Hartle Timing will be timing our event. The timing chip is an passive transponder worn around the ankle as per instructions in the race pack and given during the briefing. Participants must wear it during the whole race to ensure all legs and transitions are timed. A team member must hand the timing chip to the next member or else that member will not be timed and the team will NOT obtain a complete result.
The chip MUST be returned at the end of the race or the participant will be charged AUD$50.
Your bib must be positioned (unmodified and fully-visible) to the front of your shirt and displayed throughout the entire race. We recommend you write your full name, emergency contact information and any allergies or health conditions you have on the back of your race bib.
NOTE: Please do not write YOUR phone number on the back of the bib but that of your EMERGENCY CONTACT.
A Parental Consent Form is required for each participant under the age of 18 on race day as the parent or legal guardian must agree for a minor to participate in any event. There are two ways to do this: through the online registration process or on a paper form which can be handed in at the administration tent raceday.
