Out of bounds areas
There are sections of the race course that are open EXCLUSIVELY on race day. These sections are on private property and prior access is strictly prohibited. We value our relationships with private landowners and take their rights to privacy seriously, therefore anyone caught on these sections outside of race day will be disqualified from the event and their entry fee will not be refunded.
All other sections of the course are OK to train on however it is always advisable to check with the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife, Waratah-Wynyard Council or Circular Head Council first on any track closures that may be in place at the time of your trip. Track maintenance requiring closures does occur periodically throughout the year.
National Park access
As part of the race course takes you through Rocky Cape National Park – you will be required to have a valid National Parks Pass if you enter this area for training purposes. Parks passes can be purchased online from www.parks.tas.gov.au or from the most Visitor Information Centres, including Wynyard and Stanley.
Please note that dogs are not allowed in Tasmanian National Parks.
Leave no trace
You will not find rubbish bins along the course - Please be prepared to carry your rubbish with you.
Safety when training
Much of the course is rugged and reasonably remote. Tasmanian Multisport Adventures takes no responsibility for your safety whilst training on course. It is advised to always train with a partner, and carry the necessary safety equipment similar to the mandatory race day list, and enough food and water. There are sections of the track where mobile phone access is limited (Telstra has the best coverage), so always carry emergency equipment with you and notify someone of your course and expected finishing times.
Please also obey all information and notifications as directed by Parks, Forestry or other land owners / managers.
Tasmanian weather can be unpredictable at all times throughout the year. Check the weather forecast and the Bureau of Meteorology site for weather warnings before setting out for a training run and be prepared for all conditions.
