RUBBISH MANAGEMENT

Trailsplus is dedicated to caring for our world by avoiding single use plastics and by managing our rubbish responsibly.  Please help us by ALWAYS placing your rubbish in a bin or taking it home with you. When available, please choose the right bin for your rubbish. In 2024 Trailsplus will provide special tubs for the new Container Deposit Scheme. Please help us by placing participating containers into the labelled tubs.  If you are part of a group that is benefitting from this scheme, please speak to us about how we can team with you.

PRESENTATIONS

Presentations will begin for each distance as soon as possible after 1st, 2nd and 3rd places are determined for that distance.

All finishers receive a custom designed medal.

1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners each receive a trophy and a prize. However, the winner must be present to receive the prize. If you are a winner and must leave before presentation, please let us know. Some people are pleasantly surprised to find they finished in a podium place, so check results before you leave – just in case!

Team results may be calculated late as team members may be participating in the longer distance events. These may be announced on social media or via email.

CAR PARKING

There are 3 carparks available within the park:

Carpark A – 200m from start

Carpark B – 500m from start

Carpark C – 900m from start

Follow the signs.

Please be respectful to and obey our volunteer car parking attendants. And please park considerately to maximise car parking availability for other competitors, supporters and park users.

Trailsplus suggests carpooling if possible as the carparks can become very busy with park visitors.

WHAT TO BRING

Please bring a water bottle or cup to carry while you run. Water and sports drink is available at several aid stations on the course. See the maps for locations. We do not provide paper cups during our events, but you may purchase a collapsable silicone reusable cup during check-in.
