Planning & The Challenge
Each checkpoint will have:
– Supportive & enthusiastic volunteers who are there to help however they can
– Food (fruit, lollies, energy gels etc.)
– Hydration (water, tea, coffee & premixed hydration drinks)
– First aid (including blister prevention & treatment)
– Shaded area
– Drop bags & support crew access
Checkpoints open at night will also have:
– Undercover/protected area with heating, blankets, chairs
– Warm food (noodles & soup)
– Extra friendly support to keep you going through the night!
You use drop bags if you don’t have help from a support crew. This means you can give the Challenge Team a bag (preferably a reusable grocery bag) for us to deliver to a certain point on the course.
For example if you have a feeling you’ll want clean socks by the Lady Denman TA, then you can put some clean socks in your drop bag at registration and we’ll have it waiting for you at the TA. You can then collect your bag at the finish.
Do not put any valuables in your drop bag, we are not responsible for any lost property.
Mobile phone luckily, the entire course has phone reception (Telstra has the best coverage for the Northern section). There are two reasons for asking you to carry a phone:
1. If you get lost, hurt, are choosing to withdraw or are concerned about your participation in the event then you can easily call the event crew, first aid (or emergency services, depending on severity)
2. If we have reason to be concerned for your wellbeing or for any other urgent reason, then we can contact you directly without wasting time
Zip lock bag for rubbish the Centenary Trail is beautiful; let’s keep it that way. If you have a bag to keep your rubbish in then the trail will remain clean for others
Race number this must be displayed at all times on the outermost layer of clothing, including hi-vis vest when continuing at night. This is because the timing system reads your race number via a direct signal and if your number is not correctly read at a checkpoint you may be disqualified
Basic first aid we consider this very important as a lot of cuts, aches, pains and blisters are better dealt with straight away, rather than waiting for first aid to arrive or holding out until a checkpoint. Your first aid kit is to help you with minor issues. If you are in doubt of the injury, contact event crew immediately to receive professional attention.
• Multipurpose surgical tape – for securing band aids, gauze, blister pads, bandages etc. and holding wounds together
• Crepe/stretching bandage – for compression of cuts, bites or injuries, or as a sling
• Band aids – for cuts, blisters, splinters or most things; if you’re not sure why you need band aids we highly recommend doing a long distance training walk, then you will realize
• Sterile wipes – for cleaning and sterilizing cuts, bites, blisters, abrasions etc., because of the nature of the event, minor injuries can easily get infected. Don’t let it happen to you!
• Safety pins – a very handy multipurpose item, they can be used for piercing blisters, attaching a bandage or sling, re-attaching your race number or fixing broken bags or pieces of clothing. Make sure they are clean and sterile before packing them
After 7:00 pm gear
Long sleeve thermal top (polypropylene, wool or similar) – for warmth and protection, you may feel warm from walking/running but once stopped, sweat and fatigue can cool you down very quickly making it difficult to continue. The average temperature for the night is 11 degrees.
Beanie, balaclava or buff – again, this is for warmth and protection, it can also make wearing your headlamp more confortable for a long period of time
High-visibility safety vest –a very essential piece of gear because it makes you more visible to cars at road crossings, first aid if they need to find you, or to other participants
Headlamp (fully charged + spare batteries) – to help you see the terrain, course markings and obstacles, make sure your light is fully charged and you have enough battery to last the duration of the event
Emergency space blanket – in case of an emergency and are stuck out on the course, or beginning to suffer from hypothermia and in need instant warmth
Waterproof jacket – this is only mandatory in wet weather, event crew will notify you if you must carry this prior to event day. It will allow to you continue with the event in wet weather without developing hypothermia
