IMPORTANT

Download and print an indemnity form for each team member.
Check on team list that all details for your team including category are correct - if not please contact us ASAP!

Please:

  • Ensure that all team members sign a separate indemnity form. Parents or guardians must sign for people under 18. Also provide registration number(s) of your car(s) at the Hash House.
  • Medical advice: All competitors should consider advising their partner of any pre-existing medical conditions (such as diabetes, asthma, epilepsy, susceptibility to anaphylaxis) that may require first-aid action on course. This should include a description of the symptoms, the required first-aid action, and the location in their bag of any medication (such as sugar, ventolin, epi-pen, anti-histamines).
  • Present your completed indemnity form at the registration desk.

How to get there

From Canberra city centre, follow Parkes Way and onto Anzac Parade. Turn right at the War Memorial onto Fairbairn Ave. Turn L at the second round about onto Northcote Drive. Follow the ACTRA signs and the road around to the right to the hash house.

Registration, Map Availability and Start Times

The event will commence by way of a mass start at 6PM sharp, with a final briefing at 5:50PM. Registration will open at 4PM. To register, you will need to bring:
  • first aid kit, so that it can be checked; see below for what it must contain
  • one completed indemnity form per team member.
Electronic scoring: As this event is also using the Navlight system of scoring, each team member will be issued with a wristband and tag upon registration.

You will also be given premarked maps, control descriptions, course setter's notes and a small copy of the map to be used as a flight plan. We recommend that you arrive at or soon after 4PM to allow enough time for final preparations and route planning. Each team must mark their intended route on the flight plan and hand it in before starting.

There will be a novice briefing at 5:40PM

  • If a Navlight punch has failed, record the three letter code visible inside the end of the punch.
