Lactic Turkey Events tries to do our bit for the environment and we’ve been #paperplasticcupfree for our trail runs for three years now.  We use a 220ml foldable/crushable reusable cup as per below.

Everyone will get one of these cups free for their first event to use at our event or any other event that is cupless!

If you lose your cup for some reason then you can purchase replacements for $4.  These can be purchased at our online store HERE.

There will not be any paper/plastic cups at the aid stations throughout the day or at the finish line, so you will need to take this on the run with you to use.


We have event trucker caps and our Lactic Turkey first aid kits for sale as part of the entry process or our online store HERE.

$20 – Trucker 5-panel Mesh Caps

We wear these caps ourselves and no matter if its a formal cap for wearing out and about or your running cap, these things look good and are quality.

$18 – Lactic Turkey Custom Survival Compact First Aid Kit

This is put together to meet the standards for most event compulsory gear requirements.

This contains: Alcohol wipes, antiseptic wipes, non-adherent dressing, plasters, plaster fabric strip, safety pins, scissors, a survival blanket, tri-angular banadage and a lactic turkey emergency whistle.

All contained in a resealable waterproof bag measuring 14x8x2cm


Camping will be offered for free to all participants on the Saturday evening before the event.  We want to show you what facilities are available and encourage a whole weekend experience of the park and surrounding area rather than flitting in just for a quick run around and leaving again.

Please indicate during the entry process if you are planning to camp on the night of the event so we can monitor numbers.

Camp facilities are reasonably basic however there are toilets and drinking water available.

Camping will be offered at the first three events only.

If you didn’t order camping during the entry process you can do so at our online store HERE.
