The rules of the Trek

Team composition: each team may have up to four scoring walkers (can be any mix of male/female) although up to two additional walkers may also join but they will not score points. Each team needs at least one support driver. No additional walkers will be allowed to join a team once the event has started.

How the points are scored: the rules have been designed with the intention of keeping everyone involved for as long as possible. There are various categories of points:

To be eligible to win this event you MUST hand in a Sponsorship Pledge Form at registration

Team captains / solo walkers should hand in a sheet indicating the realistic amount of money you have raised when they register.

To be eligible a team member or solo walker must confirm the status of their team/themselves by signing the marshal’s form at each checkpoint as they leave.

It is your responsibility to ensure your team/you check in and out each checkpoint with the marshal. We can only accept what is marked on the sign in/out sheets when tallying the final results.
