9. Any trekker requiring IV fluids and/or prescription medications from event doctors must withdraw from that day's trek and can only continue on following days if the Medical Director gives approval. This decision is final.

10. A trekker who does not complete a day can continue the next day with the approval of the Medical Director but will not receive a ranking or time at the end of the event. If the Medical Director does not approve the entrant to continue, this decision is final.

11. The Medical Director has the authority to prevent an entrant’s continued participation at any stage of the event, if it is deemed unsafe for the individual’s health and/or their safety.

12. Medical Certificates must be signed by a doctor, and returned within the specified time frame along with he completion of an online medical survey. Failure to do this may result in the Medical Director preventing your participation. Registered participants will be sent information about both the online medical survey and Medical Certificates closer to the event.

13. The cutoff time for each day is sunset. Trekkers who are not yet finished by this time must wait at the nearest checkpoint where they will be taken to camp in an event vehicle.

14. The safety of the participants is the highest priority for the trek organisers. Safety comes first before anything else, which means that if the event has to be called off or suspended due to any issue that may compromise the safety of competitors, the organisers will not hesitate to do that.

Event Organisers reserve the right to alter the course without notice and/or cancel the event in consultation with, and under the direction of, emergency services agencies and major event stakeholders or landowners. In the unlikely circumstance that the event is cancelled for reasons outside of our control such as weather, fire, flood, park closures or any other reasons, we will be unable to offer a refund of your entry fee. This is due to the fact that most of the costs of operating an event like BIG ULURU TREK are incurred and paid for prior to the event.

 

By registering for the event, I hereby agree that I acknowledge, understand and will adhere to the above rules at all times while participating in the BIG ULURU TREK I understand that failure to comply with these rules may result in time penalties, withdrawal from the race, or being prohibited from starting the race.
