What can I expect?
If you think mud, hills, rough and rocky terrain, dirty waters, things to climb, things to squeeze through, things to crawl under, and other things to slide down and… oh, did we mention mud? You’ll be laughing a lot and having a blast of a time!
Do I have to sign a waiver?
All participants must read and sign the Waiver form online (when registering for the event on "Active Network") and bring it with them on the day of the event – NO WAIVER, NO RACE, NO EXCEPTIONS!
There will also be blank waivers available on the day.
I paid for the registration protection, can I get a refund?
If you paid for registration protection and are unable to attend the event for a reason covered by the Registration Protection offer, you may contact Booking Protect to file a refund application and receive compensation. All refund applications are handled by Booking Protect and NOT by Centaur Outdoor Events.
You can submit a refund application via Booking Protect’s easy-to-use online portal: Click Here
Please make sure prior to registering that you can totally commit to participating!
There will be NO refunds, but we can transfer you to another event on a future date.
By registering for this event you accept that the organisers reserve the right to cancel or postpone (if possible) the event at their discretion due to, but not limited to, adverse weather conditions, terrorism, acts of God, insufficient participants, safety issues or any other reason the organisers deem reasonable. If the event needs to be rescheduled, registrations will be honoured for the next event.
Do I need to be fit for this event?
A good level of basic fitness will help. If you can walk at least 8km, climb over and under some obstacles, this will get you around the course. You won't be penalised if you skip an obstacle! You’re here to have a muddy awesome experience – do it at your own pace!
What should I wear?
Enclosed shoes MUST be worn at all times – running shoes are ideal – spikes and bare feet are NOT PERMITTED.
This year's event is a VIKING theme, and we encourage you to dress up for battle!
As you will be going through a lot of mud, we recommend that you wear somewhat ‘disposable’ shoes and clothing, as they are going to get trashed!
Is the course marked?
Yes, each obstacle is named, and your friendly volunteers will also be there to point you in the right direction.
Am I covered by insurance for participating in this event?
All Centaur Outdoor Events are covered by a Public Liability Insurance policy, specifically for each event.
We recommend that you have a Personal Accident Insurance policy in place prior to the event, as Public Liability Insurance does not cover personal illness or accidents.
Are there any safety officers on the course?
Yes, sure are! We will have medical support staff all with first aid qualifications, plus a tonne of happy and enthusiastic volunteers!
What happens if a participant gets injured?
If you or another participant get seriously injured and require medical attention, please stay calm and wait until a Volunteer or Safety Officer arrives to assist you.
Are there any prizes awarded?
This event is a challenge not a race. All participants are winners here!
You may want to challenge fellow workmates, a certain individual or team for bragging rights, but that’s up to you!
You will get a Suck It Up Buttercup Finishers medal on completion of the course!
Can people come and support me?
Yes, of course! Encourage all friends, relatives and co-workers to come along on the day and cheer you over the line.
There will be plenty of places around the course to watch, and some ‘funtastic’ activities for everyone to get involved.
Where can I park my vehicle?
Parking will cost $5 per vehicle, and is payable by CASH ONLY on entry to the venue – please have the correct amount ready so as not to cause undue delays to the traffic coming in behind you. Volunteers will direct all vehicles to the parking area. Once your car is parked you will be given a sticker to place on your front windscreen to identify you have paid. Vehicles leaving the venue must not exceed 10km as there will be people still competing, be patient please!
Is there accommodation available?
There is no accommodation available at the Bago Vineyards, however, you might like to stay at either Port Macquarie or Wauchope and make a weekend of it!
Are there any showers after the event?
You bet! We wouldn’t let you go home looking like that! We will have a wash-down area waiting just for you.
Is there somewhere I can put my belongings?
There will be no bag drop at this venue – your vehicle will be very close to the course, so we recommend that you keep most of your belongings locked in your vehicle.
We will, however, have an envelope drop area. You will be able to seal your Drivers Licence and car keys in an envelope, and provide a password to enable you to collect it at the end of the day. All care will be taken, but no responsibility will be accepted for lost personal items.
Is there mobile phone reception?
There sure is! But we don’t recommend taking your phone on course unless you carry it in a zip lok bag… again, all care will be taken, but no responsibility will be accepted for lost personal items.
Will the event still go ahead if it’s raining?
Are you kidding? The wetter the better! Mud… glorious mud!
If the weather conditions get so bad that the participants, volunteers, spectators or anybody else involved on the day may be at risk, then the event will be cancelled. See event policy for details.
Is there food and drinks to purchase?
Bago Vineyards will have tea and coffee, as well as ice-blocks for sale, and they will also be bringing in a mobile food van. It is always a good idea to bring along your own snacks and supplies, though. PLEASE NOTE that Bago Vineyards does not have EFTPOS facilities – CASH ONLY please.
Are there an ATM machines?
