Comfortable athletic clothing - like shorts, running shoes and cap
Water bottle (we will have a refill station)
Raincoat – if it rains, we race and get wet
Picnic for team and family supporters for after XRACE
Your own medication if required
You will be provided with an XRACE t-shirt which must be worn during the competition. You must also wear the provided timing chip (refer below).
XRACE challenges may involve getting wet, mud and physical exertion, so we recommend you dress appropriately in old clothes and covered toe shoes.
Do not race with electronic devices including keys. These may get wet.
Transponder will be available to pick up on race day. It looks like a small credit card with four holes punched in it.
Both parent and child must wear their own individual transponder. It must be worn on the shoe and nowhere else. Failure to correctly wear your transponder will result in your team not being recorded a time. There will be cable ties available at the transponder pick up table to fasten them to shoes without laces if needed.
SHOES ON AT THE FINISH
This is critical. Shoes must be on as you cross the finish line otherwise your team's time crossing the finish line may not be recorded.
Compulsory challenges are challenges that we tell you about ahead of your race. This allows teams to learn new skills and have fun together prior to your race day.
Learn about your compulsory challenges for 2019 here.
At the finish line, we will have large water containers for you to refill your drink bottles. But, unlike other events we do not provide paper cups.
We are trying to set the standard in reducing our event waste footprint.
There are no rubbish bins onsite. Please take all waste away and dispose with consideration – thanks for this!
(TIP: use your race pack bag as a rubbish bag).
Each XRACE uses different wave starts to help us reduce congestion when you arrive at challenges. Scroll down to find your wave start below. We suggest you write your departure time on your hand so you don’t forget it.
We release between 10 and 30 teams every 60 seconds – this is called a wave.
So, if the race starts at 9:00 A.M and your team is wave 12 your start time will be 9:12 A.M. Collect your transponders in the registration area, tie them on your shoes, then make your way to the start line in time for your wave departure time. The announcer will call up waves by number into the start house where you will be joined by other teams in your wave.
There will be a clock displayed at the start line that will show official race time. The race clocks are considered to be official time and will be set to run at the same time as shown on your phone.
(TIP: TO FIND YOUR NAME, CLICK 'CTRL' AND 'F' THEN TYPE YOUR NAME).
Leaving the start house before your departure time = no recorded time
Leaving the start house at your allocated time = recorded time
Leaving the start house after your allocated time = recorded time
