Transport

 

By CAR – we strongly encourage you to carpool with your team or supporters. Parking is available at the 1000 steps carpark near the registration area.

 

By PUBLIC TRANSPORT – it’s not the easiest. Take a train to Upper Ferntree Gully Station then it’s approximately 1.4km walk to the registration area.

 

Registration opens November 30, 2017 and closes March 30, 2018.

Suggested gear

 

  • Fleece Jumper (synthetic or wool), particularly for those going overnight
  • Rain coat
  • Beanie
  • Thermals
  • Water bottle or Camelbak style bladder
  • Electrolyte or sports drink
  • Muesli bars and other snacks of personal preference (you’ll be burning roughly 500-1000 calories an hour, so you’ll need to keep well fuelled and hydrated! Better to bring more food than not have enough)
  • A change of clothes so you don’t get cold from your sweat when you stop or take a break.
  • Consider bringing a collapsible chair
  • Spare pair of socks
  • Strapping tape
  • Band-Aids and Blister blockers

 

Strongly recommended for Solos and teams of 2 (in addition to the above):

 

  • Hiking Poles particularly for solo participants or teams of 2
  • Headtorch (even if you’re doing it in a team from Saturday morning, you may be going into Saturday night)
