For the Sydney event in 2018 we have VERY strict limitations on the site. ONLY 100 PARTICIPANTS are permitted in total so please do not wait to register your teams. We also will not have Solo entries available – this is due to strict time restrictions on the site. Start time will be 7am and teams must finish by 5pm. Please keep this in mind when registering your teams – a team of 2 may struggle to complete this elevation/distance in 10 hours.

TEAMS

START from 7am Saturday       CUT-OFF by 5pm Saturday

 

*Please note this is not a relay. Team members can walk/run the track concurrently. If you have a large team (more than 6 participants) we encourage you to start later in the day, to ease congestion on the track, however team members can also stagger their starts.

Transport

 

By CAR – we strongly encourage you to carpool with your team or supporters. Parking is available on John Oxley Drive near the registration area, if this parking fills up there is also space in the surrounding streets. As this is a residential area we ask that you are considerate in your parking (ie no parking across driveways!).

 

By PUBLIC TRANSPORT – take bus number 281 from Chatswood Railway Station to Maitland Reserve on Prahran Ave, approximately 200m from the registration area.

 

By TAXI – from the city takes around 35-45 minutes.

 

Registration opens November 30, 2017 and closes April 6, 2018.

Suggested gear

 

  • Fleece Jumper (synthetic or wool)
  • 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 smaller teams (in addition to the above):
