Our race headquarters and camping site, Perth Y Pia, will offer registration and kit checking as well as parking the night before. Medical staff and mountain medics will be on hand to keep you safe throughout the event, with checkpoints and water stations along the way. If needed, outside help can be found at the checkpoints, but no other points on the course – support crews, friends and family are more than welcome to attend however, we ask that runners take president overall and that noise and parking are kept to a minimum.
