WHAT TO BRING

HERE IS A PACK LIST FOR THE DAY
• Comfortable athletic clothing - like shorts, running   shoes and cap
• SUNBLOCK
• Water bottle (we will have a refill station)
• Raincoat – if it rains, we race and get wet
• Picnic for team and family supporters for after XRACE
• Your own medication if required

WHAT TO WEAR

You will be provided with an XRACE t-shirt which must be worn during the competition. You must also wear the provided timing chip (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.


TIMING TAGS

TRANSPONDERS
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.

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

Compulsory challenges are where teams get to learn new skills and have fun together prior to your race day.  Find your Compulsory Challenges here.


MERCHANDISE

MERCHANDISE SALE
Merchandise will be on sale on race day for the 2 hours prior to the start of the event. Please note, we will not have any EFTPOS facilities, cash only.

WE LOVE OUR PLANET

At the finish line, we will have large water containers for you to refill your drink bottles. But, unlike other events we do not provide paper cups.

We are trying to set the standard in reducing our event waste footprint.

There are no rubbish bins onsite. Please take all waste away and dispose with consideration – thanks for this!
(TIP: use your race pack bag as a rubbish bag).

WAVE TIMES

Each XRACE uses different wave starts to help us reduce congestion when you arrive at challenges. Your wave number will be listed at the bottom of this page the Wednesday before your race.

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 two large clocks 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.

IMPORTANT

  • 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
