This event has been completedThe Buckley's Chance Off-trail running events will require athletes to negotiate natural obstacles such as dense sub-tropic jungle, steep ascents and descents of the 600m high volcanic craters' walls, and water crossings. Athletes should expect to crawl, climb, wade, jump and run through what can best be described as "God's own obstacle course".
All Off-trail events are "unsupported" meaning: Athletes will be called upon to carry all required hydration and nutrition themselves. If they run out of water or food they will need to source it from the natural environment, and ensure that it has been purified before consumption.
Athletes can expect to spend more than twice the amount of time on course than in an average trail running event.
