The 45km course is run over rugged and at times isolated terrain. There are severe elevation changes that will test the climbing capacity of runners. There are rocky ascents and descents that will require caution and an ability of runners to use their hands to manoeuvre over rocks and rough terrain.
Any runner that attempts the Mt. Solitary traverse must bear in mind there are no exit points other than the course itself, nor any way for emergency services to quickly reach injured runners. Any injured runner will have to hike off Mt. Solitary to obtain medical assistance. We strongly recommend that this course is not attempted by someone transitioning to trail running.
We want to see you finish within the nine-hour time limit - that is why we have a qualifier
There will be time cuts on the course designed to have all 45 km runners completed within a nine (9) hour cut off. Whilst this time sounds generous for a 45 km course, the terrain and in particular, the traverse over Mt. Solitary will slow most runners. The minimum standards that are in place have been calculated to ensure that all entrants have the best possible chance of completing the 45 km course within the nine-hour time limit. Any entrant should be in similar physical condition as to the qualifier they are using.
Qualifiers: they must have been completed within the last three years
