HOW DO I QUALIFY FOR ENTRY?

You are not required to submit a demonstration of any previous experience with trail and/or ultramarathon running in order to enter The Guzzler Ultra 10km, 21km, 50km & 100km races, however it is expected that all entrants into the 100km event will have completed at least one hilly, trail ultramarathon of 50km or longer before event day.

The Guzzler Ultra races are tough and it is expected that you will have trained on terrain that is similar to that which you will experience during the event you are participating in to prepare for your race. You must ensure that, on race day, you are sufficiently fit and healthy to complete the Event within the official cut-off times.

WHAT DETAILS DO I NEED IN ORDER TO ENTER?

While working through registration, you’ll need to provide personal details and answer a few questions such as:

  • Personal details: eg name, DOB, address etc
  • Nickname: as you’d like it to appear on your bib
  • Country of representation
  • Race day contact details: the phone we’ll be able to call you on during the event. 
  • Emergency contact details: must be someone who is not registered in either the 50km or 100km Event
  • Medical history: providing details about current or recent illnesses, hospital stays and other important information that may help medical professionals provide care to you in an emergency.
  • Event T-Shirt size: check out the sizing chart here
  • Agree to the Release Waiver and Conditions of Entry: these can be read here

You will be able to log back into your EventPlus profile and update some of these details if they change between the time of entry and the Event.

If you have entered another event that uses the EventPlus registration platform, you will already have an athlete profile associated with your email address, making registration even easier!

CAN I ENTER ANOTHER RUNNER?

Yes, you can enter other runners while logged into your Eventplus profile. If you enter a separate email address for them, we’ll endeavor to use that as often as possible but please be aware that you may receive some emails on their behalf. 

If you opt to add refund protection through Booking Protect, please note that this will apply to all entries on the same order. If one of you wants to opt in while the other doesn’t, simply finalise and pay for each entry separately (you can still do this under the same Eventplus profile if preferred).

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Head HERE for all the details.

Can I get my bib shipped out to me?

Yes! When we get closer to July, we’ll contact all active registrants with the option to add bib shipping for $10 and instructions on how to take advantage of that.

If your bib is shipped out and doesn’t reach you in time, we’ll be able to find a spare for you. There’s a chance it may have another runner’s name on it, but you’ll be able to race.

How do I get a finisher’s prize?

Medals will be handed to you as you cross the line. If you’d like to get your hands on one of the bottles or cups available to finishers of the 21km, 50km or 100km events, these will be available for purchase from The Trail Co. tent at the event for $15.

Where can I find your rules and policies?

To ensure we all have good, clean, (dirty), fun, a list of Event Rules is available here.

Other policies such as the Conditions of Entry, Participant Waiver and Code of Conduct can be found on our Important Documents page here.

What is the Mandatory Gear?

A full list of Mandatory Gear can be viewed here.

Event host, The Trail Co., is able to offer to assist with all items on this list.

Do I need to do a Mandatory Gear check?

You do not need to do a Mandatory Gear check prior to the event however you are required to carry all of your mandatory gear for the duration of your run. We will be conducting random gear checks and anyone found to be missing items will be required to replace them before continuing.

Failure to carry a complete set of mandatory gear may not only endanger your own safety but also breaks the race rules. Let’s keep it fair for all and have a great day out together. 

If you are unsure if any of your items meet the minimum standards, event host, The Trail Co., is able to offer advice and suggestions.

WHEN DO ENTRIES CLOSE?

Please head to the event schedule page for this years open and closed dates. 

Please note, pervious years events have sold out well prior to the scheduled ticket close date, some events have sold out the same day as tickets have opened for sale, so if you would like to enter please get in quickly to avoid disappointment.

DO I NEED TRAIL RUNNING SHOES?

The Guzzler really is an event that will test you. All events cover single tracks & fire roads, some flat trails (not much) and some steep accents / descents. We strongly recommend wearing trail running shoes to protect your feet and to provide ample grip on the steep sections. 

Head to The Trail Co. if you would like help with shoe choice. 

CAN I ENTER ON THE DAY?

No. All tickets for The Guzzler Ultra must be purchased prior to event day. Please check the Event Schedule for full details.
