race ETIQUETTE

We are extremely lucky to be granted permission to run on this iconic walking track. The future approval of this race is dependent on the behaviour of runners this year. Please be conscious of these etiquette outlines to help secure the future of this race.

HIKERS & OTHER TRAIL USERS

There will be other users on the track. You may encounter large organised groups of hikers or solo day trippers. At all times show courtesy to people you encounter along the course. We do not have exclusive rights to the trail.

TOILETS

There are toilets at the checkpoint. Please attempt to use these.

Where this is not possible it is important to follow standard bushwalking etiquette: please go well of the trail (leaving your pack so that the sweeper does not go past you) and scrape a hole sufficient to allow you to bury your waste. Do not go within 25metres of any watercourse.

RUBBISH

Runners must not drop litter of any sort on the course. Any disposable item taken from the checkpoint or food points must be carrier to the next.

Any runner or crew found littering will result in the runner being disqualified.
