Every runner will be issued a small GPS tracking device so that we can monitor your progress across the course. This new feature enhances the safety of all runners. You can check out the units here: track me live website

An added bonus is that your friends, family and crew will be able to follow your progress, using the link to be provided.

These work off the telstra network so there will be drop-out and some periods of inactivity. Tell your family not to worry unless you run right off the map. By which stage we will hopefully be heading you off! And no kind of signal will penetrate Big River valley so don't sweat that section too much. Your runner will be doing enough of that for both of you.
