Get your crew together for an end of year celebration at the GC50 Run Festival. It’s the perfect way to celebrate Christmas with your club or training group!
When you register for the event you will have the opportunity to nominate your club from the drop down box in the registration process. If your club does not appear in the list, simply email [email protected] and we’ll get this added right away for you. ‘Clubs’ need not be a formally constituted Club but can be any fitness, training group or corporate group. You simply need a name.
How to win the Club Challenge?
The Club that wins the Club Challenge will be that which accumulates the greatest number of points for the races in accordance with the following formula:
- by turnout, weighted at five points per runner, and
- by performance with points awarded for placings in the races, (10 for 1st, down to 1 for 10th). These points will apply over all races, i.e. 50 km, 30 km, 15 and 5 km. Points for the relay will also apply but will be shared between the team members.

Clubs who nominate a minimum of 10 members will be provided with a 3 x 3 marquee, free of charge to use on the day. So, for 10 entrants your club would get one marquee erected, 20 or more entrants you’d get 2 marquees and so on. We will also supply an esky and ice for each marquee, so you can bring your own refreshments. This can act as a base for your club on event day and a great spot to kick back after the race!
Clubs may bring their own marquee if they prefer. Details for positioning and set up of marquees will be emailed to all nominated club leads 1 week prior to the event.
When you enter the registration process, you will be asked if you are ‘entering as a participant’ or ‘creating a team’.
You use the ‘creating a team’ option only if you are entering the 2 person relay. This is not associated with the Club Challenge.
When entering as an individual click on ‘enter as a participant’. To join your club (if applicable) you will see a drop down box where you nominate your club or group during the registration process.
