PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS!!

These ‘on-the-day instructions’ tell kids what you have to do and where they have to go… and give parents a clear understanding of what will happen during the event. Number one...... don’t forget to register between 12:30pm & 3.00pm on Saturday afternoon in the Adventure Expo on the Lorne Foreshore. Super important and  where you will receive all your  goodies!

POINTERS FOR COMPETITORS – for the kids!

  • The course will be very well marked, you just have to follow the orange witches hats, red and white arrows and red / white plastic streamers tied to the trees. If you have any problems, just ask the officials in the bright orange vests
  • The course is approximately 4km long. This will take you between 20 minutes and 60 minutes to finish so make sure you pace yourself, try not to  sprint the whole way! It is OK to walk if you want to!
  • We encourage you to try and finish the whole course, but if you want to stop, just find a marshal wearing an orange vest and tell them that you need to stop.
  • A really important thing to remember...... it's about having fun out there, be patient, if there is someone in front of you and don’t push them out of the way!

THE START

  • Children will start in age group and gender,  The oldest group going off first and following age groups at 1 minute time intervals later.
  • This start line is located on the beach in front of the race expo area.
  • It is recommended that all children get to the start line no later than 3.15pm with the race starting at 3.30pm, we would hate for anybody to miss out on all this fun!

CLOTHING AND EQUIPMENT

  • Please attach the race number given to you at registration to the front of the t-shirt or top to be worn during the event. This race number must be clearly visible on the front of the outermost piece of clothing for the whole race!
  • We recommend that you leave spare clothing at the start / finish area so you can get changed afterwards
  • Participants must wear shoes for the entire event - even into the water
  • Participants do not have to wear the t-shirt we will give out at registration during the event – but of course you can if you want to!

THE COURSE

  • The course will be very well marked with orange witch’s hats, red and white arrows and red / white plastic streamers and tape so it is very easy to follow. There are also a number of marshals wearing orange vests located along the course to provide assistance and direction for everyone.
  • There are a number of different obstacles and challenges located around the marked course, all are designed for children, are supervised by a marshal and will not cause children any great difficulty.
  • Children can be accompanied around the course – it's all about  having a fun learning adventure.

AFTER THE RACE

  • Presentations will be held at approximately 4:30 pm from the stage next to the finish line.
  • A whole range of spot prizes and random presentations will be made to kids and drawn randomly ‘out of the hat’ at the presentations after the event. The event is designed around getting kids outdoors and active, and less about racing and competition, so we will not be timing the kids around the course and will not be awarding specific prizes to the first over the line in each category. Anybody can be a winner.

We hope you enjoy the Lorne Junior Survivor Challenge and remember that there are a lot of cool adventures that can be had outside!
