Planning & The Challenge

You can choose to walk or run any of the distances as a soloist or as part of a team. The only limitation on speed is making the cut-off times, which allow you to walk at 3.6km/hr throughout the race.
It is a full challenge, meaning that all team members do the full distance (100km, 50km or 25km).
You cannot leave the course during the challenge. There will be blankets and seats provided at checkpoints, as well as anything brought by your support crew. Keep in mind it is much harder to keep going once you’ve stopped though!
All participants will go past at least one checkpoint throughout the event. Even if you’re not taking advantage of the food and drinks, you will need to pass across the timing system so we know you’ve reached the checkpoint.
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
– Toilets
– Drop bags & support crew access
Checkpoints open at night will also have:
– Lights
– Undercover/protected area with heating, blankets, chairs
– Warm food (noodles & soup)
– Extra friendly support to keep you going through the night!
The course will be fully marked with reflective, high visibility pink tape. Please obey any event signage and continue to look for the next arrow/flagging tape. All marking will be at eye-height (approximately) and you should expect to see some form of marking every 50 metres (or 10 metres in difficult sections). If you are unsure of where to go or think marking has been moved you will need to contact the event director.
There will be portaloo’s or toilet blocks at each water station and transition area. If you need to go between these stop remember the leave no trace rule. Get at least 5 metres from the trail and well away from water courses, dig a hole and cover it up afterwards. DO NOT use toilet paper unless you plan to carry it with you until the next bin.
Yes but we suggest arriving at the start line with your water bladder or bottle full and ready to go. Transition areas and water stations will have water for you to refill and there are spaced no further than 10km apart for the 50km and 25km event. For the 100km, the furthest you will go is approximately 18km, around the north section. There is a water tank at the Northern Border Campground, but this is NOT for drinking.
Yes there are drop bags to all checkpoints.
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.
There will be first aid on site throughout the weekend, with some at checkpoints and water stations and others roving around the course. Either you will continue with the Challenge or you will be taken back to the Start/ Finish line by first aid, event crew or your support team. Do not withdraw without notifying event crew.
Yes, all soloists and teams will get a finishing time. This will be live at the finish line and also available on the CBR 100 Challenge website.
All finishers will receive a CBR 100 Challenge Finishers Medal. If you do not complete the course & pass through the checkpoints you will not receive a medal.
We will have a timing manager who will monitor any unusual times, missing checkpoints or reports of participants not staying on the correct route. If we have reason to believe you didn’t stick to the course or used another form of transport we will award you a disqualification and revoke your finisher’s medal. If you are at all unsure of where you are going, or if your timing tag was read correctly, contact the timing manager immediately to avoid disqualification.
2 litres of water / Capacity to carry water Carrying water is essential, no matter what the distance. Participants can go up to 19km without a provided water stop or checkpoint so we want to know you have enough to comfortably get through the event.
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
