Check Clean Dry - Protecting this place 

The Big Bang Adventure Race travels through some pretty awesome wilderness and we need to make sure nothing we do will damage or alter this natural habitat. The pristine streams and rivers that make up part of this years course are home to good populations of native fish and will be forever changed if freshwater pests like didymo become established.

To compete in this event you must have clean gear before you start. Please have your race gear cleaned and/or dry before arriving, alternatively there will be cleaning equipment available at the start line. (The organisers reserve the right to implement any other Check Clean Dry precautions as they see fit.)

We thank you in advance for taking these simple steps to protect our natural heritage.
