Please read the following announcements which contain important updates and changes for the 2022 race weekend.
These may be in addition to the published runner’s guide as we approach race weekend.
We may also communicate important updates via our channels but all important updates for runners will be listed here. We recommend you check back here for any notifications you may have missed, before attending the event.
Due to rain falling on newly flattened trails (that are not packed down hard yet), emergency support access around Lake Manchester may be impacted and so we have had to alter the 100km course for runner safety.
The 100km event will now be 2 x laps of the 50km course.
This course alteration makes only minor impacts to the distance and elevation for the event, but will mean changes to access points to crew and drop bags.
Please familiarise yourself with the modified 100km course details which outlines the new course and checkpoint information, and replace your 100km Maps.Me file with a copy of the 50km course map .kml file. If you don’t delete the 100km map, make sure that it’s switched off so it’s not visible over the top of your new map.
100km runners. Due to the weather in the lead up to the 2022 event & the fairly low temperatures expected on the event evening, participants are REQUIRED to carry their Fleece when they are running after dark.
Those travelling slowly in the 100km are recommended to carry their fleece from Gold Creek reservoir. You can put this in a drop bag to be picked up before dark.
The recent rain may make rescuing you challenging so this item should be used to help you keep warm in case of an emergency extraction.
