The following are samples of our most frequently asked questions. Should you have others, please feel free to
Does every team member
to run four legs each?
No. So long as the 16 legs are completed, you are free to divvy up them among teammates any way you like.
Does each team member
to run Stages 1 and 10?
No. As long as there are four completions of both Stages 1 and 10, we leave it up to you as to who does them. They are intentionally short legs, so it does make sense that both would be run by each team member, but it is not mandatory.
Can I run the race solo?
Unfortunately no. This particular event has not been formatted to accommodate solo racers. That said, we will be looking at future events down the road that would be designed for soloists to take part.
Does my team
to be made up of four runners?
No. Four is the maximum, but we will allow teams to compete with three or two runners if they wish. However, the full team entry fee applies no matter how many racers are on the team.
Do all team members have to be present at Check-In?
Yes, each team member must be at Check-in
to Race Start. Those racers who are at Check-In are those who will be permitted on the racecourse - no exceptions.
What is the total distance that I will be running?
That depends entirely on how your team decides to break up the legs. If a team were to split the 16 legs into 4 legs each for all four team members, the typical range would be between 22-32km per person. However, teams are entirely free to divvy up the legs as they see fit.
How does the day work?
The race guide will provide a full overview, complete with the Race Day itinerary, race stage details, the driving guide, a team planning kit, and accommodations info. The guide will be posted here in April.
How do we get to the TAs? (Transition Areas)
The race guide that will be posted in April will include a driver guide, which will provide turn-by-turn directions on how to get between Transition Areas.
Can spectator vehicles go to the Transition Areas?
Unfortunately no. Only one vehicle per team may be permitted into the Transition Areas. Teams will be issued a parking permit which will be checked at TAs. This rule will be strictly enforced.
It says there are 10 stages but 16 legs - I'm confused!
There are ten stages of the course, but since both Stage 1 and Stage 10 are completed four times each (ideally once per team member), the total number of "legs" is 16.
Does the race go through the night like other relay events?
No - the course is formatted such that all team members will be at the final transition before dark. Details on how are provided in the race guide that will be posted in April.
Will there be cut-off times?
Yes, but they won't have any impact on a team's results. Teams that do not make a cut-off will be permitted to run stages simultaneously. Details on how are provided in the race guide that will be posted in April.
Are pacers allowed?
Pacers are not permitted, and race legs may not be split up between team members. Only one runner may complete a race leg at a time.
What's included with our entry?
Trail Fix entries include all the standard relay run features such as race souvenirs, race bibs, electronic timing, a post-race BBQ and beer garden, finish line photos, not to mention a fully and very thoroughly marked 110km point-to-point racecourse!
Did you say beer?
Yes! Our finish line site at Albion Hills is where you'll be based for Stages 9 and 10, and it will feature a beer garden as well as lots of open grassy areas to set up your final transition space and chill with your teammates and fellow Fix-ers. Albion Hills just also happens to also be a fantastic place to camp - details on booking sites either pre or post-race will be included in the race package.
