We are really excited to offer you four training days in the lead up to this years race. Check out the details below for more information

TRAINING DAYS

We have four training days available in the lead up to the 2019 race. These are HIGHLY recommended if you have a tendency to get geographically misplaced at times or would like to brush up on your skills - and definitely come if you have no idea at all (we won't tell). Our qualified guides will teach you navigation skills in the field and test this knowledge. The mountain biking day will also cover biking skills.

Only $60 per person per session for Big Bang entrants, $100 for non- Big Bangers.

We have strict ratios for these days, for safety reasons, and a minimum of 8 to make the session work. If minimum numbers are not met you will be advised and a refund, less $10 pp admin fee given, or the option to transfer to another session. If you pull out we offer a 50% refund.

You can opt into these days when you go through the registration process.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

We will supply maps of the route for the day, expert professional instruction, (and maybe some baking) You must bring with you the compulsory kit required for race day.

You will not need a support crew for this day, we will start and finish at the same spot (or as hardened adventure racers you can walk back to the car!)

MORE INFO PLEASE?

Closer to the time we will send out an email with more info on the day and directions. If you have any questions in the meantime just flick us an email.
