All courses have been measured using GPS technology. However, distances may vary slightly depending on track approvals and in the event of extreme weather conditions.  The course will be marked and all efforts will be made to make it easy to follow.

Track surfaces will vary significantly throughout the course to include river flats, open woodland, technical loose rocky single trail, 4WD track, sand, tree roots and everything in between.  Being August, expect mud, water and slippery conditions.  Don’t expect to see much bitumen!
