RACE RULES

  • Competitors are responsible for the actions of their crews and supporters.

  • The computer lap scoring area is strictly out of bounds to all except those involved in lap scoring. All queries to go to the race director who will liaise with lap scorers. Our lap scoring team will record all competitors and will issue hourly reports.

  • All complaints and/or protests to be made in writing to the race director.

  • Rule violations may lead to disqualification.

  • Numbers to be securely pinned back and front to ensure accurate lap scoring. If your numbers are obscured, then you may not be recorded by the lap scorers.

  • Ultra-competitors to advise in advance of any record attempts.

  • Runners must stick to the lanes they have been allocated.

  • It is good sportsmanship to allow faster movers to be on the inside of a lane, in longer events walking and eating are allowed. Please move to the outside of the lane or the next lane (when two are allocated) to allow faster athletes to continue.

  • Athletes taking either extended breaks from the track or withdrawing from their event should alert the race director.

  • When joining the race after a “break” the athlete should be aware of any turnarounds that may have happened: The procedure for joining the race following a turnaround is to continue in the direction that you were going when you left the track. If the race is still going the same direction then you simply continue. If the race is coming in the opposite direction to when you left then you need to run against the traffic (preferably in the outer lane of your event) until the start finish line where you will turn around after crossing the timing mat and rejoin the field in their direction.

Steigen Socks

Steigen creates athletic apparel which lets you rise to the pinnacle of your next challenge by creating non intrusive, high performance apparel with a specialised design using the best materials from all over the world.

Athletic or Running Socks are an accessory for comfort – the less you feel them the better. Steigen running socks are thin which creates minimal space between the shoe and your foot. This then leads to less movement in the shoe and then less friction/heat. Steigen  Running Socks are designed to create an environment in which blisters are less likely to form. They are designed to give the wearer a more responsive feeling from foot and shoe.

The Chia Co.

Our bright, bold ‘chia orange’ is inspired by the rich red soil of The Kimberley region, where we first established our chia farms. It also reflects the pioneering nature of our brand.

John Foss established The Chia Co to positively impact global health by making the nutrition in chia available to everyone, every day.

If you are going to do this sort of distance you need a solid nutrition plan and to practice it all the time. Hammer Nutrition have put together the basic guidelines and information to start. Treat the knowledge like gold and you will have a much more enjoyable run.
