As this event will take you through the wilderness of Victorias Alpine region you will be required to carry, as a minimum, a range of mandatory gear.
We have put together this list based on having average seasonal temperatures so please treat the mandatory gear list as a the minimum you should carry. It will be your responsibility to ensure you are best prepared for the weather conditions.
Weather in the Victorian Alps can change quickly so while you may only want to take the lightest mandatory gear it may not be enough should it get cold.
Mandatory kit – an extensive mandatory kit will be conducted at registration prior to competitors leaving the mountain, if you don't have the gear you won't start. If you leave on race day without mandatory gear you will be disqualified from the event. ALL mandatory gear is their for YOUR safety.
SOLO INVITATIONAL RUNNERS will be required to bring the following gear however you will not be required to carry it with you. It will be transported to Kings Hut for emergency use only.
REMINDER NOTE: As mandatory, you need to carry a mobile phone, with back up charge battery, with the Avenza Maps App loaded PLUS the course map downloaded into App.
NOTE: All teams will be required to supply own tent (two person for both team members), however you will NOT have to carry it. Tents (only) will be transported out to your designated sleepover aid stations. So please be realistic about where you are likely to sleep over. Those who are staying at the first (Lovicks), we will also transport your tent around to Kings for your second night stop.
