All race participants need to be a minimum of 15 years of age. Anyone under 18 years of age will need to have a guardian or parent sign a waiver for participation. The event is open to both male and females. Children are allowed at the event, we’ll have heaps of exciting things for the kids to do and see and the hub to keep them occupied and having fun too.

What should I bring?

We strongly recommend long pants, or leggings and long socks to make your course comfortable and provide protection. Running or hiking shoes are sufficient to attempt the course. Keep clothing light, as you are guaranteed to warm up during the course. Water bladders are a good way to keep rehydrated. It is advised you bring a change of clothes and a towel.
Go Pro's or similar devices may be worn, however, we take no responsibility if they are lost during your course. We advise you to secure the device during water or mud obstacles.
