ON COURSE SUPPORT
There will be course marshals out on course at all major intersections and many course directional arrows and signs to ensure that you remain on the correct course. Although you may feel in the middle of the bush, you are rarely more than 50m from vehicle access.
We hope that this service is not required, however we will have St Johns First Aid staff both at the finish line and a mobile unit out on MTB course to ensure participant safety.
The transition area will open at 8:15am. A Helmet and bike safety check will take place on entering the transition. Only participants are allowed in the Transition area.

Participants are to park on Branches Road and in the You Yangs allocated car parks. Please do not park on the You Yangs Entrance road or in bush areas not allocated to parking. Failure to follow these rules will result in the event not receiving Parks Victoria Permit approval in the future.
