Conditions

 

The 62KM ultra marathon is a gnarly course. This should not be your first ultra-running experience. If you are new to ultra-running, we suggest you take on the shorter course of 33KM - trust us when we say that course is still epic!

 

You must be fit and well when you undertake any of the Resilience courses. We will have medical assistance on site, but you must be starting the race in good condition. 

 

We understand that injuries happen, and we will happily change your distance if needed. Please do not undertake these courses if you are not 100% sure you are ready for them. The last thing we want is to be sending in the helicopter to pick you up. A heli ride is cool, but not if you have a medical team around you! 

 

Your safety is our focus and if our medics or staff make the determination that you are not fit to start or continue the course, you will be withdrawn from the race. It this situation occurs, it is not without thorough consideration, it is the duty of the Resilience team to have you home safe at the end of the race. No race is worth putting yourself or others in danger. Please follow the directions of the marshals and medics at all times.

You must be over the age of 18 to take part in the 62km race. Persons aged between 18- 16 are allowed to participate in the 33km race, but they must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the race. Under 16's can take part in the 10km race, but they must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the race. For the 10km race, persons over the age of 16 do not need an accompanying adult. Please note, all participants under the age of 18 must have a parent of legal guardian sign an additional waiver at race registration.
