Course Details

The 2019 course will be run around an 11km lap, changing direction on completion of each lap (for those competing in distances beyond one lap). The surface is a mix of pine forest trail, grass, gravel, sand, compact dirt and two small creek crossings (one of which is usually dry).

This event is based at Wild Horse Mountain car park, consisting of six runs of 11, 22, 33, 55km, 6 hours and 12 hours. There will also be a 1.5km kid’s fun run.

FAQs

Race Instructions
The race is here for fun, but for your own safety and wellbeing, AAA Racing does have some guidelines: AAA Racing is committed to preserving the environment in which we are privileged to stage our events. With this in mind, they do not provide disposable cups at checkpoints. As such, participants will need to carry their own cup for drinks they don’t want to take from their hydration pack or water bottle (coke, electrolyte).

  1. It is essential, with no exceptions, that each participant carries a water bottle at the very minimum. Checkpoint 1 (the only checkpoint on the course) will have water, electrolyte, some lollies and small snacks but will have no cups.
  2. Any rubbish can be taken from you each time you visit the checkpoint. Anything that leaves the checkpoint with you must stay with you until you can dispose of it properly and not on the course. Though not the worst I’ve seen, you’ll see a little evidence on the day of the way the general public treat the area, I’d rather we set an example.
  3. Toilet facilities are available at the start/finish area and there are also toilets at the service stations on either side of the Bruce Highway off Johnson Road. Please do not remove the paper from the toilets at the start/finish area.
  4. During the race if you retire or have to leave the course for any reason, please advise the checkpoint staff or those at the start finish area.
  5. Regardless of ability, please be mindful of other runners: If you’re a faster runner wanting to pass, advise the runner in front but be patient and don’t pressurise anyone. It can be unnerving and easily lead to a trip. Conversely, if you are aware of a faster runner behind you, take the utmost of care and allow them to pass when it’s safe. Many a runner/ walker’s day can be blighted by the smallest of incidents and we want everyone to leave on Sunday is a little better for their experience. Look after each other out there.
  6. This isn’t the nanny state by any means but we are out on the trail. As per the waiver agreed to on entry, should you become injured or should event staff consider that you need medical attention or examination, do not continue until authorised to do so. If it’s deemed that it’s not in your interests to continue, you will be withdrawn from the event.
  7. Remember where you are. Watch where you’re putting your feet and keep a close eye on the ground as well as ahead.
