Cobber Classic will take a unique approach to cut offs with the view of giving everyone the best possible chance to finish an Ultra. Instead of enforcing cutoffs, there will be minimum times that each runner must leave each Aid Station.

Transition/Aid 1- Clackline - runner must leave by 9:32 a.m.

Transition/Aid 2- Wooroloo- runner must leave by 12:44 p.m.

Transition/Aid 3- Mt Helena- runner must leave by 3:08 p.m.

Finish- Red Hill - Cutoff 5:43 p.m.

This has been calculated at an 8min / km pace which, on the non-technical/relatively flat course, will be achievable to almost everyone. If the runner does not leave the Aid Station by the required time, they have the option to skip that section and get a ride to the next Transition point by their own means. If they arrive prior to the cutoff time for this section, they can carry on to finish Gladiator style into Red Hill! Woohoo!

Duo...if the first runner does not reach Wooroloo by 12:44 p.m, the second runner will be sent off at 12:44 p.m. to continue the race.

Relays....each relay team member will be sent off from the start of their section at the 'required time runner must leave' as mentioned above, regardless of whether your teammate(s) reached their cutoff time.

This race is a challenge but accessible for all runners to achieve a result that they can be proud of.

Drop Bags:

Runner must clearly label bag with the following information:

- Which Transition/Aid station you'll want access to your bag (T1, T2, T3, or Finish), runner's name, and runner's bib number.

Want to access a bag at every checkpoint? Then you'll need to pack multiple drop bags!

T3 drop bag must include a headlamp. To be checked at Rego on bib collection, and also at T3 on leaving time.

All drop bags will be dropped at the start and available for collection at the finish.

+1015m and -932m
