Kit List

What to bring

All runners (that includes those doing the 22 km), must carry with them as a minimum the following safety equipment. The reason for this is if someone were to injure themselves out on the trail, they may need to either walk out or wait a couple of hours for medical assistance. Given the area is subject to sudden changes in weather and the possibility of an injured person rapidly losing core body temperature or going into shock, these items are considered the minimum safety requirements:

  • Compass and/or GPS, whistle, waterproof map of the area (recommended is Rooftop’s Mt Feathertop – Hotham 1:30,000 and adjacent Bogong High Plains or Spatial Vision – Bogong Alpine Area 1:50,000). Maps may be downloaded from the website
  • Broad bandage – for snake bite and sprains (8 – 10 cm restrictive bandage—white crepe bandages are NOT acceptable) – see below
  • Antiseptic wipes, band-aids, painkillers (6)
  • Waterproof jacket with hood and waterproof overpants
  • Spare long sleeved thermal propylene /wool top and long johns
  • Beanie/hat, gloves
  • Torch, spare batteries
  • Emergency space blanket
  • Food
  • Emergency food (energy bar/chocolate)
  • Mobile Phone (for emergency calls)
  • A gear check will be conducted on Friday night. Failure to carry ALL the mandatory gear listed above will mean you will NOT be permitted to run. Please pay special attention to the requirements regarding bandage.

      Pre dinner/ regiseration. Can it be earlier than 8:30pm? I live an hour from Bright and going to bed after 9.30pm isn't ideal for a race?
