As well as having fun, we understand that those participating in events do so for many reasons – with goals ranging from simply completing the course, to competing to win one’s division or event category outright. We, therefore, endeavour to fairly acknowledge the participation of many while also recognizing the achievement of the few.


Acknowledgement of participation

We try to exceed expectations when it comes to providing event participant returns. Each team member will receive some fantastic swag (including an event branded merchandise, sponsor product samples, and discount vouchers) in their gift pack at the registration expo; plus go in the draw for a share of a bountiful quantity of quality spot prizes at the awards ceremony – from our wonderfully generous family of sponsors.

The estimated total value of the product to be given away is over $100,000.00.


Spot prize draw prizes

All team members will go in the draw to win some fabulous spot prizes at the awards ceremony. Team members must be present (if drawn) to select their choice from the seriously cool spot prize items on stage.

Please ensure you arrive at least 30 minutes before the event awards ceremony and spot prize draw begin as all participants will need to be given a spot prize ticket. Please see the event staff giving these out on arrival. One ticket per person. Only participants who are at the event awards ceremony are eligible to win a spot prize.

To find out what items you have a chance of winning in the spot prize draw, please like our event Facebook page – here, where we will post photos of prizes as they come in.


Achievement awards

Wonderful event performance prizes of fabulous sponsors’ products will be awarded to each team member representing the first to third-team place-getters in each age division in each event category. We will also be recognising the first three overall teams (regardless of age division) in the intro, short, medium & long courses with some amazing pieces of art from Metal Bird for all team members. A total of 144 team member performance prizes.
