Entry

Crazy Kea Autumn Rogaine

The Course

The course map will be released to competitors at registration on the day of the event. Competitors abide by any out-of-bounds or compulsory routes on the map during the event and must race within the spirit of the competition.

Timing

The clock starts when you/your team punch the start at the beginning of the race. Your team will be given a NavLight timing tag at registration, you will use this to record your visit to each checkpoint (more info on how this works here). Your finish time is then recorded once you return from the course and punch the finish control.

Placings and Awards

Placing is based on the number of points collected. The person/team that collects the most points (minus any late penalty) will win. Teams with the same number of points will be ranked according to their finish time.

Responsibility

Each competitor enters under their own responsibility. They can judge whether they should participate in the event, start, and continue to the finish line. However the organisers reserve the right to stop a competitor or team from setting off or continuing in the event should it be deemed necessary.

Spectators

Spectators may view the race from any publically accessible location (including the event centre) and they are responsible for their own safety when doing so. Spectators may not go onto private land upon which the event is taking place without explicit permission from the race organisers. Special care should be taken when viewing from areas with possible hazards such as farm equipment, stock, water bodies, and cliffs. Young children should be supervised at all times.

Equipment

Teams must carry all compulsory equipment as per the gear list. Failure to do so will result in a penalty. There may be spot checks carried out by marshals on the course and before the event start.

Protests

Any protest must be filed with the race organiser within one hour of finishing the race. This will then be reviewed by the race organisers to determine the outcome.

Withdrawal

In the case of withdrawal of a team member or the entire team during the race, the team captain must inform the organisers by any means available in the shortest possible time. Failure to do so may result in a search and rescue operation. If a team member has to pull out of the rest of the team may continue.

Penalties

These will occur for any breach of rule or regulation and littering.

Disqualification

Unfair behaviour or behaviour that brings the race into disrepute, use of unauthorised equipment and abandonment of team members during the race.

Insurance

All participants compete at their own risk and the organisers will not accept liability for any personal accident or injury during the event. A liability waiver form must be signed by each team upon entering. Competitors should ensure that they are adequately insured.

Consideration for the land

To enable us to run this event we have sought permission from a number of private land owners and the council. It is important that we treat the land that we pass through with respect. To this end it is a requirement that all teams carry out their own rubbish. Any team seen to be littering will receive a penalty.

All gates must be left as they are found. If you choose to climb over a gate please do so at the hinge end.

Officials

Team members must respect instructions given by officials and must also follow their decisions regarding health, security and safety.
