Pacing

This race will allow pacers for 100 mile participants only, who will be able to join their runner from Esk. Pacers will need to register independantly of their runner in order to meet insurance needs and there will be a cost associated. Pacers will be afforded the same care at CPs and throughout the course as participants. Eg, nutrition, hydration, medical care, etc.


The course

The route runs a complete 100 miles from Wulkuraka on the outskirts of Ipswich, to Yarraman, north west of the city.

 

 

Note: both maps show an unofficial bypass between Toogoolawah and Moore which will be used in this year's event for both the 50 and 100 miles. This section of the BVRT is scheduled to be completed this year but not likely in time for the BVRT 100. There may be scope for crews to meet with runners between these two points, but at this time, assume this won't be the case and provision for the section accordingly.
