The following are samples of our most frequently asked questions. Should you have others, please feel free to
It says there are 10 stages but 'multiple' legs - what does this mean?
There are ten stages of the course, but the number of race legs is greater, given that:
- Stage 1 is completed four times (these loops may be split up between team members), and
- Stage 10 is completed by
all team members together
(with the option to leave one behind)
So the total number of 'legs' that each runner will complete is usually between three and four.
Does every team member
to run a certain number of legs?
No. So long as all legs are completed, you are free to divvy up them among teammates any way you like. The exception is Stage 10, which all team members complete together (with the option to leave one runner behind).
What do you mean when you say the course is "100+" kilometres?
The total distance that will be covered between all members of each team will be between roughly 115-120km. This range represents the difference between teams of four vs teams of five (taking into account the fact that all team members complete Stage 10 together).
to be made up of four or five runners?
No - 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 each team member will be running?
That depends entirely on how your team decides to break up the legs. A typical range for teams of 4 might be between 22-32km per person (less for teams of 5). However, teams are entirely free to divvy up the legs as they see fit.
How does the day work?
provides a full overview, complete with the Race Day itinerary, race stage details, the driving guide, a team planning kit, and accommodations info.
An updated version of the guide will be available in mid-June.
How do we get to the TAs? (Transition Areas)
Your race kit will include a driving guide with turn-by-turn directions on how to get between Transition Areas. Most are no more than 15 minutes apart.
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.
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 at or before dark. Details on how are provided in the race guide.
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.
Are pacers allowed?
No - pacers are not permitted, and race legs may not be split up between team members.
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 100+ kilometre 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 hosted by GoodLot Brewing, 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.
