A few of the major changes we'll be implementing include:
New Team of 5 Category
Teams now have the option to race either as a group of four or five. The new five's division will feature the full range of category options that four's do, including both open and masters for all-male, all-female and coed teams.
Stage 10 to be Completed as a Team
The last stage in Albion Hills will now be run by all team members together rather than individually, such that teams can be confident that their final legs will be done in daylight. We'll be tweaking the Stage 9 section in Albion a little as well to complement this change.
New Flagging Tape Colours
We heard you loud and clear! The white and red flagging tape design we opted for this year was not sufficiently visible at various points, so we'll be testing new colour options for 2020. We'll also be investing in new signage that will be positioned at key junctions to direct runners back if they happen to take a wrong turn.
Finally, we'll be working on some fun course changes with our landowner partners in the months ahead - more details to come!
