• Comfortable athletic clothing - like shorts, running shoes and cap
• Water bottle (we have a refill station at the finish line)
• Togs + towel
• Picnic for team and family supporters for after XRACE
• Your own medication if required
You will be provided with an XRACE t-shirt which must be worn during the competition. You must also wear the provided timing chip (also called a transponder, refer below).
XRACE challenges may involve water, mud and physical exertion, so we recommend you dress appropriately in old clothes, covered toe shoes and your swimming togs underneath your clothing in case you encounter water.
Do not race with electronic devices including keys. These may get wet.
BRING PENS OR A PENCIL!!
Your first challenge is to bring a pen or pencil. Teams that forget to could face delays on challenges trying to track down our spare supply of pens. So, pack the pen first!
TRANSPONDERS (Timing Chips)
When you arrive at the race venue, you must locate the Transponder Pick Up table. This is where you will receive your timing chip. It looks like a small credit card with four holes punched in it.
Both parent and child must wear their own individual transponder. It must be worn on the shoe and nowhere else. Failure to correctly wear your transponder will result in your team not being recorded a time. Teams without shoelaces - we can provide you with small zip ties.
SHOES ON AT THE FINISH
This is critical. Shoes must be on as you cross the finish line otherwise your team's time crossing the finish line may not be recorded.
Compulsory challenges are challenges that we tell you about ahead of your race. This allows teams to learn new skills and have fun together prior to your race day. Click here to see your compulsory challenge.
We are holding a sale of merchandise on race day PRIOR to the event starting at Late Registration. Please note, we will not have any card facilities, cash only.
We are proud to be event leaders when it comes to minimising our event waste footprint. This is really important to us. Please help us out by doing your part. Noting,
We provide water at the finish but no cups. Please bring your own refillable water bottles.
We do not provide any rubbish bins at the finish line for any waste you may bring with you.
Please take home with you all waste you generate - and recycle appropriately.
Each XRACE uses different wave starts to help us reduce congestion when you arrive at challenges. Wave times will be posted on the Wednesday before your event. We suggest you write your start time on your hand so you don’t forget it.
We release between 10 and 30 teams every 60 seconds – this is called a wave.
So, if the race starts at 9:00 A.M and your team is wave 12 your start time will be 9:12 A.M. Collect your transponders in the registration area, tie them on your shoes, then make your way to the start line in time for your wave departure time. The announcer will call up waves by number into the start house where you will be joined by other teams in your wave.
There will be a clock displayed at the start line that will show official race time. The race clocks are considered to be official time and will be set to run at the same time as shown on your phone.
Leaving the start house before your departure time = no recorded time
Leaving the start house at your allocated time = recorded time
Leaving the start house after your allocated time = recorded time
