Insurance

The event organisers have a public liability insurance policy to the value of 20 million dollars. This is a compulsory insurance policy in Australia for events that are organised on, or cross through, any form of government land/public place.

This, however, is not personal accident insurance for you! It is strongly recommended you have your own personal accident insurance.

It is a condition of entry that you must have ambulance cover. Unless you’re from Tasmania or Queensland, you’ll need to take this out (or ensure it is part of your private health cover). Here are some details. 

Unlike many mountain bike events, is NOT compulsory to also purchase a Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) Day Licence. You may choose to buy one of these if you choose and can do so here. This race is not directly affiliated with MTBA. You may already have suitable coverage through your private health insurance or superannuation.
