OPTION 2 - STAY AT THE FINISH LINE - CAMPING AT SETTLEMENT DAY USE AREA

As part of our event permit for 2018, there will be a section of the Settlement Day Use Area oval allocated for participant camping for the Friday night prior to the event (August 31, 2018).

Things to note:

  • Camping will require a booking, and will be restricted to either tents or campervans only (no towed vechicles - caravans, camper-trailers etc).
  • Vehicle access to the camping area will be between 4:00-7:00pm only - this will be strictly enforced to ensure a NO NOISE policy from 8pm (to allow participants a proper rest pre-race).
  • There will be space allocated for one vehicle only per site - you will be required to provide your car registration number at time of booking.
  • Camping is for a single night only (Friday), and all tents and campervans must be packed down and off the oval by 5pm on race day.
  • Bib collection will be available on Friday evening between 4:00-7:00pm at the Settlement Day Use Area.
  • Runners who are camping at the finish line need to make use of the event morning shuttle buses departing from the event parking area (see TRANSPORT). The buses will be departing before 4:15am.

BOOKINGS:

Camping is $10pp and can be booked HERE.

OPTION 3 - STAY AT THE FINISH LINE - SPRINGBROOK PLATEAU

Springbrook Mountain has numerous - mostly B&B style - accommodation options, and we recommend that runners and spectators make use of Google, Trip Advisor etc to view the options available to them.

Runners who are staying up at Springbrook will need to make use of the event morning shuttle buses departing from the event parking area (see TRANSPORT). The buses will be departing before 4:15am, so please keep this in mind when choosing your accommodation as it will involve a very early start on Saturday morning.

Bib collection will be available either on Saturday morning at the shuttle bus pick-up area only. There will be no bib collection at the Binna Burra start precinct on race morning.

OPTION 4 - DRIVE TO SPRINGBROOK ON RACE MORNING

For runners who wish to drive to the event on race morning only (no accommodation), you will be required to drive to the event parking area on Springbrook Plateau (see TRANSPORT). From there you will be shuttled to the start line at Binna Burra.

All buses will be departing before 4:15am, so please keep this in mind as it will involve a very early start on Saturday morning.

Bib collection will be available on Saturday morning at the shuttle bus pick-up area only. There will be no bib collection at the Binna Burra start precinct on race morning.

You will be able to walk to your cars from the finish line.

Participants ARE NOT to drive or be dropped to the start line on race morning. Unless you are staying at Binna Burra Lodge on the Friday night prior (see ACCOMMODATION), participants must make use of the event shuttle bus. Participants will be disqualified if they break this rule.

Note that given the early start for the shuttle bus, it's not a bad idea to bring a sleeping mask and some headphones to try and grab a little extra sleep before the race! We will then transport any of this gear back to the finish line for you.

EVENT SHUTTLE BUS

Participants must make their way to the event finish area at the Settlement Day Use Area - Carricks Rd, Springbrook (see map below).

Carpark opens: 3:40am
Bib Collection: 3:40am - 4:10am
Last bus departs: 4:15am

NOTE: DO NOT BE LATE as the bus will not be able to wait

The parking area gate will be locked at the time of bus departure - please ensure that if you are being dropped off that your driver leaves before this time.

For participants staying at Binna Burra (Lodge or Campground) on Friday night, there will be a shuttle running from the main lodge entrance down to the startline - refer to the participant information guide for times.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • Participants are not to drive themselves to the start line on race morning - please make use of the event buses from Springbrook Mountain or stay in accommodation at Binna Burra. Bib collection will be available on Saturday morning at the shuttle bus pick-up area only (unless you are staying at Binna Burra - see option 1 in ACCOMMODATION) - there will be no bib collection available at the Binna Burra start precinct on race morning.

  • There will be no return transport to Binna Burra after the event (unless you have booked a transfer with Binna Burra Lodge - see ACCOMMODATION).
