  • Please take a brief moment to read through the information below to familiarize yourself with the days activities:-
    Is This Event Timed:
    No. It is not a race, it is a journey, and as such it is a self timed run.
    Why Are Numbers limited:
    Our numbers are limited because of the delicate nature of the biosystems within the reserve.
    Hordes of cars and people could adversly affect these, add to this, you can have the bragging rights of making a direct contribution to conservation, and getting access through this very special area (private property at all other times).
    Who Can Run:
    Adults only on the 12km run, but the 5km run and walk is open to all ages, (under 12 must be accompanied by an adult), eager adventure enthusiasts, families and friends.
    Is There Secure Parking:
    Yes, there is guarded parking within the reserve fencing, simply follow the directions when you arrive.
    Is The Route Hilly Or Technical:
    The routes are a mix of jeep track and animal tracks and trails.
    There are a few bits out there that should be approached with caution, but just to slow you down enough to take in more of the views and surrounds.
    Water Points:
    Water points are limited due to the difficulty of transporting 500 litres of water in such rough terrain, so we highly recommend that riders on the 40km trail take their own water and snacks.
