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.

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 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.
