Note:

  • Part of our Parks Victoria Event Permit states that if the fire danger on the event day is rated as Code Red Catastrophic in the South West fire region (Victorian CFA Fire Danger Ratings) then the event must be postponed. A fire rating of “extreme” on event day in the South West fire region may also cause the event to be postponed, following discussions with CFA, DEPI and Parks Victoria.
  • In all other circumstances it should be assumed that the event is still going ahead UNLESS otherwise stated
  • Rapid Ascent reserves the right to alter or amend the originally proposed course from that which was published on the event website for any reason
  • Advice of any event postponement or change will be made on the front page of the event website at www.GiantOdyssey.com as early as possible before the event, and will be posted to the official race notice board at the registration marquee
