RACE INFORMATION

DROP BAGS

 

 

Runners can leave Drop Bags, clearly marked with their Name, Race Number and intended Checkpoint, at the Start between 4:30am and 5:30am on the morning of the Race for transportation to the nominated Checkpoint.

Runners can also leave personal supplies at Checkpoints in their Drop Bags for delivery to the Finish of the 100 Kilometres where they will be available until the Checkpoint closes and then to the Finish of the 100 Miles.

Unsupported Runners can also leave their travel baggage (not too large, please!) at the Start with the Drop Bags destined for the Finish of their event.  All such baggage must be clearly labelled with their Name and Race Number and the intended Checkpoint.  Don't just write 'FINISH' on the travel baggage that needs to go to the 100 Kilometre Finish.  Such bags will go to Patonga, the Finish of the 100 Miles.  Instead, write CP 4 on the items and place them with the Drop Bags destined for CP4.

Drop Bags will not be transported from each Checkpoint until the last Runner has passed through or the cut-off time for that Checkpoint has passed.

The organisers will not be responsible for returning any Drop Bags (and their contents) to Runners if they are unclaimed at the Finish by 6:30pm on Sunday, 10 September 2017.

ALTHOUGH THE ORGANISERS WILL DO THEIR BEST TO ENSURE DROP BAGS ARE DELIVERED INTACT TO CHECKPOINTS, AND RETURNED TO THE FINISH, THEY ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST OR DAMAGED DROP BAGS OR THEIR CONTENTS.  DROP BAGS ARE NECESSARILY PILED IN BOXES FOR TRANSPORT, SO THEY MUST BE ROBUST AND THEIR CONTENTS PROTECTED IN LEAK-PROOF AND CRUSH-PROOF (WHERE APPROPRIATE) CONTAINERS.

DO NOT PUT VALUABLES IN DROP BAGS!
