Age Limits

To enter the 20km or 36km runs on the Sunday you must be 18+

There is no age restriction on the 2km or 8km runs on the Saturday.  But remember that it's not a child-minding facility.  If your child needs supervision then please enter and supervise them.

Upper age limit is 99. Because if you're too old for Lego, then you're too old for this.

Aid Stations

Current plans:

Saturday 8km run.  Drink Stations at  Fyans Creek Track just in from Tandara Road, Brambuk, Tandara Road, and the finish line.

Sunday 20km run.
  Wonderland Car Park, Sundial Car Park, Grampians Tourist Road crossing at North West corner of Lake Bellfield, Brambuk and the finish line.  See "The Trails" page for more detail.

Sunday 36km run.  Aid stations at Wonderland Car Park, Sundial Car Park, Mount Rosea Car Park, Borough Huts Campground, Lake Bellfield Road near intersection of Tunnel Road, Brambuk and the finish line.
See "The Trails" page for more detail.

36km runners if you wish to have special need delivered to  the Mt Rosea Car Park and/or Borough Huts aid stations you can create a "drop bag" clearly marked with your name and race number.

Gels (for 20km and 36km runners) will be VFuel gels.

Sportsdrink, for all events, will be VFuel.

This is a Trail Run, primarily through National Parks. Cups will NOT be used or provided for the long runs on the Sunday.

It will be necessary for those runners to have some hydration device/bottle/camelbak/fuelbelt to carry water with them.

Ambulance

The Ambulance service is not a free service in Victoria. It's your responsibility to check your health cover and ensure you are covered for ambulance rides in the case of an emergency. To arrange cover with Ambulance Victoria, visit http://www.ambulance.vic.gov.au/

Bag Minding

For bags you want to leave while you are running, (as opposed to Special Needs/Drinks which there's a listing for lower down), please premark your items with your racenumber and leave them in the bag minding area in Centenary Hall near the Start/Finish line in Halls Gap.

Car Parking

Halls Gap is a small country town.  No charge for parking.  How close can you park?  Crystal ball says that the earlier you arrive, the closer you park.

Changing between Event/Distances

Entrants already in a longer distance event can change to a shorter distance event for no charge.  The only exception being that after July 16th 36km runners changing to the 20km need to pay a $10- decrease distance fee to cover a new race-bib and timing chip. This can be done by using the Merchandise/Extras Facility and paying the Distance Decrease option.
Email infoATwonderlandrunDOTcomDOTau and we'll make the necessary changes and re-issue race-bib/chip.

Entrants already entered in the 20km event wanting to change to the 36km event can do so by emailing us of their intentions and paying the $22- increase distance fee online. Use the "Extras/Merch" Button at the top of the page to pay the change fee.

Entrants already entered in the 2km event wanting to change to the 8km event can do so by emailing us of their intentions and paying the $22- increase distance fee online.
Use the "Extras/Merch" Button at the top of the page to pay the change fee.

Entrants already entered in a Saturday event (2km or 8km) wanting to change to a Sunday event (20km or 36km) are advised the easiest way to achieve it is to withdraw from the Saturday event (see R for Refunds) and enter the Sunday event of their choosing. The requested details between the two registration facilities are not the same, hence no smooth method in this situation.

Remember the qualification requirements for the runs are different and you may need to edit your original registration to provide details for a relevant event you ran in. Follow the 'EditYourReg' link near the top of your original registration email to edit your data.

Course Measurement

Course is measured and certified to PDA standards.

Cups

2km & 8km Saturday Run: Yes, but please put them in the bins provided.

20km and 36km Sunday EventsNone. Zip. Nil. Nada. These are trail runs, not road races; mostly through beautiful National and State Parks. Aid stations will have water, sports drink etc. in 25 litre plastic cubes/drums with taps on the bottom. You can refill your bottles, camelbak, fuelbelt or whatever you brought to carry fluids at these points. (Water carrying device is mandatory equipment.)

Curry-oke


So you ran in Wonderland? So you think you are a legend? You think you can match it on the mic? PROVE IT!!!
Wonderland's curry night is back again in 2018 with Karaoke – Curry-oke!
Tickets cover food in a buffet manner – there is no guarantee of singing quality and no compensation for scorched taste buds!!! Curry-Oke Registrations.
Two Seatings. 5pm-7pm and 7pm-11pm
Spirit of Punjab. 161-163 Grampians Rd. Halls Gap. Sunday Night. August 26th.

Cut-Off Times

20km course - four hours.
36km course - 8 hours. (Allows for exceptionally bad weather. Under normal conditions qualified 36km competitors will likely finish under 7hrs.)  Please bear in mind the degree to which these courses climb and that parts of the course are very technical.

36km runners who haven't made the split point (where the 20 and 36km runs split off in different directions about 7.5km into the run) by 2hrs into the event will be directed down the 20km course.

36km runners who have not left Borough Huts aid station by 11:30am will be withdrawn from the run.  They will be asked to phone for a lift back to Halls Gap. (Or if lucky might be able to score one off a volunteer on the aid station, once packup is done.)

Cutoff times are enforced due to permits only lasting so long, and to look after our lovely volunteers who are putting in a lot of hours to help runners.  We don't want to try their patience. (OK we'll also admit that the traffic management on the road crossings costs a bomb and having entrants on course after the cutoffs gets really spendy too.)

Overall time cutoffs mean that entrants finishing after those times will receive a medal, but will not have their time recorded in the official results.

Dangers
Slipping/Falls. Probably the number one cause of possible injury on the Wonderland Run course.  Go super cautious on the rock sections.  Taking a bad tumble does not make for a fast time. The first half of the 20km course and the first 15km of the 36km course are areas of particular concern.

Getting lost. The course will be well marked, but fatigued runners tend to develop tunnel vision. Keep your wits about you and keep an eye out for orange markings/ribbons/cones. Maps will be provided to participants, but familiarizing yourself with the course before hand could save you a lot of time on the day. Bring a mobile phone on the Telstra network.  Face facts that some providers (like Vodaphone) absolutely suck outside major metro areas.

The map on the back of your race-bib will have mobile phone numbers for the organizers and volunteers. We may be able to help orientate you.

If you are a Garmin or Suunto wearer learn how it use its features and learn how to retrace your steps using the map facility. "The Trails" page of this website has links to downloadable route files.

ESTA Markers:

Please keep an eyeout for the location of these green marker signs. If you or a fellow participant has a problem that is serious enough to require a "000" call then knowing the three letter, three digit sequence on the nearest sign will greatly speed up assistance gettting in.

"Emergency Markers enable the exact location of a Triple Zero (000) caller to be accurately identified. Markers are more than just signs. They are supported by GPS co-ordinates and navigational data that assist in getting emergency services to the public with minimal delay."

ESTA

Obviously you could be quite some distance from the nearest marker, however if you call race organizers and can tell us how many kilometers into the run you are, we will have access to maps that help identify the number of the nearest ESTA marker.

Entrants Lists

Will my buddies/rivals/enemies be there? For the 36km/20km the link will go here.

For the 8km/2km the link will go here.
(Those are also useful links for those who can't remember if they entered.)


Evacuation from Course

Evacuation of injured runners.
There is no magic.  This is a remote location.  Much of it some distance from roads or fire trails.
Suspected broken ankle.
The most common injury where entrants request assistance in leaving the course is the suspected broken ankle. (90% of the time it is badly 'rolled'/sprained and is ligament/tendon damage with no fracture.)

Once over the initial shock, the best option (in the remote areas) is to start hobbling out assisted, heading towards the most accessible exit point. Generally downhill if you have a choice. 


ParksVic have also advised that we'll have access to the "TrailRider" shown at left.

In
situations closer to fire trails then Parks Victoria are able to assist with getting you out, but you may be waiting a while.

Be aware that whatever method is used, it will take a long time.  Hence the mandatory Gear list below.


First Aid Providers

Colbrow  First Aid service is being used.

We also pay for an ambulance on stand-by but the Govt/Union bureaucracy that it is means that despite paying a four figure sum our only means of communication with them is very indirectly through 000.  You'll see them floating around the course on race day.

Crosses on some peoples race numbers mean they have level 2 or higher First Aid Qualifications.  If you are in a bad way appeal to them, if you have a widdle gwaze then leave them alone.  They are racing too.

Everyone should help a runner in serious trouble.

Gear Suggestions:

Read the mandatory gear list for the 36km run.  Much of it is relevant for the 20km run, particularly for run-walkers.

Handheld bottles not recommended due to the amount of times you might want to use your hands on the 20km and 36km courses, for the same reason...

Gloves are recommended for the 20km and 36km courses.

Shoes - If your trail shoes have tread that looks like footy boots don't use them.  Too little contact on the rocky surfaces that get pretty slippy in rain.  So far we're thinking less chunky trail treads or fresh road shoes are the go. (Fresh because then the tread edges are still 'sharpish'.)

Gear - Mandatory List for 20km run:

Mobile phone.
Compression bandage.
Capacity to carry 500mls water.

Gear
- Mandatory List for 36km run:

We are not suggesting this equipment will be something you will need whilst running (although the gloves and THIR may be useful whilst running), but if you fall and cannot run or walk out, you may be waiting hours to be rescued. These items will keep you warmer, drier, less hungry and could also potentially save a trail buddies life.
 
•             Gloves – Merino wool or synthetic – something that will keep your hands warm.
•             Beanie or THIR (Noggin tube fabric thing) www.thir.com.au
•             Emergency blanket - lightweight silver type is fine.
•             Long sleeve thermal top NOT compression wear. Merino or synthetic is fine.
•             Compression bandage min 7.5cm wide x 2.3m long unstretched
•             Waterproof jacket. I.E. jacket must be waterproof, windproof and to a level that will actually keep you dry and safe. We don’t care how much it costs BUT it must be rated as such to help save your life if something terrible happens. Suggested is a level of over 20,000mm hydrostatic head waterproof rating. Accepted will be anything from 11000 upwards but be aware if the weather turns bad this will only keep you dry for a limited period of time! Anything under 11000 is unacceptable. 6000-11000mm is only rainproof and waterproof under light pressure. If it rains in them mountains it won’t be light! (Think about being stuck for several hours before you can be gotten out.)
•             400 calories of food
•             Mobile Phone. Telstra works best
•             Capacity to carry 500mls water minimum
•             Whistle for gaining attention to your situation.
 
Anyone who crosses the line without the mandatory gear will be disqualified from the race and will not have a time recorded. Anyone who podiums will forfeit their place and time also. This is not us being big meanies – we just want everyone to be safe and get home to their loved ones!

Where do you need to carry the gear? Well, conditions being awesome on the day – you might not need to carry anything more than a phone, a compression bandage and capacity to hold 500mls water. We would require the remainder of your gear to be available for you at the car park before the Mt Rosea climb. Best case scenario, you don’t have to take it, middle case scenario, you have to carry it over Mt Rosea, worst case scenario, you have to carry it all the way.
** Leaving this up to show one of the places where the mandatory gear ruling gets announced**

Saturday 26 Aug 2017!!

Mandatory Gear Ruling.  Due to wet and cold conditions, and an already slippery course, 36km runners are required to take all the mandatory gear with them from the start.
20km runners are strongly advised to look at the 36km gear list and carry/wear the items on it.

Nutrition

VFUEL sports drink and water will be available at Major Aid Stations. 
VFUEL Gels will be available at Major Aid Stations for the longer Sunday events. (Not at water drops, and possibly not at temporary or minor aid stations.)

Phone Coverage

This is a real issue. Some carriers have very limited coverage.  Telstra is generally best even if their 'service' is terrible.
Remember, you can often text where it's not possible to sustain a phone call.

 Put Halls Gap into these phone coverage interactive maps to get an idea of coverage on the course. 
http://www.telstra.com.au/mobile/maps/mcm/wholesale.html

https://www.mobilemaps.net.au/3G/

The first model indicates pretty much no coverage on the Wonderland Range.  Both models indicate no coverage on Mount Rosea.  My experience using Telstra is that there's patchy coverage on the Wonderland Range and next to none on Mount Rosea.

For those who don't have a current qualifying time you can still enter if you think you can run a qualifier before August 20th 2018.  The online entry procedure will give scope to write a short note re your ability and plan to run a qualifier.


Please later email judgenjury76(AT)gmail(DOT)com once you have run a qualifier stating where, when and what time you ran.  (With link to official results.) People who have paid entry will have until  August 20th to qualify and notify us of that qualification time/event and link. 
 

Qualification enquiries not answered by the above... email: judgenjury76(AT)gmail(DOT)com. Yes, you do need to interpret that.

If you're looking for events to qualify at:
http://www.eventlist.com.au/  . Don't just consider the biggies... Google is your friend.

For Melbourne runners one of the cheapest places to qualify is...
July Sri Chinmoy Princes Park Marathon, 30km, Half M.

If you want to do some reconnaissance in the area then Run The Gap. in May is a good option for qualifying for the Wonderland 20.

**Special Note About Trailwalker: (And other BushwalkingWithRaceNumbers events.) Trailwalker events can be used as qualifiers, but your Trailwalker time needs to demonstrate that you can cover ground at a speed sufficient to complete Wonderland Run within the cutoff times.
***Special Note about Half Marathon qualifying times.  It is sub 2:15. Not 2:25-but-I-had-to-stop-twice-to-go-to-the-toilet-so-really-this-is-a-sub-2:15.  If your toileting needs are such that you have to go that frequently then you are going to have go more times during Wonderland Run and not less.

Road Crossings

There are several road crossings. All on the Grampians Tourist Road.

Speed limit reduction and warning signs will be employed, but be aware you may be delayed a minute.  Beware of cars.  Traffic Controllers will endeavour to assist you crossing, but you should stay alert.

Rules
  1. Obey all Parks Victoria rules when in the Parks.
  2. The event will not proceed if there is a code red fire warning for the day. It is illegal to enter the park on a Code Red fire warning day.
  3. Leaving the Course. Entrants who leave the course during the event eg. for toilet stop, getting lost or meeting up with support people; must re-enter the course at the point they left the course. Lost entrants may use any legal method to get back to the course, but must re-enter where they left and resume running from that point.
  4. Withdrawing from the race. Any entrant withdrawing from the race must notify race officials that they have done so. Mobile phone numbers will be provided on the map given to participants, or use the numbers in the "Contact Us" section of the website.
  5. Support Crew. Runners can have supporters meet them on course with food, drink, vaseline etc., so long as those supporters give way to runners, and obey all park rules.
  6. Using a mountain bike to support runners risks them and other people. Don't even think about it.
  7. Obey the direction of Race Officials and Volunteers. Entrants ignoring marshals at road crossings will be immediately disqualified.
  8. Be courteous to all you encounter on the course. This includes volunteers, traffic controllers and other users of the trail.

  12. No I-pods, MP3 players etc. to be used. There are too many single track sections, some road crossings and other runners to be aware of. 
  13. If you are even mildly asthmatic then a puffer is mandatory equipment.
Rubbish

We are fortunate to be allowed access to the trail to run our event, so please make sure you leave no trace of having been there. Take all rubbish with you or risk disqualification.

Special Drinks/Needs Items delivery.

20km Run. NO.

36km Run. Items can be available at Rosea CarPark (just past 9km in) and Borough Huts Aid station. (21km)

You will need to give us your items on Friday 4pm to 6pm or Saturday 11:30am to 2pm and 2:30pm to 5pm at Centenary Hall near the Start/Finish area.  We won't be accepting them on Sunday morning.

We supply the tags. You supply the bags. but pre-marking your items will save you and us some time on the morning of the event.

Sweepers

Sweepers will be deployed onto the course with the aim of ensuring there's no one left on the course unaccounted for. If you leave the trail at any time, please leave your pack on the trail so the sweeper doesn't go past you.

Timing Chips

We will be using a disposable chip system that is stuck to the back of your race number.  The system is very reliable, but reliability is aided by wearing your race number lower rather than higher.

Trail Marking

Will comply with Parks Victoria requests. Markers on the bush trails will be in orange ribbon. Additional signage will be present at key intersections.

Km markers to help you know where you are on the course.

Some of the stuff you'll be seeing to help you get around the course.  Plus lots of orange ribbons on pegs to give you reassurance that you're on the right track.
       

Transfers of Entries.

No. We don't do it.  It's a big administrative hassle getting hold of the new entrants full details, emergency contacts, medical information... which may have details they don't want the original entrant to know, getting them to click the waiver, insurance etc. etc.  Given that we refund the highest  percentage of entry fees to the latest date of any major running event then please withdraw your entry and ask your friend to enter themselves.
Sorry, we also don't transfer your entry to Two Bays, or the next Wonderland. (See R for Refunds... you next best bet.)

Vision

Long term is to use more of the Grampians Peaks Trail as sections open up and connect to the Wonderland area.

Volunteers

If you're available, we'd love to have you.  Volunteers receive a warm inner glow, a THIR (headwear) and can enter a subsequent Wonderland Run or Two Bays Trail Run without paying entry fees. (Please ask for the super secret entry code prior to entering that subsequent event.)

Seriously it's volunteers who make running events possible, and most have an enjoyable day doing it. Please give it your consideration.

To check what roles are available please email....
mattybellprofessionalATgmaiDOTcom


Wave Starts

Due to the narrow and technical nature of some of the early sections of the course wave starts are possible in the 2km, 20km and 36km events.
If you have ever been on a podium, or stand even a small chance of being on it, then please allocate yourself to the first wave.
While everyone will get an accurate time, winning positions are decided by which bodies got over the line first.
3 minute gaps between waves for 2018.

Weather - What will it be?

We have no more access to any weather forecasting data than the BOM. Look for Ararat and Stawell to get an idea of the weather, then figure it's going to be worse up on the top of the mountains on course.

Withdrawing

If you wish to withdraw at any stage, you need to do so at an aid station and notify the attendants of your intention to withdraw. We will then do what we can to get you away from the aid station as soon as we can, but given the length of the event calling friends or a cab might be the fastest option.

For withdrawals prior to the run please email infoATwonderlandrunDOTcomDOTau and also refer to R for "Refunds" above.
