Welcome to the Mt Macedon Trail Runs 2012, this year sees Mt Macedon as the second Race of the VICTORIAN TRAIL RUNNING CHAMPIONSHIPS, the series consists of 4 races with distances ranging from 6km to 100km
Rules subject to change pending series entrant numbers following is a draft of how the system will work.
System points from race 1 at Maroondah Will be available soon
How will you earn points?
Points will be allocated pending the position you finish in the event.
How many races do I have to compete in to be eligible for the series?
To try to be fair to everyone at this stage your best 3 results will count, however you must be present on the day of the Tan race to be eligible to win, you don't have to race the Tan, therefore your results from Race 1, 2 and 3 will be your best 3 results.
Our logic for this that you may get injured having entered the 4 races early or just cant make all 4 events on short notice in 2012. We also understand that the Tan is not a typical trail event, but it is the most accessible for runners, supporters and public and is therefore the feature event for 2012.
How will prizes be awarded?
Series Male and Female will be crowned trail running champion, they will receive cash and prizes to be confirmed.
There will be individual race trophies in all except the short series awarded to place getters along with cash and other prizes.
Rules and Regulations
All participants must obey the instructions of the race director, event representative or Parks Victoria employees
Postponement / Cancellation
Should the weather or other conditions outside the control of the race director prevent the race from proceeding on the
scheduled date, the event will be postponed to a future date, refunds will be not be available if the event is forced to be cancelled. A future date will be organised with Parks Victoria where possible and your entry will carry over to that date only, no refunds available if you cant make the rescheduled date.
The course will be marked, and all efforts will be made to make the course easy to follow.
We suggest each participant make themselves familiar with the course, a little knowledge just may come in very handy.
However we recommend you carry a map in case you get off course, the map will help you get back to the right place.
Maps will be available for printing from the website and the final pre race briefing notes.
