Getting Prepared

Before Event Day

31st Jan 2021 – Entries open

Entries will go on sale at 31st Jan 10AM Brisbane time.

In previous years we have seen a flurry of sales as entries open and have sold out events on the same day as tickets are open. To avoid disappointment we recommend entering soon after tickets are released as we have fixed participants limits.

2nd July 2021 – Confirm Bib Name & details

By the 2nd July 2021, we need you to have logged back in to your registration account via the Enter Now page, to confirm your important details are correct.

Please confirm your bib nickname, emergency contact details and medical summary are complete and correct.

If you’ve entered before this date, we’ll print your name / nickname on the front on your bib (max 12 characters). On the back, we’ll also print your emergency details, in case you become incapacitated, so it is very important that these are accurate.

If you enter after this date, your bib will not be personalised and there will be space on the back of your bib to write in your emergency details. If you transfer an entry after this date, we will do our best to supply you with a blank bib, otherwise you may have to cross out and replace some details.

10th July 2021 – Compulsory Competitor Briefing

To ensure all participants know what’s happening when, how to navigate around the course and what the expect when you’re out there, please read the participant documents. You MUST read the participant guide before collecting your bib. This will be supplemented with a short pre-race briefing before the start of each event but the bulk of the detail is in the participant guide.

You can find the participant guide on our Important Documents page.  You shouldn’t be able to miss it but remember, we NEED you to check this out. We know none of you will be coming to us on race day with a question that we have answered in the participant guide 😉  

16th July 2021 – Entries & Transfers Close

Entries

If you want to run, you’ll need to get your entry in by the 16th July 2021. If tickets haven’t sold out prior, this is the very last day to enter. Please note, if entering after the 2nd July 2021 you won’t get a personalised bib.

If you find yourself pining for a ticket after this date, there really is nothing we can do for you. Sorry to say, you’ll have to watch on the sidelines but that might be fun.. in its own way. Our advice though, don’t get FOMO – ENTER NOW!

Transfers

This is also the last day we will be able to transfer tickets from one participant to another. 

To make sure this gets processed before the cut off, please follow the instructions here as early as possible as there are a few steps involved in performing transfers. 

17th July 2021 – OPTIONAL Gear Checks Close

Okay, lets start with these points:

  1. Carrying all mandatory gear on race day is NOT OPTIONAL
  2. Gear checks prior to event ARE OPTIONAL
  3. EVERYONE will be asked to produce at least one random piece of gear, somewhere around the course. If you don’t have the required piece of gear, or the item you do have fails to meet the minimum requirements, you will NOT BE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE until you have somehow acquired that piece of gear. Don’t ruin your race for small weight savings – everyone is in the same boat so it’s an even playing field.

We don’t require you to visit The Trail Co. to do a gear check (but we’d love to see you any time you want to say hi). Of course, if you’re unsure if your gear will meet requirements, The Trail Co. team are more than happy to check your gear and offer tips. If you can’t make it into The Trail Co.m we may be able to check your gear with lots of great pictures, but we can’t guarantee this.

As a guide, if you know your gear meets Ultra-Trail Australia’s standards, it should be good for The Guzzler too. While our list is different to theirs, we ask that each individual piece of gear lives up to the same requirements as the UTA.

Weather-dependent gear

You may have noted, some gear will only be mandatory in certain predicted race day conditions. We’ll send an email midday 24th July confirming if you will or will not need this gear. We recognise that this will be too late to go out and by any extra items needed so please have these ready in reserve. Why can’t we commit now? We think you would rather run with the lightest pack possible and want to keep you safe. And, have you ever tried pinning a weatherman down to a prediction? 

See full Mandatory Gear list here.

17th – 23rd July 2021 – Bib Collection

You’ll need to collect your race bib BEFORE race day. There will be no race-day bib collection.

Bibs will be available for collection from The Trail Co. in Bardon (a short drive from the start/finish precinct and THE Brisbane shop for everything ultra trail) for the week leading up to the event. 

When collecting your bib, you will be asked to sign a form to confirm that you have watched / read the mandatory Compulsory Competitor Briefing and understand its contents.

If you have not yet collected your event shirt, you will also be supplied with this at bib collection.

In addition to in-store pickup we also offered express postage for race bibs at registration. If you opted for this option you will need to make sure you are at the selected delivery address to receive delivery. You MUST have a race number to compete in The Guzzler.
