PLANNING

WHAT TO BRING

We strongly recommend long pants, or leggings and long socks to make your course comfortable and provide protection. Running or hiking shoes are sufficient to attempt the course. Keep clothing light, as you are guaranteed to warm up during the course.

EVENT DETAILS

For those who have smashed our True Grit 10-12km courses we wanted an even bigger challenge so we took it to the next level. The Aussie Titles is a 24hr Obstacle Course event. Basically, our course will be open from 2pm on the Saturday afternoon to 2pm on the Sunday afternoon. That’s 24 hours of True Grit obstacle racing. It’s not for the faint hearted.
As long as you want it to be. The event is lap based with each lap approx. 11km. Each time you hit the course and finish, that’s one lap. Your aim, or your team’s aim, is to get out there for as many laps as your body can handle. So there is a start line, but you create the finish line depending how you tolerate the gruelling course. You just keep Gritting your teeth for the 24hr period or until your body physically can no longer go on.
The endurance event is open to all challengers and has solo and multiple team formats that make the concept of racing 24 hours palatable for most fitness levels. Racers are invited to challenge the course solo, in a gruelling and mentally demanding battle, or to register for the event as part of a two or four person team. Only one racer is allowed on course at a time, so the option is open to competitors to hit the course as hard as they like, then rest and enjoy the company of likeminded friends while waiting for team mates to return from their lap. Strategy will play a major part in how well a team performs and it is open to teams to take it as easy and friendly, or as hard and as serious, as they choose.
At the start of every lap you, or the team-mate heading out on course, must transition through a designated area in the start/finish area (Pit Area) to indicate that you or they have left the Pit Area. At the finish of every lap you must return to that area to indicate you have completed a lap. This will be a simple and seamless process. At the finish of every lap you have two choices; continue on and enter another consecutive lap, or pass on the active racing to a team mate. There will be an ankle timing ‘baton’ item that will be wearable and exchangeable between teammates. This ‘baton’ indicates the person who is ‘active’ on course. Solo competitors will wear this for the duration of the event. Teams must pass this item on to whoever is leaving for the course inside the start shoot in view of the Marshall. If you do not have this item on display at the registration tent, you cannot have the finish of your lap marked off. Do not forget to pass this item on to whoever heads out on course.
Yes, participants can stop to have a break, either by pitting in The Pit or at a warming station out on course. It is up to each Gritter to determine when they should take a break, depending on their body’s needs and their race strategy. It might be a solo decision, or the team might have to develop strategy to get the most out of each member throughout the event. It is key to note that participants will only be allowed to enter The Pit after finishing a complete lap. If participants enter The Pit any other time, they will be disqualified. Similarly, there is only one way back out on course. Any other entry to the course will result in a disqualification. The format of the Enduro allows individuals that enjoy extreme endurance to fulfil their needs! So there will be some men and women who literally do not stop for the full 24-hour period. At the very same time, people who either are not interested in such extreme levels of endurance, or would simply prefer to approach the event with a more relaxed attitude, can do so and enjoy the entire process with a group of friends. You can choose to run through the night, or decide you would prefer to have a sleep and get back into the event come the morning. All options are open. The answers to these questions will form your strategy for the event.
Food vendors will be set up in the Festival area (adjacent to the Pits area) and will have food and coffee for purchase up until around 10.30pm, opening again at 7am. Please note, there is no EFTPOS or mobile coverage available onsite. It is advisable to bring food with you also if you are racing, and is best to test out your food and nutrition strategy prior to the event in your training sessions. A good nutrition plan is vital to keep you energised and hydrated.
The event finishes at the 24-hour mark. If you are part way on course when the 24 hours ends, that lap will not count to your total. So, factoring in if you can squeeze another lap in will be critical in your strategy. The winner will be the person completes the most laps. In the event that people complete the same number of laps, the winner is the person who finishes that final lap first.
Support/pit crew passes are available for $10 each. Your support/pit crew will be able to register online ahead of the event. Passes will be by way of a wristband and must be worn at all times. Your team and pit crew are all allowed access into the pit area on a 24hr basis. Wristbands will be allocated to registered support/pit crew when you check in at the event.
