Now in its fifth year, the WTF58 continues to grow in popularity as its reputation spreads throughout the Australian trail running community.
Entries for the WTF58 will open at 10AM, 13th January 2020 (Australian Eastern Standard Time).
All runners in WTF58 need to have their mandatory gear checked at the time of collecting their race pack. If the runner does not have the required mandatory gear, then they will not be able to compete in the event. Please read through the gear list, of what mandatory gear is required to be able to competed in the event. Please noted that there will be minimal water stations along the trail, so you will need to take enough water to get through the trail one way safely.
The cutoff time for the WTF57 is 8hrs 30min.
To receive a medal and a time, you need to finish in this time or less.
There is no requirement to have completed any other particular event in order to participate in the WTF58. You are required to be at least 18 years old. You also need to be an experienced trail runner and must be sufficiently skilled and trained to undertake the event. The course is very tough and demanding with remote sections that can result in slower first aid / rescue response times. It is a combination of fire trail and narrow walking tracks including some very steep sections on dirt and on rock and sections that are rough under foot. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fit enough to complete the event. Ensure that you are in good health and that you do not have any illness that will hinder your ability to complete the event. It is your responsibility to monitor your health and condition during the event and to withdraw from the event if you are no longer fit enough to continue. Please read and understand the Indemnity & Release Form. You do NOT need to print and sign this form as you will electronically sign this when you enter online.
The organiser of the Event, Whitsunday Running Club, has public liability insurance cover. This does not include personal accident insurance for competitors. We recommend that you arrange your own personal accident insurance, ambulance cover and income protection insurance before participating in the Event to cover any unforeseen personal costs you may incur due to ambulance trips, medical expenses or time off work due to injuries sustained whilst participating in the Event. International participants should take out travel insurance that provides cover for ultra-trail running events.
