THE PRINCIPLES
OF LEAVE NO TRACE

 

Event Rules

  1. You must complete the marked course on foot under your own power. Stick to the marked tracks, follow the course as signposted and as directed by the marshals.
  2. Your race number must be visible at all times on the outside of your clothing and preferably on the front of your body over your belly or chest.
  3. You must not fold, cut or change your race number in any way. It must be worn as is, unfolded.
  4. The wearing of iPods or other music players with headphones is not allowed at all. This is both for road safety and so you don’t hold up faster runners.
  5. All participants are required to carry their own personal cup, which they can refill at aid stations on course.
  6. If you withdraw from the event, you must sign the withdrawal form at the closest checkpoint (unless assisted from the course by First Aid crews).  This is an essential requirement to avoid unnecessary searches being conducted and emergency services being engaged.
  7. If you need First Aid help on the course notify fellow competitors and/or on-course marshals. Radio communications and medical staff are available at the Start/Finish, and Dudley Beach Car park and along Gun Club Rd.
  8. Runners are expected to assist competitors who have injured themselves. If you come across an injured runner, provide assistance and ask a fellow runner to inform race officials at the next intersection. Times will be adjusted to compensate for any losses.
  9. You must obey directions of checkpoint staff or course marshals and withdraw from the race if you miss any time cut-offs at checkpoints or on course.
  10. Littering is prohibited.
  11. You must not leave human faeces on the track. If the need arises, you must either use a toilet (or a wag bag), be out of sight, covering up what you leave behind using leave no trace principles. The event organisers strongly recommend utilising the toilet facilities at the start venue located at Dixon Park prior to your race or Toilet provided at the Aid Station 1.
  12. You must not take dogs into National Parks.
  13. You must not smoke in the National Park
  14. You must obey any information signs such as track closures, etc.
  15. Outside assistance is not permitted
  16. Pacers are not permitted.
  17. The event organisers reserve the right to discourage and/or penalise behaviour that is considered unsporting.
  18. Breaking any of the rules may incur a time penalty, disqualification or pre-race withdrawal. Any such penalties are at the organisers’ discretion and are final.
  19. All junior runners aged between 11-12 participating in the 11km race must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Each accompanying parent or guardian must read and sign an authorisation and indemnity before participating.
