Trekkers’ rules

Event Rules
  • All team members must be aged 16 years and over, unless accompanied by adults.
  • Each team member must sign a waiver form and a personal information form at the commencement of the trail.
  • Each team must have at least 2 to 6 members to start the trek. If your team is larger than 6, just inform the organisers when you register
  • Each team member must wear their team number throughout the event.
  • Teams must check in and out together at each designated check point on the trail. Volunteers at checkpoints will not check in or out teams with members unaccounted for.
  • If a team member is injured and therefore cannot complete the trail, they must not be left alone. If possible they should be brought to the nearest checkpoint. If they are unable to continue a team member must remain with them while other team members seek help.
  • In the case of an emergency, team members must contact the Safety Officer as soon as possible.
  • If you want to withdraw from the event at any time, you must ensure that you have reported to the nearest checkpoint to be signed off.
  • If a team should get down to only 1 person, this team must accompany another team between checkpoints. This is for safety reasons only and the team will retain their identity (name) and number.
  • Each checkpoint will close at a certain time. Therefore if a team has not departed a checkpoint by the nominated closing time, the team will be withdrawn from the event and will be advised not to proceed.
  • A team’s finishing time will be recorded as the last team member reports to the final checkpoint.
  • Teams must respect the environment and take out any rubbish with them. There will be bins provided at Checkpoints.
  • Dogs are not permitted on the trail and at checkpoints.
  • Each team must carry at least one First Aid kit. Any specific medication required by team members is their personal responsibility.
  • All fund raising activities undertaken by participants must comply with relevant State Government regulations.
