All participants registered by Fri morning will receive an email from us titled "The Guzzler Ultra – Virtual Run Guide". This will include your personalised bib & details about our Bingo picture competition. Check your Promotions and Spam folders if you can't see yours.
Most of that info can be found in the links above including the FAQs which should answer most queries.
A virtual running event can be run (or walked) anytime, anywhere - within the parameters of each event. The running bit isn't virtual - your legs do the work - but you'll be connected virtually to others completing the event. Run your own race, at your own pace, on your favourite terrain.
Anyone in the world can enter our Virtual Challenge - just make sure to take the time differences into account so that you're completing your run during the 26th-27th July Brisbane time (AEST). If you're not living in Australia and would like a shirt and medal, please contact us before entering to investigate potential shipping options.
Yes, you can do as many or as few segments as you choose. As long as they all start and finish on the event weekend (remember - Brisbane time) and add up to at least your chosen distance, it's completely up to you how you tick off the kilometres.
Wherever you like (as long as it's legal and safe!) You can complete your run (or walk) on footpaths, trails, your treadmill, an oval or even around your backyard. It can be hilly or flat as a tack. We don't mind where you choose to challenge yourself, as long as its on foot.
Minimum ages for each distance are detailed in the Terms and Conditions. While we welcome participation of younger Guzzlers, a parent or guardian must complete this form for all entrants under the age of 18. You must also take full responsibility for them throughout the event including supervision, especially if running on streets or trails, and support to keep them safe and well.
You'll be issued with an electronic version of your bib which will include your unique number and supplied bib nickname. You can print and wear it on the day if you'd like to increase your fun-factor, but that's optional so don't panic if you're not able to.
If you have entered on or before the 20th July you'll get this on Tuesday 21st July. Entries after the 20th will get their personalised bibs on Friday 24th.
If you don't wan't find your email, you can find a copy of your personalised race bib on the results page. Right click the icon next to your name and select "download" or "save as".
You can record you run on any gps watch, run tracking app or treadmill.
Full details on how to submit your results can be found by clicking the "Submit Results" menu item.
All finishers will receive a medal for their event and there will be random prizes on offer from our sponsors for people competing in the Runners Bingo". You will have received an email from us with your personalised bib and instructions on the Bingo game. If you can't find this (check spam) you can download the bingo card here. Get your personalised race bib on the results page by right clicking the icon next to your name and selecting "download".
A time based Leaderboard will be published but there are no prizes for 'winners' as everyone is completing their challenge under very different conditions.
We will have to trust you all. This challenge is mostly meant to be rewarding in the spiritual sense so anyone who cheats is really just cheating themselves and that is probably a pretty icky feeling. That said, if there is any credible evidence that someone has cheated by not doing the distance, riding a bike, strapping a watch onto a cheetah or any other creative work-arounds, they may be disqualified.
While we love to see you challenging yourself, please ensure the challenge is one you can undertake safely. You may like to rope in family or friends to be a support crew and can break the distance down into smaller runs if needed. You could even do loops around the block and set up an 'aid station' in your front yard. It's really up to you how you choose to get the distance done - we just want to see you do it safely and with a whole lot of fun!
On or after race day you'll be able to find your name in the results page (on the "results" tab at the top of this FAQ).
Hit the "Submit Result" button next to your name and verify you are who you say you are by entering your DOB. If you make a mistake on entry, resubmit your result.
Your result will be loaded and your time based ranking will be updated some time after.
