keep to the left hand side of the road when possible which means you run with the traffic on all roads.
4. There are no spectators allowed on course but can reach Checkpoint 3 via Robinson Rd. No pets are allowed in a National Park so don’t bring them.
5. It is the responsibility of each runner to ensure they have their number is crossed off at each checkpoint. Failure to be registered as passing through a checkpoint may mean you are ineligible for awards. Report to the timekeeper before you leave the checkpoint.
6. It is important you know the order of the checkpoints (write them on your race number if you cannot remember them). Normally the red arrows taped to trees will have a number on them indicating towards which checkpoint you are heading.
7. Ultra entrants may have DROP BAGS taken to some checkpoints ( see Race Information ). Ensure the bags are clearly marked with your NAME, Race Number and Checkpoint Number. A permanent marker will be available to put your number on after it is assigned.
8. Remember to be polite and courteous to checkpoint staff as these volunteers are out there for considerable time for your benefit.
9. AT THE FINISH
BBQ. Entrants will be given a BBQ ticket when they sign in. Any friends or family who are not competing will need to purchase their food (about $13) unless they are volunteering to help out in a significant manner. You should have pre ordered extra BBQ tickets on entry.
i. Random Draw prizes will be place on a board near the finish. Check for your name.
ii. Placegetters names will be placed on a board as soon as available and they can collect their Trophy if they are not staying for presentations.
10. First Aid – There will be a FIRST AID kit at each checkpoint and there will be a Sports Trainers in attendance along the course.
