Mandatory & Recommended Kit

MANDATORY

  • Please familiarise yourself with the course map and course directions, both of which can be found on this page - you must have access to a copy of the map in your kit, electronically or printed (there is limited mobie coverage on course with Optus, unusually, providing the better service in the area) - we recommend a printed and laminated map.

  • Fluoro vest - there are three very short sections of road included in the course (for all events).

  • Capacity for at least 1½ litres of water

  • Headlamp (for runs commencing before sunrise)

  • Mobile phone (coverage is not good in the area but having a phone means you can relocate to an area that has coverage if that’s not the case)

  • Race directors contact added to phone, Hopefully you won't need it, but if you do, you'll be glad of it.

  • Compression bandage (cheaply available at most chemists) - we recommend two as a standard bandage will may not enable you to wrap an entire limb.

  • Emergency Whistle

RECOMMENDED

  • Insect repellent

  • Bite and sting treatment 

  • Shin gaiters as you may end up having to 'wait a while' on some sections!  Terra Tribe stock a selection including 'Moxie' and 'Altra' products - www.terratribe.com.au

AAA racing accept it in good faith that the mandatory list is adhered to by participants, though there will be spot checks on course

 
During the Event

Course Marking

Course marking will consist of flagging tape, arrows on trees and signage where necessary


Hydration

It is essential, with no exceptions, that each participant carries a water bottle at the very minimum. There will be water at all CPs along with other provisions (specifics to be advised as necessary to participants by email, prior to event day)

 

Litter

Any rubbish can be taken from you each time you visit a checkpoint. Anything that leaves the checkpoint with you must stay with you until you can dispose of it properly and not on the course. We’d like to set and maintain an example to those less conscientious.


Toilets

Toilet facilities are available at the start/finish area and at some locations along the course (dependent on the event).  Please do not remove paper from the toilets.

Withdrawal

If you pull out or have to leave the course for any reason, please advise the checkpoint staff or those at the start finish area.


Practice mindfulness

Regardless of ability, please be mindful of other runners: If you’re a faster runner wanting to pass, advise the runner in front by all means, 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 Saturday night being a little better for their experience. Look after each other out there.


Health and injury

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. We’d rather make the mistake of scratching someone who could continue than letting someone who shouldn’t.


Remember where you are

We don’t like to talk about it, but we are in Queensland and many of the locals aren’t so friendly if they’re frightened or disturbed. Watch where you’re putting your feet and keep a close eye on the ground as well as ahead.

Take note, a compression bandage is part of the mandatory kit for this event.  You can find more information here:
 


We recommend that you carry a compression bandage and understand how to apply it. Take a look here:

The event crew are running the show

Cooperate with event crew/officials/volunteers all the times - they're there not only because they enjoy giving something back or participating in a different way, but because they have event experience. They know what they're doing and they'll be under instruction from the race directors. Under whatever circumstances, the event directors decisions are final ... and they're usually the same as the crew! :)

 

Finally, have Fun!
It is a compulsory requirement of all participants at AAA Racing events to have fun. Failure to have any fun will be frowned upon by the event management team!
