YOU MUST START IN YOUR WAVE. YOUR WAVE NUMBER WILL BE LISTED AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE THE WEDNESDAY BEFORE YOUR RACE.
XRACE FINISH TIME:
STRAIGHT AFTER THE LAST TEAM FINISHES
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 (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.
Two small items to make life easier.
Pencil. Make sure you pack a pencil or a pen as some challenges require you to write down the answers. Pencils work heaps better if there is rain forecast.
Carabiner. Secondly is to bring along your own carbiner or an item to keep your challenge cards together. We will not be providing carabiners so bring a small one along with you.
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 mustbe 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.
PLEASE RETURN OUR TRANSPONDERS Transponders are loaned to you and must be returned straight after the finish line.
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.
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
