Mandatory Gear

The Mandatory Gear is not negotiable – you must present this gear at check in at the event.

While this is a running event – the weather conditions and possibly changing weather conditions and temperatures are unlike any other trail running event in Australia. Please respect the mandatory gear, and remember good gear can save your life! Great advice can be had with a quick call to Bruce Easton at Wilderness Sports.

please note the following Mandatory Gear is for all events with the exception of the following:

Snow Shoes – these are mandatory for the 27k and 42k events only. Due to the Mt McKay Summit Dash event being all on groomed trails – the mandatory label has been lifted for the SnowShoes for the 14k event only.
