Please support all event sponsors as they are truly what make these events possible.
Bike mechanics will be on attendance at the Event Centre throughout the event.
The sub-branches of the RSL club will have a BBQ working around the clock within the event centre to cater to all of your needs. The RSL club kitchen will be in operation during standard operating hours, and the bar will be open for all of your refreshment requirements.

A coffee van will be in attendance for the duration of the event. Please be kind to them on Sunday morning, as over 1000 riders trying to get their caffeine fix from the one place could turn very ugly.

The Husky15 is a participation ride for those riders aged 7 and up. Riders under the age of 10 are required to ride with a parent or guardian. The Husky15 is designed as a participation ride and therefore should not be ridden by those intending to "race" the event. Husky15 riders will be given their own number plates and timing chips so that they can feel a part of the days action. There will be no age categories - everyone will be a winner in the Husky15!
There are three aid-stations situated on the course at approximately the 25km, 50km and 75km marks (25km mark only for those doing the 50km course). You will be able to refill water bottles and bladders with water, or why not drop a Shotz Hydration tablet?
There will be some other goodies available including bananas and lollies for those feeling a little the worse for wear. We strongly encourage all riders, however, to be self-sufficient with their race nutrition, as there is no guarantee that there will be any goodies left by the time you arrive.
St. Johns Ambulance service will be in attendance to see to any niggles, scrapes or scratches that you may have before, during or after the event.
We also have 2 mobile paramedics roaming the course, acting as a first point of contact in the case of a more serious injury or ailment that may occur.
We strongly advise riders to carry a mobile phone throughout the event in your backpack or jersey pocket, incase you happen upon a serious injury. Course marshals will also be on course at frequent intervals, and have the ability to contact first-aid or an ambulance in an emergency.

- Hydration pack or two full bidons.
