Must carry your Mandatory Gear


Mandatory Gear Check


All  competitors need to have their mandatory gear checked before they can receive their Race pack at Race Check-in

There are two options for getting your gear checked:


Option 1:


On-Line Gear Check. Not available after 30th June 2022


Option 2:


Have your gear checked at Race Check-In immediately prior to collecting your race pack. This is the least preferable option as it can make your Race Check-In take much longer.


In 2022, race pack mail outs  for this race only may be possible for a $8.95 postage fee. (Conditions apply) Online Gear Check must be completed before your race pack will be sent out.

Drop bags are to be left at the Start/Finish HQ  aid station tent.

​The mandatory gear required to carry may change  if weather conditions are very cold or wet. 

This decision can be made by the Race Director at any time.


Please note we will not post any items left behind, it is your responsibility to collect them before 2pm Sunday 17th July 2022
