grampians Challenge Trail Run

Welcome to the Grampians Challenge Trail Run!!! 

We are absolutely excited to bring on spectacular course to enjoy views of Northern Grampians and explore new trails.

 

Timing

Electronic timing will be used on the trail run courses. You will need to touch a finish station with the timing chip provided during the registration, and then do not forget to give it to officials at the finish line, no chip- no time.

 

Trail marking

Course is clearly marked with arrows and on all intersections and occasionally on a longer straight stretches. Although we do recommend you to have a look at the map prior the event, trail run events are not self-navigable races. If you managed to get lost, there will be a map printed on the back of your race bib and a phone number of race organisers.

 

First Aid

First Aid officials will be located at the Aid station approximately in the middle of the course and at the start and finish area.

 

Aid station

Fruits, sport drinks, water and your bag will be located at the finish station. Please put all rubbish into the rubbish bags provided. If you want your bag to be transported to the aid station it has to be brought to the start area not later than 40 min prior the start.

 

Phone coverage

Telstra 3G is recommended for the Grampians, phone coverage is pretty average there, text would go through, but not call in some areas.

 

Parking

Ample parking is available both at the finish/start area, please follow race information sent to you prior the event.

 

Course logistics

Course is a loop course - start and finish at the same place.
